Pancake Pizza

I think I'm going to make pancakes just so I can try this one with the kids! In fact, I think I will for lunch. The recipe for the pancakes is here.

1 cup milk
3/4 cup whole wheat berries
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 eggs
dash of salt
peanut butter
apple chunks
shredded coconut

1. Using a glass blender (will scratch plastic), blend milk and wheat berries for 4 minutes on high. (Stop blender intermittently if you're concerned about over-working your blender.)

2. Add baking powder, brown sugar, eggs, and salt to the blender. Replace lid and blend for 1 minute on low.

3. Spoon batter onto a hot greased griddle. Flip pancakes once during cooking (pancakes are ready to flip when bubbles on top stay open). Cook pancakes for several minutes, until done.

To assemble the pizza:

1. First, I re-warmed the leftover pancakes individually in our toaster oven (they were too large for the regular toaster).

2. Then I spread peanut butter over the hot pancake. (That was our "sauce".)

3. Time for the toppings! We used raisins, apple chunks, and shredded coconut ("cheese") for our toppings. :)
