The Recipes

Orange-Almond Butter
Blender Pancakes with Wheat Kernels

Pancake Topping

But you could use it on many other things!


  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into ¼-inch pieces
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt *

Before You Begin

  • Do not use buckwheat honey; its intense flavor will overwhelm the other flavors


  • Microwave 2 tablespoons butter in medium bowl until melted, about 1 minute
  • Stir in orange zest, honey, almond extract, salt, and remaining 6 tablespoons butter
  • Let mixture stand for 2 minutes
  • Whisk until smooth. (Butter can be refrigerated for up to 3 days or frozen for longer-term storage)

These are the lightest, most delicious, melt-in-your-mouth pancakes ever! Nutritious too!


  • ¾ cup wheat kernels/wheat berries (or 1.25 cup flour of your choice)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 Tbsp honey or sugar
  • ¼ cup cooking oil
  • 2 Tbsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt


  • Put milk and *wheat kernels/wheat berries in blender and blend until smooth. (In my Blendtec, this takes about 1 min and 10 seconds, but could take up to 4 minutes in other blenders) Test by rubbing the batter between your fingers to ensure it isn’t gritty
  • Add remaining ingredients and blend for just a few seconds
  • Pour straight onto a preheated, lightly-oiled griddle at 350 – 375 degrees

** If you are substituting flour for wheat kernels, mix all ingredients in the blender at the same time for just a few seconds until mixed.

Notes for Pancakes

  • Places you can find wheat kernels/wheat berries: Bulk Barn, Earth’s General Store, Blush Lane Organic Market.
  • Make sure your pan has an even coating of oil to ensure even browning of pancakes. Use paper towel to apply evenly.
  • To check whether you pan is ready, place 1 Tbsp of batter in your preheated pan for 1 minute and flip to check for doneness.

To keep pancakes hot as you take them off the griddle:

  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
  • Place a rack inside a baking pan.
  • Place pancakes on rack in pan and keep warm in oven.
  • Do not stack pancakes or put them directly on a pan without a rack.

Bon Appetit!
