Blueberry Buckwheat Oatmeal Pancakes

Blueberries. Buckwheat. Oatmeal. Three of my favorite things! Sunday brunch feels incomplete without a fluffy pancake treat so I decided to try making some of my own using these ingredients. Result: My new favorite pancake recipe!! I like the idea of no white flour and the extra fiber from the oats, but in reality … they just taste good. The lemon adds a nice fresh and light flavor to the pancake that I really like. (I’m sure they’d taste good with some vanilla whey protein but I didn’t have any)  Enjoy!

  • 3/4 c buckwheat flour

  • 1 zest of small lemon
  • 1/2 c fresh blueberries
