Pumpkin Buckwheat Pancakes

Pumpkin Buckwheat Pancakes

‘Tis the season! Right folks? I’m not going to lie, I was pretty stoked when I came up with this recipe. And they were super delicious too! Bonus!

Pumpkin is an awesome source of Vitamin A, C, and Potassium, as well as being one of the most omega 3 rich vegetables.

Buckwheat is high in manganese, tryptophan, magnesium, as well as having new research showing it’s benefits in diabetes management. It’s also rich in antioxidants protecting the body from free radical damage. And it’s gluten free!

Adding some nuts and seeds along with the eggs helps adds a nice protein punch to this recipe, making it ideal for breakfast (… or lunch… or dinner…)
