Pioneer Pancakes - Another use for those hard red winter wheat berries

If you love pancakes and happen to have a Blendtec blender... try the pioneer pancake recipe.  They are really quite delicious and you can't really make a simpler pancake.  I don't know if this would work in a regular blender or not.

You can see the recipe on my blog. I modified it slightly to replace the canola oil with olive oil. I am sure it comes out great with any kind of milk, but with whole milk I can verify they taste great and very light.

The only reason I would question how well this would work in a regular blender is I don't know how a regular blender would handle the dry wheat berries added to milk and then blended.  I love not having to use actual flour, as it makes it very easy to prepare and clean up.
