good morning buckwheat pancakes!




wake up, get outta bed,
grind the coffee beans and
what to make for Attie's breakfast?

this morning, like many, I pulled out my homemade buckwheat pancake mix and whipped up a batch. very nutritional -as buckwheat is so good for ya!
check it out. very high in fiber, iron and protien... among others.

I make a big recipe in an airtight container which is good in the shelf and lasts me a few months



then its easy, mix together an egg, 1 cup of milk, 2 tbsp oil and 1 1/2 cups of pancake mix.






fry up






eat up!




attie loves em...
especially with a little bit of agave nectar and pears!




The recipe roughly comes from the More-with-less mennonite cookbook.
A great book to have around based on eating healthy and cheap.
How to make things from scratch, grains, veggie and dry bean recipes...
just like it says
"..how to eat better and consume less of the world's limited food resources"




here is the large batch recipe:

I use mostly buckwheat, but also spelt, millet, etc... flours 
as well as a little organic white flour.
Add chia, flax seeds or hemp hearts...
and a blended banana or succunat for sugar.

yum and wholesome.

Here's a post about flour
