  • I made this recipe for the first time tonight, but also couldn’t figure out what speed 9 was on my Blendtec Designer Series. I think I understand now it’s the highest speed for 50 seconds. I used 1 1/2 C water & 6 T Powdered Buttermilk. I used hard winter red wheat berries. I used olive oil and honey in place of the canola oil and sugar. They turned out a little thicker than I expected, but still very good. I would like recipes for the Blendtec Designer Series so I don’t have to figure out the speed and timing.

  • I made this using 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour and 4 tsp of melted coconut oil. used batter on machine. then added frozen blueberries and mixed them in with spatula. Fried them on the electric grill 300-350 F with coconut oil. Turned out good.

  • what is wheat berries and where do you buy them? Have you tried this with a different oil. Canola oil is not health.

    linda menne on

  • I made these and they were fantastic. I used hard red winter wheat berries from the Whole Foods bulk food bin. I also used olive oil instead of canola and sucanat for the sugar. They came out super light and very delicious. And a great color as well. I can’t believe how much easier it is to make pancakes if you don’t use anything resembling flour.

  • We use this recipe for belgian waffles as well and they turn out very nicely. It’s one of our go-to recipe for a quick meal, paired with blendtec’s strawberry syrup.

  • wheat berries are what wheat comes from before it’s ground. my aunt could order them from her co-op. perhaps health food stores

  • A full cycle means to run it until it automatically stops. A full cycle is 50 seconds.

    Blendtec on

  • i have a question. what is "full cycle" exactly mean? It seems that it will keep running on speed 9 "forever". I followed the directions and im not sure if its right? its really really thick. to the point it wont really spin in the blender now. I made the regular pancakes without trouble but these dont seem to be working the best for some reason. thanks

  • Hi Lisa, "High" is the same as speed 9.

    Blendtec on

  • I have a new Blendtec. It does not have a speed 9. How long should I run and at low, medium or high. I ran it until it stopped on low, but it is very runny.

    Lisa on

  • These are a staple in our house now. I made several batches and freeze them. We use 1 1/4 cup soft white wheat berries and substitute the canola oil for coconut oil. Don’t bother melting the coconut oil — it mixes in fine cold. My family prefers when I use 1 c. of milk + 1/2 c. yogurt. That gives the pancakes a nice tangy flavor. You could also use buttermilk. That would work as well.

    Leah Brooks on

  • What does "Speed Up" to Speed 9 mean? I bought a blender at costco and it doesn’t have these settings? Your ‘conversion’ tables, such as they are, don’t even mention this sort of setting???

    Jeff on

  • Great recipe! I’ve used it several times mostly for waffles. But I use raw whole milk from a local farm (NEVER use low fat ANYTHING), butter or coconut oil, (canola oil is so very bad for you), and honey (white sugar is a no no)
    Blendtec, I wish you would get up to date on what is considered "healthy." LOVE your blender but some of your recipes leave much to be desired.

    Linda A on

  • I’ve taught several people how to make these pancakes and had a couple people buy Blendtecs just to make these pancakes. Can you please, please, please develop more recipes that start with wheat berries? Like brownies, muffins, etc? I keep meaning to play around with some of the other recipes but don’t really have the time. Looking forward to more recipes!

    Leah Brooks on

  • Hi Jeff, we’re working on updating our conversion guides as well as updating our recipes. Speed 9 means a High speed. :) Happy blending!

    Blendtec on

  • You are correct, something is off! It should be 1/4 cup of batter. Sorry about that!

    Blendtec on

  • If I follow this recipe exactly, using 1/2 c batter per pancake, I get 5.5 pancakes. But according to your nutritional information, the recipe makes 12 pancakes (6 servings times 2 pancakes each). Obviously something is off. Perhaps just one pancake has 210 calories instead of two? I don’t want to fool myself into thinking these delicious pancakes have half the calories they actually do. Please clarify.

    Amy Sellers on

  • I recently made this in my brand new blendtec exactly as stated and my batter was so thick it was paste. Also the very hot! I am wondering if there are a certain kind of wheat berries to use or if there is something wrong with my machine? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Sarah on

  • That makes more sense. Still worth the calories: )Thank you!
