Blender Batter Waffles/Pancakes

I haven't tried this, but I like the sound of it! I got it from the Simple Living message boards, but the poster said they just got it from somewhere on the internet. By the way- the rice, oats, groats, or whatever should be raw.

This is the second time I have made your recipe, and the pancakes were delicious. I used the rolled oats, and I also added 1/2 cup of flour because I thought that the batter looked a little thin. I served them with homemade strawberry sauce, sliced sweetened strawberries and whipped cream, with a side of sausage.I had company and everyone enjoyed them, they were so light and fluffy. Thanks for the recipe, it's a keeper.

I make a variation of this recipe every weekend using chia seed meal instead of an egg. I also sometimes use some millet but have not tried the buckwheat yet. This is a great recipe! You can get it most of it ready the night before, you can make pancakes or waffles, you can vary your grains (which is great for allergy issues), you can easily soak your grains (great for digestion), and you don't need to add any starches (which is unusual for a gluten-free recipe).

This recipe does work better for waffles than pancakes in my opinion, but for pancakes it is great too, because it doesn't stick to the skillet!

Super Easy recipe. I did few modifications. First blended 1 1/2 cup of oat until they were finely ground, then added 1 1/2 cup of rice milk and 1 tsp of lemon juice oil. I omitted the vanilla and the egg and added to the blender 1 very ripe pear. After the above were liquid, I added the leavening and salt and blended for few seconds then used the batter on the griddle. Very easy recipe, thanks for posting. I think next time I will use half the oil to make it healthier.
