Tasty Buck wheat Pancakes

Buckwheat Pancakes:

3/4 c whole wheat flour (I used our Red Fife of course!)
3/4 c buckwheat flour
3 tbsp sugar (I omitted, just as good without, or use honey)
2 tsp baking powder (can add up to 3 1/2 if you are a fluffy pancake person)
3/4 tsp sea salt
Sift into a mixing bowl

1 egg (well beaten)
1 c milk
3 tbsp oil
1 tbsp molasses (I omitted because I didn't have any on hand)
Combine separately and pour into flour mixture. Stir just enough to moisten dry ingredients. Do not beat. Fry in a hot, greased fry pan.

Enjoy!! Once again, this recipe is courtesy of my fave cook book "Simply in Season"..."recipes that celebrate fresh, local foods in the spirit of More-with-Less "

For those of you are interested in trying out new grains, we are now offering buckwheat flour for sale. It is a tasty, nutty flavoured flour and we also stone-grind it in small batches.

Buckwheat is technically not a cereal grain, but rather a fruit seed, related to rhubarb and sorrel, according to the Canadian grain commission. This makes it suitable for people who find they have a sensitivity to wheat. It seems that buckwheat is incredibly healthy for you! Buckwheat has lots vitamins, including magnesium.
