Organic Buckwheat Blueberry Pancakes

You had me at buckwheat!
What a whirlwind of a weekend and it's not even over yet!  Friday night, we went to Maplewood's "Let Them Eat Art" festival and the kids had snow cones, faces and arms painted and we watched the belly dancers shimmy up a storm in the St. Louis humidity! 

You may have heard me squeal when I realized there was a Penzeys in St. Louis!  I had no idea!  So you can guarantee there was a stop along the way since it was along the fair route.  WINNING!

My purchases.  See I have will power.  I held back!
I woke up Saturday morning and whipped up some fab-freakin-tabulous Organic Buckwheat Blueberry Pancakes thanks to Ellie Krieger (I used mostly organic ingredients)!  My blueberries were huge and they just popped in your mouth!  Served along with real maple syrup this time for me.  I just couldn't bring myself to pour on the fake stuff since these pancakes were so outrageously healthy. 

We had my parents over for dinner on Saturday and I will blog about that later this week.

Buckwheat Blueberry Pancakes

by Deelicious Sweets
Keywords: entree breakfast
Ingredients (4 servings)
  • 3/4 cup buckwheat flour - organic
  • 3/4 cup whole-wheat pastry flour - organic
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk - organic
  • 3/4 cup nonfat milk
  • 1 tablespoon honey - organic
  • 2 large eggs - organic
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 cups blueberries, divided - organic. I also didn't divide my blueberries, I threw them all in to the batter!
  • real maple syrup for serving - organic
In a large bowl whisk together the flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, beat together the buttermilk, non-fat milk, honey, eggs, and oil. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, mixing only enough to combine them. Stir in 1 cup of berries.
Preheat a large nonstick griddle or skillet over a medium flame. Ladle the batter onto the skillet with a 1/4-cup measure. Flip the pancake when it is golden brown on the bottom and bubbles are forming on top, about 1 1/2 minutes. Cook the other side until golden brown, about 1 1/2 minutes. Serve topped with more blueberries and the maple syrup.
