Recipe: “B” Pancakes

Mmm pancakes!

When I was a kid growing up, we always had pancakes on Sundays. We’d get home from church and mom would whip up a gigantic batch. Sometimes they were banana (a favorite) or blueberry but most often it was fluffy buttermilk wonders. (Come to think of it, I should get mom to give me that recipe too! It’s a winner).

These pancakes have become a weekly tradition with my brothers and Alex requests them constantly. They are bursting with flavor. Bananas, blueberries, and buttermilk add great dimension but they are made using buckwheat flour for a unique twist.

Mom usually makes this with oat and buckwheat to keep it gluten-free. I was out of oat flour (oh the horror!) and subbed whole wheat flour. It was glorious.

Blueberry Banana Buttermilk Buckwheat Pancakes

Dry Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/2 cup oat flour (can sub whole wheat pastry)
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 2 t baking powder
  • 1/2 t salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 T grapeola oil (can sub another oil)
  • 1 large mashed banana
  • 1/2 pint blueberries

Combine your dry ingredients and wet ingredients in separate bowls. Make a small well in your dry ingredients and quickly stir in the wet ingredients until just blended (don’t overmix)


Heat your griddle or skillet to medium heat and grease.

Cook pancakes until edges are dry and bubbles appear and then burst in the batter. Flip


Pancake skillet trick: turn the heat down after the first batch to reduce the chances of batches being a bit too dark.


Beauties on my new griddle!


A single batch would be fine for Ben and me. I made a double batch and stored the rest in the fridge. They have been wonderful lunch additions this week! Top with your favorite stuff – like organic butter and real maple syrup. Otherwise, they’ve been great cold straight out of the fridge.
