t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.


Multi-Grain Blender Pancakes

I love this recipe because on any brain dead morning, or lets be honest, usually evening, you can whip it out with zero forethought. Now I know you can do that all the time if you use a pancake mix, but if you are trying to cook with whole grains with no storebought nasty fillers...this is your number (you don't even have to have your wheat ground ahead!!). If you have a blender you can make it happen!

Multi-Grain Blender Pancakes
1/3 c powdered milk and c water*
1/3 c raw kamut**
1/3 c raw spelt**
1/3 c raw whole wheat**
2 T powdered eggs or 2 whole eggs
2 T virgin coconut oil
2 t baking powder
2 T pure maple syrup (or natural sweetener of your choice)
1/2 t real salt

Put milk, water and grains in blender. Blend on highest speed for 3-5 minutes, or until batter is smooth. Add remaining ingredients and blend on low. You may need to add 1/2-1 c of additional water to make batter to your preferred consistency.
Bake on a hot cast iron griddle. Double the oil for a great waffle batter.

*Can substitute 1 c regular milk or 2/3 c instant and 1 c water
**Can substitute any combination of grains
