Honey Whole/Buck Wheat Chia Seed Pancakes

Aloha all! I hope everyone is doing well. 🙂

I found a really great recipe for whole wheat pancakes, over at a blog titled “Peanut Butter Fingers” written by Julie Fagan, that I wanted to share with you all today. I went for the workout that she had listed (which is really awesome and I will also try and re blog as well) and stumbled upon the recipe while there. I adapted the recipe to add in buck wheat opposed to oatmeal and I used almond milk instead of regular milk and cinnamon and nutmeg instead of pumpkin spice, all in all the recipe turned out awesome! The whole family loved the pancakes, and they even froze well which allowed me to save some for breakfast for the fam in the mornings during the week.

I hope you guys are able to give these a try and I hope your family ends up loving them as much as mine did.

Enjoy! 🙂
