Blueberry Buckwheat Pancakes

(In an effort to eat a little less meat, I've set a goal to try one new recipe per week using a grain I don't commonly cook with.  See the original post here.)

Img_5152I was a little tired of salad-type "alterna-grain" recipes, so for something different this week we tried blueberry buckwheat pancakes.  The original plan was to make this recipe, but when I found a buckwheat pancake mix at the store, well, it won.

The buckwheat pancakes were a little coarser than plain pancakes--not quite as gritty as, say, cornbread--but I thought they had a ton more flavor.  I could easily be happy eating them from now on.  Especially with semi-homemade blueberry syrup.
