Breakfast is one of my favorite meals. I can have it any time of the day. Morning preferred, brunch or lunch would be fine as well, and I LOVE breakfast for dinner! In fact, our neighbors had us over for dinner the other night and we had the most delicious breakfast. Have you ever had buckwheat pancakes? They were delicious and healthy too! I’ll have to snag the recipe for you, I’d definitely make them again! If I had to chose a favorite breakfast item, I don’t think I could narrow it down. Pancakes definitely rank at the top of the list. I know I’ve said it before but my FAVORITE pancakes are my dads. He makes the best!
Do you ever have leftover buttermilk hanging around in the fridge and you aren’t sure what to do with it? You know you want to use it before it goes bad, but don’t have a recipe in mind? That’s exactly where these pancakes were created from. I looked up recipes on my site and saw my Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes and was eager to try a whole wheat version. The result? They are nearly as wonderful as the original! With a healthy twist… I could feel good about reaching for the extra pancake!
