When I was a kid, my mom would try to make perfectly good food healthier by adding things like nuts, raisins, and wheat germ. We never liked it. I remember her making buckwheat pancakes, and I thought they tasted awful! Now I’m a mom and I try to make healthy food, too, but it has to taste good.
Until the other day, I hadn’t eaten buckwheat since I was a kid. I was curious to find out if it was as bad as I remembered, so I made a small batch of gluten-free buckwheat pancakes. Well, I don’t know if my mom had a bad recipe, or bad buckwheat, or if my tastes have just matured, but those pancakes were good! It wasn’t just a mom thing either, because the whole family liked them.
I looked up several different recipes and combined them into my own recipe.
