First, let me fully admit that this barely constitutes a recipe. Though you can make delightful buckwheat pancakes from scratch, I am a big fan of this box mix. I actually like buckwheat pancakes more than white flour ones. They’re sweeter and more interesting. If you want to go from scratch, try adapting my Whole Wheat Waffles recipe. They work quite well as pancakes.

Bacon also goes with pancakes. Just saying. (Cherrywood smoked, drool.)

Strawberry Almond Buckwheat Pancakes Recipe (or Guidelines, as We Like to Say)

I just doctor the mix to suit my needs. Pancakes don’t really need to rise, they just need to not be too runny nor too thick, and to have some inherent sweetness.
