Buckwheat Pancakes

You may not know, but there is no wheat in buckwheat and buckwheat is closely related to the rhubarb family. We like to grind our own buckwheat, but you can find pure organic buckwheat in the stores. Do not purchase buckwheat flour unless it is 100% buckwheat. Blueberries in the pancakes and yogurt on top, served with buckwheat honey is a very special treat!

  • 2 Cups of Dark Buckwheat Flour
  • 1 Cup of Millet Flour
  • 1 teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoons Powdered Clove
  • 1 Tablespoons Powdered Ginger
  • 2 Tablespoons Powdered Cinnamon
  • 2-4 Egg Whites
  • Water to desired thickness (More =Thinner Pancakes. Less = Thicker Batter and Fluffy Pancakes)


Mix all dry ingredients thoroughly at first, then add 2 cups of water and egg whites. Mix everything thoroughly and add more water as desired slowly.

Cook on a well seasoned black iron pan/griddle over low to medium heat. Cook 3-4 minutes on each side and do not pour pancake batter onto surface until it is very hot (drops of water should evaporate and sizzle immediately when tested on this surface.)

Options: Blueberries, Diced Apple, and Fresh Currants
