Morning Glory Blender Pancakes
Morning glory blender pancakes are made all in the blender, cutting down on dishes to wash! These cinnamon spiced pancakes feature an apple, finely grated carrot, and a banana for a satisfying breakfast.
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Total Time 27 minutes
- 1 large carrot, peeled
- 1 apple, peeled and deseeded
- 3/4 cup buttermilk (see note)
- 1 tbsp granulated sugar
- 1 large banana, ripe
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
Peel carrot and chop into 2-3 pieces. Add to blender and pulse until carrot is in small pieces. Transfer carrot to a separate bowl.
Peel and core apple, roughly chopping it into a few smaller pieces. Add to blender and pulse until it's in small pieces. Add apple to the bowl with the carrot.
To now empty blender, add buttermilk, banana, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Blend until light and creamy.
Add flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt to the blender and blend until just combined.
Add in carrot and apple and give everything one or two quick pulses to combine.
Heat a skillet over low-medium heat. Add a small pat of butter to the skillet and using a folded up paper towel, spread butter around the skillet until melted and no visible chunks of butter remain.
Scoop out pancake batter using a quarter-cup measuring cup and pour onto the skillet. Flip once bubbles appear and the bottoms are golden-brown, then cook until the bottoms reach your desired color. Repeat for the rest of the batter.
A tip if you don't have buttermilk on hand (I frequently don't). In this case I add 2 1/4 tsp of white vinegar to 3/4 cup of regular milk at the very beginning of the recipe, making sure it sits for at least five minutes. This does the trick!
To measure the flour, stir up the flour in its canister so it's fluffy and not packed down. Using a soup spoon, spoon flour into measuring cup until it's heaped in the center, above the edges. Situate the measuring cup over the opening of the canister/bag and level off the flour using the straight edge of the spoon, allowing the excess to fall back in the bag. This way prevents packed in flour, which will add too much to the recipe.
