Cracked Wheat Recipes

Easy Cracked Wheat Cereal

1 cups whole wheat berries
3 cups water
1/4 to 1/2 tsp sea salt (or regular salt if needed)

Rinse the wheat and drain. Put wheat berries, water, salt into the blender; cover (optional: let sit to soak for 1 hour). DO NOT change water, as nutrients will be lost. Blend on/off at low speed, until wheat is cracked in small pieces. Pour all into a double broiler. Cook for at least 30 minutes. Stir two times during cooking; replace lid after each time stirring.

Cracked Wheat Pancakes

2 eggs or 1 egg + 2 egg whites
2 TBSP honey
3/4 cups plain yogurt
1/4 cup water
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup unbleached flour
1 TBSP baking powder
1/2 to 1 cup cooked cracked wheat (you can use the recipe above for the cooked cracked wheat)

Mix eggs, honey, yogurt, water, vanilla; beat. Add the unbleached flour, baking powder, salt; stir. Slowly add the cooked cracked wheat, stirring well. Can add more water if needed. Cook pancakes on medium high heat.
