Tightwad Tuesday...Making Sprouted Wheat Flour ( and Healthy Wholewheat Pancakes Pt. 2)

If you have been visiting lately you would know that I am on the hunt for incorporating soaked, fermented, and sprouted recipes lately. I finally jumped in and sprouted my own wheat berries and made sprouted wheat flour. If you were to go to the health food store you would pay a lot to buy already sprouted wheat berries. And this is where the savings tip comes in. I found some neat videos to show how to sprout your own wheat for a fraction of the price.

I saw some techniques lately that were a bit more complicated and then I found these videos. Oh they are so easy to implement. I sprouted some of my own wheat berries, dehydrated them in my dehydrator, ground them in my wheat grinder and made some pancakes. ( Part 1 of making healthy pancakes is HERE) They were wonderful! I used the flax seed egg replacement and had the most fluffy and light wholewheat pancakes I had ever had . I also used 1/2 the amount melted butter ( or olive oil) and 1/2 applesauce to replace what it called for oil in the recipe. With all these alterations not only do you have VERY healthy pancakes you have done many ways to decrease what you would have had to pay to make them.

Oh btw here is my pancake recipe that I use...

Mary's Pancakes ( Non soaked)

2 serving of flax seed egg replacement ...1 Tbsp. ground flax seed to 2-3 Tbsp.s water
2 cup of ground sprouted wholewheat flour
2 tsp. sugar
2 Tbsp baking powder
2 Tbsp.s melted butter or olive oil
2 Tbsp.s applesauce
1-2 two cups milk to desired consistancy ( I personally put in 1/4th the amount of milk and 3/4ths the amount water)

Beat eggs with a fork or whisk till light and fluffy: beat in remaining ingredients just until smooth.

If you try them come back and let me know how they turned out. :bake

    Unfortunately, your friend here, is in a great deal of pain due to wheat and other grains, yep, Mary is official...I need to go grain free and become a Master's Diet only protein, veggies and fruit eater! Phew! what a mouthful :)

    Love you...and yes, can't wait until tomorrow!


  2. Hi, Mary,

    I've sprouted other seeds, but not wheat berries. I'll have to think about it for a while and really plan for this! I know it's healthy, but there's only so much I can do. I'm trying. :)

    I hope you're having a beautiful summer day up there in the north!
