Banana Buckwheat Blueberry Pancakes

Total morning awesomeness brought to you by smashing two recipes together to get one spectacular outcome!  The first on was from Green Kitchen Stories – a delicious recipe that had the bananas, blueberries and coconut.  The second recipe came from my new favorite, Molly Wizenberg, and her book A Homemade Life – she had the straight up Buckwheat Pancakes.




These come out extremely moist – so moist that they still seem somewhat uncooked.  If this is not up your alley – by all means omit a banana but you really should give ’em a go no matter what!



Banana Buckwheat Blueberry Pancakes

makes 18 pancakes

In a large bowl wisk together:

2/3 Cup Buckwheat Flour

1 1/3 Cups All Purpose Flour

1 Cup Shredded Coconut

1 Tbsp Sugar

1 tsp Salt

1 tsp Baking Powder

Set aside.

In another container whisk to combine:

1 1/2 Cups Buttermilk

3/4 Cups Milk

2 Eggs

1/4 Cup Melted Butter

3 Bananas mashed

Optional to use a hand-held blender, instead of whisking, if you don’t want banana chunks in your pancakes.

Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients.

Stir just until combined – DO NOT over-mix – the batter will be thick.

Cook in non-stick pan with cooking spray or a little oil over medium heat.

Drop batter by 1/4 Cup spoonfuls – just before you are about to flip them sprinkle on some blueberries. This keeps your batter nice and clean and your blueberries from mucking up your pan too much.

About 2 Cups Fresh Blueberries will work

    Pancakes (when done well) are a marvel of combined tastes, textures and temperature. But I admit I always have trouble attaining perfection. It doesn’t look like you have that problem. GREG

    Now, I really don’t know……by looking at your awesome picture, should I feel full or more hungry?!

    Wow, banana AND blueberry – I’m drooling! Those look so good; saving this one.

    I haven’t used buckwheat yet. My pancakes usually come out flat and flavorless. I’m going to give these a try. My husband will be a happy man!

    Yum! I ran out of buckwheat. I need to get some so I can make these! Yum!

    OMG! I predict a top 9 here! You heard it from me first.

    These look like the lightest and fluffiest pancakes. I appreciate that they are made healthy with buckwheat flour.

    Pancakes are always more difficult than people think. These look perfect – the texture, the softness and I could drown myself in them. Happily.
