Low Fat Buckwheat Pancakes

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by spatchcock

This recipe has a bit of a convoluted history! It was originally posted by a poster who left, and then was put up for "adoption." Since I'd made it before and loved it, I took it on as my own! I did change a few things when I made it; I had some apples to use up, so I cored nd sliced them and when I poured the batter on the griddle, I arranged the apple slices decoratively on top. That way, when I flipped the pancake, the slices got cooked into the pancake. It was yummy and added even more fiber and vitamins! Anyway, here's the original poster's description: Healthy pancakes to get you going in the morning. They aren't very sweet, so add some sugar or honey if you like your pancakes sweet. I like to eat these topped with plain yogurt and a bit of syrup. Freezes well.

"Hooray" for a recipe without that darn white flour! I've been looking for recipes using more healthful whole wheat. This is the perfect recipe for my husband, who is on a diet, but just loves his carbs! He wolfed these down!! Very easy to throw together in the morning and I have some in the freezer for an easy breakfast another day! I did not add cinnamon but did add maybe 1/4 cup instant nonfat dry milk powder to the mix and a bit more water. They turned out perfectly. Thanks, Cornelia, for a breakfast we will be having often.
