I grew up with "Pancake Tuesday" in school (and yes it's also Mardi Gras today, but I felt I should go for a breakfast food!) but they are not something I make often now. My dad always called them "sinkers", for the feeling you'd get after you eat them...but not these pancakes!
First off, they're gluten-free by using buckwheat flour, and I eliminated the sugar because you can get that kick back in with the fruit and maple syrup. You could also make them vegan (they're dairy free) by substituting the egg (with a flax egg and maybe some mashed banana). These are quick, healthier than their regular counterparts, and tasty!
Make Your Meal Even Healthier Tip:
Depending how dense you'd like to go with these pancakes, you can add some ground flax or chia seeds on them. And of course, have a heaping bowl of fruit on the side for balance and vitamin C!
