Blender Pancakes

Cranberry Oatmeal Blender Pancakes

Reprinted with permission.

  • 3/4 cup rolled oats (60g)
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour (or all-purpose or Bob’s gluten-free) (125g)
  • (CCK Note: Vitamix’s recipe does not call for this, but I’d recommend adding a pinch stevia or 2 tbsp sugar of choice)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups milk of choice (360ml)
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries (30g)
  • 2 tbsp raw sunflower seeds (15g)

Combine the first 5 ingredients in a mixing bowl, and stir. (A trick for even fluffier pancakes: combine the first 5 ingredients in a Vitamix or blender instead of a mixing bowl, and blend for 20 seconds.) Stir in remaining ingredients to form a pancake batter. While waiting 5-10 minutes for the batter to set, lightly grease a medium skillet. Place the skillet over medium heat. When the pan is hot, drop small ladelfuls of pancake batter onto the skillet. Flip pancakes, using a spatula, when the pancake edges begin to look dry. Allow to cook one additional minute, then remove from the heat. Serve with your favorite pancake toppings. Yield: 10-12 pancakes. Thanks again to Vitamix for providing this pancake recipe.

  1. This looks so delicious! Absolutely wonderful!

  2. Yum! I used to be quit a pancake fanatic and I haven’t had any in ages. I rarely have them for breakfast but I’ll make them for dinner sometimes!

  3. Sharlynn Ng says:

    These look so healthy and delicious! I’d topped them off with tonnes of berries!

  4. Leah says:

    Looks delicious! Though I always learned that the way to know when to flip pancakes is when the top starts to bubble.

  5. Mmmm, cranberries and sunflower seeds in pancakes! Usually I sort of avoid things in pancakes because I dislike mushy fruit in general…but this would totally eliminate that problem. Thank you for sharing!

  6. Kinzie says:

    These are really good – I’ve made them a few times. They seem to be the only pancakes so far that everyone at the table likes. And they’re quick to whip up.

  7. Beth says:

    How many pancakes I the nutrition info for? How many servings did you get? (not sure how big they are). They look so good.

    1. Michelle says:

      Per pancake out of 12.

  8. Brittany77 says:

    Yumm! I want to make these tomorrow morning. I will use my food processor and hope for the best 🙂

  9. Taylor says:

    You mention in the post that the pancakes nutritional info is for 48g.

    Is that equivalent to 1 pancake if you stick to the serving sizes of 1 batch making 10-12?

  10. They look and sound fabulous. Nice idea to put cranberries and sunflower seeds in them!

  11. Gemma says:
