These pancakes are still fluffy like all wheat pancakes, the only thing different is their color. The cinnamon adds a nice touch that fits very well with maple syrup or pumpkin butter. These would probably also be very good with the addition of a chopped apple into the batter. From Cooking Light magazine

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl combine the whole wheat flour, buckwheat flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  2. In a smaller bowl, slightly beat egg, whisk in milk, and oil.
  3. Add egg mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until mixed.
  4. Spoon about 1/4 cup of batter onto a greased hot skillet or griddle; turn pancakes when tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked.
  5. Makes about 10 small pancakes.

I make these too only the recipe I have calls for all-purpose flour and regular milk (your version is healthier). I think the flavors are great. Thank you so much for posting this!

Quite good, a little thin - I thought that the cinnamon went very well with the buckwheat flavor but wasn't quite strong enough to show up over the flavor of the buckwheat. Not bad at all.
