On Saturday we got a new fridge, which of course necessitated that I clean out our old one. Among the many long-forgotten items that had been shoved to the back? Buckwheat flour! I can’t remember what initially prompted me to buy this stuff, all I know is now I am determined to use it. Enter: blueberry buckwheat pancakes. Technically they are banana blueberry buckwheat pancakes, but that seemed like too long of a name, not to mention too much alliteration.
These are super simple and delicious! Perfect for a lazy weekend morning paired with coffee and an excess of time. Pancakes just make me feel happy and indulgent, ya know?
