So yummy, and healthy too!

Despite the name, buckwheat is not wheat, it is actually  a pseudocereal, in the same category as amaranth and quinoa, and a great way for non-gluten eaters to get fiber and whole grain into our diet.

This recipe is a great alternative to regular buttermilk pancakes and gives it a healthy spin and an earthy flavor. (more…)
