Oat/Buckwheat Pancakes.

These pancakes are super fluffy and incredibly tasty! I combined the two flours after eating them both separately. They are very filling and healthful! In one cup of buckwheat and oats there is a whole serving of more than 20g of protein. This is a great after workout meal or pre snowshoe hike. 

1 cup ground rolled oats
1 cup ground buckwheat groats
2 T. Flax seed ground
2 cups butter milk ( 1 cup yogurt and 1 cup milk)
1 t. Baking soda
2 t. Baking powder
1/2 t. Salt
2 T. Maple syrup  
 1 t. Vanilla
1/2 t. cinnamon and fresh grated nutmeg
Coconut oil for griddle or pan
Maple syrup for topping
(optional) 1/2 cup of granola (homemade) or I also like Nature Path- pumpkin flax granola

Mix dry ingredients and then add wet ingredients. Turn griddle on to medium heat. Use 1/3 cup scoop for pancakes on griddle. Sprinkle granola on the top of each pancake. Flip once edges turn golden brown.

Other topping ideas- 
Sliced banana, slivered almonds and maple syrup.
Sliced peaches, silvered almonds and honey.

Makes 12-15 pancakes
