Whole wheat blender pancakes

We had an activity yesterday where we made breakfast for dinner and delivered food storage that the sisters had ordered earlier.  We made three different kinds of pancakes.  I made whole wheat blender pancakes.  The recipe is from my parents.  It's pretty awesome because you grind the wheat right there in the blender. 

1 ½ cup milk

2 T. honey or sugar
1 ½ tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1 cup uncooked whole wheat
2 eggs
2 T. oil
Put milk and wheat in blender.  Blend on highest speed for 4 or 5 minutes or until the batter is smooth.  Add and blend on low eggs, oil, baking powder, honey, and salt.  Bake on hot griddle.  (By adding one additional Tbsp wheat and increasing oil to 4 Tbsp, you have waffle batter).  If batter is ever too thin, just add tbsp flour.
Neither Adam nor I are that fond of pancakes.  We prefer waffles but don't have a waffle iron.  These pancakes were really good though.  We had them for dinner tonight.  The kids loved them and even ran back to the table to eat the leftover ones plain!
