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:

    Yummy! Love how fluffy these pancakes look and the ingredients are easy to find and super healthy. No excuse to prepare them this weekend, I’m a true pancake lover and this recipe is a must-try! :-)
    Happy weekend!

  12. Coco says:

  14. Caitlin says:

    OMG these sound (and look!) AWESOME. I looooovvveee cranberries!!! i always have dried cranberries on hand and use them in everything (all my baking! lol). If i win the Vitamix i’m gonna be making these EVERY WEEKEND! (and then become the size of a house! LOL)

  15. Beth says:

  19. Donna DeLillio says:

    I’m putting my separate comment here in the hope I will win the mixer. BUT I also want to tell you that I can’t wait to try some of these great looking recipes… they look delicious… GREAT job!

  20. I just to work at a store where we would throw granola into pancake batter. This is similar and I bet super yummy!

  21. Jennifer Walker says:

    These look delicious! Crossing my fingers for the blender… :)

  22. Violet says:

    I just tried these because I just happened to have all of the ingredients on hand. The sunflower seeds and cranberries were nice. However (and I guess I should have noticed there’s no added sweetener before I started cooking), the raw batter was very bitter so I added 2tbs of sugar. Even with that, the cooked pancakes were a little bitter. They only tasted good slathered in syrup. I don’t think I could have eaten them if I hadn’t added the sugar – the bitterness of the flour is just too much.

    1. Thanks for the feedback!! I agree with you and always include some sweetener in my own pancake recipes. I just went and added a recommendation to Vitamix’s recipe for people like us. :)

  23. Lauren says:

    Hey so when you stack the pancakes for the pictures what do you do with them afterwards? Do they get thrown away or eat them all? Haha random

  24. Webbyrå says:

    This looks delicious!!! I’ll definitely make this recipe some time next week. 😀

  25. Grace says:

    Just made these but added half of a carrot and a bit of vanilla! The carrot really adds some sweetness and it’s perfect!

  26. These were SO GOOD! I was skeptical because I’ve never made pancakes without eggs – but yummo!

  27. Sam says:

    These are on serious repeat at my house. We aren’t vegan but frequently run out of eggs and when you love pancakes as much as we do, you need a good backup plan. These are soooo good. The way I make them though is to blend all of the ingredients together. You dont get to see the whole cranberries or sunflower seeds but you can taste them for sure. And you dont need any extra sweetener this way.
    My girls just asked for pancakes tomorrow and I said you betcha, little ladies!
