Buckwheat Blueberry Pancakes

Written by Jason Ferruggia Topics: Nutrition


Every Sunday of the fall Jen and I start the day with a trip to the farmers market before the football pregame shows start (I’ve grown partial to the two hour pregame show on ESPN, as opposed the ones on Fox and CBS, the last few years). As soon as we get back football goes on and we get started on our one “junk food” cheat day of the week.

That doesn’t mean that we start eating processed or fake foods or a ton of sugar or anything like that. But we do splurge on some healthy treats like buckwheat blueberry pancakes. These are definitely one of our favorites and are far healthier than normal pancakes.

Below is a killer recipe for the best, healthiest blueberry pancakes around, put together by my friend, Michael DeSanti, taken from our upcoming plant based recipe guide.

A stack of these with a grass fed whey or Sun Warrior protein shake or some eggs would be the perfect breakfast for any hardgainer. The rest of us should save these for a weekend cheat meal.
