A different take on pancakes, try out this healthy pancake recipe!
Remember how a few months ago I shared 5 Ingredient Blender Muffins? They were healthy and delicious. I’m excited to share a new recipe with you today that is both healthy and delicious as well but only FOUR ingredients: Blender Pancakes.
Now the ingredients look a little scary. I wasn’t sure we’d be able to really appreciate the end result. But I’m happy to report that I made them with Drew, my trusty kitchen side kick, and both he and Julia loved them. Jules made mention that they taste similar to German Pancakes (my favorite! I need to post it here). I think it has to do with the amount of eggs involved. The more you blend them, the fluffier they will be. I blended it up a few times. The first time I hit the mix button I had my doubts that they’d turn into batter. But after a few clicks, it turned into batter like form.
Note: these are not traditional pancakes. They taste different but they are good. They are an awesome alternative to the norm.
When I found the recipe, it noted that you could make it without the extract. But we love love love almond extract in our home. So there was no way I was sacrificing that ingredient. You could make these with only 3 ingredients if you want.

Have you made anything out of the ordinary with your blender? Are you trying to eat a little healthier?
I am curious to try this recipe. What type of oats do you recommend?
You already love these foods which means that “quality” should not be a factor.
Try a week on just wholefoods, nothing processed, no packaging.
This is understandably the body’s reaction to reduced toxicity.

Why not the yolk for the extra nutrition?
Will it work with the yolk?

This is actually an old weight watchers core recipe. It is a really good recipe. Cinnamon really is a good ad on

i love using my blender in the mornings. i can’t wait to try this!!!
I’ve made these for years. I like to add a tsp of cinnamon (which helps hide the cottage cheese taste for picky eaters). If you add a little baking powder they will be fluffier. These also work well as waffles in a traditional waffle iron- not Belgian. I always double it and freeze the extras to pop in the toaster another day!
Thank you for the tips Erin. I’m definitely going to try freezing them and putting them in the toaster- brilliant!
