Buckwheat Pancakes a Healthy Alternative

Did you know that Buckwheat is gluten free? Yes, it is true. Even though wheat is in the name don't let that fool you. Buckwheat is very high in protein and a good source of iron. It has a slight nutty flavor. It will give your baked goods a light brown color similar to baking with whole wheat. It is generally mixed with other flours for best results. It is a healthy alternative to the dreaded "white" flour pancakes. Eat well while not wrecking your diet.


My employee, Dean, brought me a bag of buckwheat this week to experiment with. I often make my employees lunch, but today decided to make them breakfast. I made incredible tasting Buckwheat Pancakes. I added even more nutrition by adding chi seeds for my daily dose of Omega 3 and blueberries for added antioxidants. I actually used rice milk, as I was out of regular milk. The flavor was amazing and the texture was delightful. My employees all said these were a winner. Surprise your family and friends with a pancake breakfast or better yet, make them for dinner! Enjoy!
