Buckwheat pancakes are synonymous with childhood for me! Growing up, my grandparents made them every single Saturday. Actually they made two batches, one regular buttermilk pancake batch for my grandma, and one buckwheat mix for my grandpa. They could not agree, so they made both! I was always on my grandpa’s side, so the two of us enjoyed these each Saturday! My grandma was milk intolerant, but could tolerate buttermilk. Treats from childhood stick with you forever. This happy memory involves a lot of laughing while breakfast was made, eaten, and the dishes hand washed afterwards! My grandparents are both in heaven now, but I continue their tradition. Recipe makes 16 pancakes.
These pancakes rise to perfection, and many recipes that I have tried don’t. I actually could not find one that I loved, so I just kept fiddling with ingredient amounts over time. These rise and are delicious! My next batch, I want to add pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice! If that works I will post how I did it! Upgrading ingredients in your healthy recipes is a great healthy diet habit to follow. Keep the recipes that you know and love, and add healthier ingredients.
