Moody Berry Buckwheat Pancakes

Hi all,

These blackberry & blueberry pancakes are just to thing for any and all lazy, romantic, delicious weekend brunching.  Anyone who has looked through my other recipes will be unsurprised at seeing yet another pancake recipe this week.  I do have a slight love affair with them in any and nearly all flavors.  (To name my favorites: Matcha and Raspberry, Pumpkin Oat, Paleo Carrot Banana, and finally, Pumpkin Pie pancakes).

Now adding onto the list of my favorites, these dark berried pancakes are lightly sweet, juicy, moist and totally tasty.  They are grain-free, lactose-free and sugar-free.  And yet taste, bite for bite, like the pancakes you would find in any high quality restaurant except that these are awesome for your health!

Did you know that buckwheat is actually a fruit seed?  Its not a grain at all, instead coming from the same family as rhubarb.  And, did you further know that buckwheat is amazing for your body!?!  Good for cardiovascular system, helps control blood sugar and may lower ones risk of diabetes, helps in preventing gallstones, and has health promoting potential that is equal to or even higher than that of some fruits and vegetables.  How cool is that?

What the heck is Whole30?  Some of you might be wondering.  I was asking myself the same question about two weeks ago.  Essentially, its a one-month detox for your body.  Here is a short article that describes in further detail what, exactly, is Whole30 and why on earth might you consider giving it a try.

Either way though, these pancakes are worth making.  For the health benefits, short list of ingredients and yummy taste.

Basically, these pancakes are the bomb.  They cover all sorts of special diet specifications, are easy to make and totally tasty.  Enjoy!
