Buckwheat Pancakes with Blueberries and Pecans (GF)

buckwheat pancakes

I found some organic, stone milled buckwheat flour at our Local Family Farms store in Verona.  It is gluten-free, despite it’s name…and it’s Sunday…so I figured I could indulge myself with some pancakes.  The addition of blueberries and pecans comes from our menu from Sunsets Restaurant (2003-2008).  It was a popular and well-loved breakfast item amongst cottagers, locals and our kids.  If gluten is not an issue for you – try the blueberries and pecans with your regular pancake recipe, or try half buckwheat, half all-purpose flour for some extra fiber and flavour.  Either way, blueberries and pecans make a great combo in baked goods.

*This product does turn out drier than conventional pancakes, so try serving maple syrup on the side– it tends to get absorbed quickly.
