Recipe for Blueberry Buckwheat Pancakes

Happy Friday! I am so glad my weekend has already started. It was a busy week at work for me. I work for Healthy Utah, the worksite wellness program for the state. Every year we have a conference for our wellness council members. The conference was yesterday and it went really well. We had speakers address nutrition and physical activity at work, tobacco free worksites, and we also launched a new "Work Well" Challenge. It was a lot of work, but everything went well. I am still glad it is over though:)

The other night we made breakfast for dinner. We do this a lot because we rarely have time to make anything fancy or special in the morning. I usually just eat my oatmeal at my desk. I've been wanting to try buckwheat flour for awhile, so we made Blueberry Buckwheat Pancakes.

Buckwheat flour has a rich, nutty flavor and is high in protein and fiber. It is also gluten free. We mixed the buckwheat flour with whole wheat flour. I loved the texture and flavor of these pancakes. They were wholesome and filling. We added in fresh blueberries which really made these pancakes special.

If you are looking for a new healthy breakfast or even dinner option, try these pancakes! This batch made enough for about six people. We had extras, so we put some in the freezer to reheat on busy mornings! Enjoy and have a great weekend!

Blueberry Buckwheat Pancakes
Adapted from Ellie Krieger

(Printable Recipe)

1 cup buckwheat flour
3/4 whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup low-fat buttermilk
3/4 cup skim milk
1 T honey
2 eggs
2 T. sugar
1 T. canola oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup of fresh blueberries
Extra blueberries and fruit for serving (optional)
Powdered sugar
Maple Syrup

In a large bowl whisk together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. In another bowl, beat together the buttermilk, non-fat milk, honey, eggs, sugar, oil, and vanilla. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, mixing only enough to combine them. Stir in berries.

Preheat a large nonstick griddle. You can use a skillet if you don't have a griddle. Ladle the batter onto the hot griddle or skillet , use about a 1/4 cup batter. Flip the pancake when it is golden brown on the bottom and there are lots of bubbles. Don't flip them too soon. Cook the other side until golden brown. Serve hot with syrup and extra fruit, if you wish!

Oh, not to worry, I welcome breakfast any time of the day (except... breakfast, it seems, hehe). I just need my protein to go with the sweet! I'm such a guy!

Great idea to use buckwheat for these delicious pancakes! I've got lots of buckwheat flour and we love blueberry pancakes so I'll definitely be making this recipe!

We do breakfast for dinner all the time. It always feels like you are getting away with something - like having ice cream for breakfast. These look perfect for a weekend morning though. Love all the fruit!

breakfast for dinner is such a fun notion, especially when said breakfast consists of pancakes. my mom is a HUGE fan of buckwheat cakes, and i'm more of a blueberry-lover, so we could definitely find a happy medium here. this recipe shall be reserved for her birthday. :)

It's been too long since I made a big stack of buckwheat pancakes. And blueberries and buckwheat? A great pair, if there ever was one!

We love breakfast for dinner. When I make pancakes, I usually double the batch and freeze what we don't eat. I put 2/per package and reheat them in the microwave and they're just as delicious as before.

these blueberry buckwheat pancakes look so healthy and delicious.

I adore pancakes... never had buckwheat flour, so I will have to amend that situation! Have a great weekend.

Those look delicious and healthy! Is buckwheat something they sell in bulk for food storage? That would be great so to have this recipe to go with it. Thanks!

Thanks everyone!

Kasha-I bought the buckwheat flour at Sunflower Market, a health food grocery store in Utah. I bought it out of a bin, by the pound. I am sure you could stock up for food storage. Most grocery stores probably have it.

They look delish! Blueberry is the best kind of pancake!

I'm glad I could help with the strawberries. Two pounds is quite a bit for two people, unless you really, really dig strawberries :)

I pretty much love buckwheat. Some people like pasta or rice, I eat buckwheat and kasha. This is great with blueberries :)

But I do appreciate oatmeal too!
