Buckwheat is Part of Our Gang

Have I ever mentioned my buckwheat pancakes?

Since we've been trying to eat better, I've been adding other foods to our diet.  One of those is buckwheat, which is good for you, but not so easy to eat or cook with.  If you use too much in baked goods, they end up gritty and kinda gross. I know this first hand.

One of my earlier experiments with buckwheat were these muffins that were wet and gritty and disgusting, and ended up covered in mold within a day. It was a great excuse to toss them, cause no one wanted to eat them anyway.

But after time, I've managed to come up with some recipes that we'll eat. Some we even like. And this is one of them.  You can add blueberries to these for even more yummy.
