Did you know that buckwheat isn’t actually a grain? It’s ground from a small seed, and related to rhubarb, but has wheat-like characteristics! (source)  Which makes it even that much better considering the large number of people who can not tolerate gluten.

Buckwheat is so high in antioxidants that the nutritious benefits might outweigh some fruits and vegetables! Buckwheat is also high in magnesium and high in fiber!Buckwheat pancake recipe! This nutty variation to an all grain pancake is delicious!

In order to incorporate some of this wholesome food into our diet, I got a small bag of buckwheat flour from the health food store bulk section. It was just a little over a dollar.  I Found a recipe for pancakes that included buckwheat and mixed some up.  They were EXTREMELY delicious. It reminded me of a bed and breakfast I stayed at when I would travel for work.  My kids devoured them.

To make pancakes healthier, we always add fruit in the batter, on top of the pancake, or make a syrup out of fruit.  We also love to add yogurt to the top of our pancakes.  My kids haven’t been completely sold on pure maple syrup, but they do like fruit and yogurt.

You can substitute buckwheat for flour in many baked goods. Start by using 7/8ths cup buckwheat to replace 1 cup of flour.  If you use 100% buckwheat, you won’t get your baked goods to rise properly, so I would avoid a 100% substitution.  For these pancakes, we wanted to use both buckwheat flour and regular flour.  You can find it in the baking aisle by other specialty flours.

We always top our pancakes and waffles with fruit compote and vanilla yogurt. So yummy! I have never heard of anyone else that eats yogurt on them though. People always think it sounds really weird, but once they taste it they love it.

These look great. My only suggestion would be to replace the canola oil with coconut oil if possible because most canola oil is genetically modified and it is not a healthy fat (even thought that is what we have been told over the last 10 years.) Coconut oil is a healthy saturated fat.

I use buckwheat a lot. Our favorite pancakes are buckwheat and rice (whole grains) soaked over night then in the morning I toss them in the blender with all the other ingredients and give it a whirl. Easy and delicious.
Buckwheat is awesome for us gf folks.

I just wanted to mention that you can easily make your own buckwheat flour. Grind buckwheat groats in a Vitamix and in seconds you have buckwheat flour!
