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.

    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.

  2. Kate @Almond Butter Binge says

    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!

  3. 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.

  4. Brittany77 says

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

  5. 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?

  6. 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!

  7. 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)

  8. Beth says

    I just signed up for emails- what a fantastic blog! I have been looking for something like this so I can still treat my kids without giving them unhealthy food. Thanks!

  9. 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!

    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.

  11. 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

  12. 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!

  13. 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!

  14. Mallika Somershein says

    Made these yesterday. My god, some of the fluffiest pancakes!! I did the blender trick. I used whole wheat pastry flour and some additional spices: cinnamon, ginger, and a dash of allspice (ran out of nutmeg) topped with local honey. Just delish! Grateful to have found your blog, since I’ve literally always cooked without eggs. Think I will feature them on my upcoming blog
