    Wheat berries are raw, you blend them in the blendtec to make flour. If you don’t have them, you could just use flour. 1 cup of berries makes 1 and 2/3 cup. That’s an ish, I’m not 100%.

    The wheat berries are just raw wheat kernels. You can sub buckwheat groats for the wheat berries.

    Under Nutritional Information I believe the CHOLESTEROL count of 920mg
    Must be a Mistake. If not a mistake then this recipe should come stamped
    with "WARNING these Pancakes could be Hazardous to your Health!" across the top of the page. If this is accurate what raises the cholesterol so high? (I have flax oil and flax seeds in packages and neither has cholesterol listed on label???)

    Wheat berries are just plain wheat. Not ground, cooked or otherwise changed. Just wheat.


  • Blendtec

    Wheat berries are what you grind up to make flour. They are raw. You can substitute 1 1/3 cup of flour in place of the wheat berries.
