Blueberry Buckwheat Pancake

Bluberry-Buckwheat-PancakeThis is the first time I actually liked buckwheat pancakes. They usually come out dry, but this version is moist and fluffy. Although I love to drench pancakes into maple syrup, this version is sweet enough to eat without it.

Ingredients: 1/2 cup buckwheat (soaked in plenty of water for 2 hours or preferably over night), 1 cup whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup sorghum flour, 1 t baking power, 1 t baking soda, 1 T flax seeds (grind), 1/2 t salt, 1 t stevia powder (optional), 2 T sunflower oil (or another quiet vegetable oil such as canola oil), 4 oz apple sauce, 1 cup soy milk , 1/2 t vanilla extract, 1/2 cup blueberries (frozen is okay)

  1. In a small bowl, mix flax seeds with soy milk.
  2. In a big bowl, mix all the flours, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix apple sauce, oil, vanilla extract, drained buckwheat, blueberries, and the flax seed soy milk.
  4. Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients’ bowl. Mix.
  5. Heat a frying pan at medium heat. Coat with vegetable oil. Drop a heaping table spoon full of batter for each pancake.
  6. When the edge looks getting dry, flip with a spatula. Cook a few more minutes until it’s done.
