Banana Spelt Pancakes

One of the most excellent surprises of late came on my birthday.  I was the very ecstatic recipient of a BLENDTEC Blender!!!  I never thought that I would have one of these in the very near future, but have been eyeing it for some time.  Thor really came through this year, and added I would drool over it every time we were in Costco.

Besides being one of the most superb kitchen appliances I have ever owned, it comes with a recipe book just as superb.  I was most impressed at how clean many of the recipes were when I perused the ingredients.  (If you participate in clean eating or follow Tosca Reno you know what I’m talking about.)  Tonight I made the Banana Spelt Pancake recipe, and it didn’t disappoint.  The pancakes tasted slightly like bananas, were very hearty, and very filling.  Thor supported putting them on ‘keeper’ list for the future, and I saved the extra for breakfast.  If you’re in the mood for pancakes and own a Blendtec blender (or Vitamix blender), this recipe is for you.


  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 Tbsp flaxseeds
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 cup spelt flour
  • 1 Tbsp sucanat
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  •  1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt

Add milk and  flax seeds to jar and secure lid.  Select ‘Batters.’  Add remaining ingredients to jar in order listed and secure lid.  Select ‘Batter.’  Allow batter to rest 5 minutes.  Heat griddle or other pan over medium to medium-high heat and grease.  Pour approximately 1/4 cup batter onto heated pan and cook approximately 1 minute or until bubbles break the surface of the pancake and the underside is golden brown.  Flip and cook for approximately 30 seconds.  Repeat with remaining batter.  Serve immediately or keep warm in the oven at 200 degrees F loosely wrapped in foil.
