Sunday Morning 100% Buckwheat Pancakes

Once a week I like to take a detour from my morning smoothie.

100% Buckwheat pancakes are my special, weekly treat. But buckwheat is by no means a junk food. According to whfoods.org, It contains all eight essential amino acids, including lysine, and tons of fiber!

1 1/2 cups buckwheat flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 T. olive oil
2 cups buttermilk (I never have buttermilk on hand so I just squeeze the juice of one lemon and top off with milk to 2 cups.)

  1. Heat the pan on medium heat.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients with a whisk.
  3. Slowly mix in the oil and buttermilk — DO NOT overmix! Some lumps are ok!
  4. Oil the hot pan and ladle the batter onto it in whatever formation you desire.
  5. The pancake should be done after 2-3 minutes. My Poppie’s trick was to flip the pancake when you could see bubbles on the surface.
  6. Serve plain,  with butter and maple syrup, plain yogurt and syrup, fruit, or whatever you are craving! Be sure to keep hydrated as these are high-fiber and “cleansing.”
Buckwheat Pancakes

Ian likes me to add mashed banana, dark chocolate pieces, and walnuts. We call them “Monkey Pancakes.”
