Buckwheat Pancakes for One

Sometimes you just need to sleep in and make yourself pancakes.

I’ve been playing around with buckwheat flour for a few months now. I actually prefer it straight up, not mixed with AP flour. I like really hearty grain taste and the more fiber the better. This recipe could be adapted to use half buckwheat flour/AP flour for those that are not as crazy about grains as me.

I also think it’s important to make recipes that can be vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, etc. There are going to be people out there that need these types of diets. While I’m lucky enough to practically be a human receptacle of all foods, a lot of people are not.

This one is for my gluten-free/vegan friends:
