Our brand-new Instant Pot Book

We've written THE Bible for every model of Instant Pot. Yep. Every. Model. Including the new Max machines. The recipes are written so that you can use whatever buttons you've got. They're written so about a third of them can be used with EITHER the pressure cooker or the slow cooker mode. They are 350 of them--including some of the most innovative "road map" recipes you've ever seen. And the book is priced to sell. Check. It. Out. Here.

    Turbo Blender Oat And Honey Pancakes

    You thought you bought that high-RPM, high-horsepower blender to make smoothies! We're here to change all that. Check out our newest podcast in the window at the top of the main recipe page (or here).

    Then check out our new book, THE TURBO BLENDER DESSERT REVOLUTION. We've got ice creams, custards, puddings, panna cotta, brownies, muffins, layer cakes, and more, often without dirtying another bowl (and sometimes in the case of puddings and such, without every turning on the stove).

    And as a bonus, there's a chapter of pancake and waffle recipes, too!

    We're out to revolutionize baking. Here's a sneak peek, a recipe from the book. Check it out. Promise.



    Makes about 12 four-inch pancakes

    • 1 1/2 cups steel-cut oats
    • 1/2 cup soft white wheat berries
    • 1/2 tablespoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1 1/4 cups regular buttermilk
    • 2 tablespoons canola oil
    • 2 tablespoons honey
    • 1 large egg
    • Nonstick spray
    • Water, as needed

    1. Place the oats and wheat berries in the large canister, cover, and blend at the highest speed until a fine flour, about 1 minute. Add the baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Cover again and blend at the highest speed until uniform, about 10 seconds. Add the buttermilk, oil, honey, and egg; cover and blend at low speed until smooth, about 20 seconds.

    2. Lightly coat the inside of a large, nonstick griddle or skilloet with nonstick spray. Set over medium-low heat for 1 minute. Use a scant 1/4-cup batter to make several pancakes on the hot surface, spacing them about 2 inches apart. Cook until open bubbles dot the wet surface, about 2 minutes. Flip the pancakes, then continue cooking until browned and cooked through, about 1 minute. Transfer to a platter and continue making more pancakes, stirring water into the batter in 1-tablespoon increments as necessary to keep it pourable and regreasing the hot surface as necessary to keep the pancakes from sticking.
