Buckwheat-Flaxseed Blueberry Pancakes

Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, high-fiber flaxseeds offer nutrient benefits only when ground (whole flaxseeds pass right through), so opt for the most finely ground flaxseeds you can find, or grind your own in a coffee grinder. If your gluten-free flour mix already contains baking powder and baking soda, omit them from the recipe. 

  1. For toppings: Quarter strawberries, then stir in 1 tablespoon agave nectar. Set aside. Stir 1 tablespoon agave nectar and orange zest into yogurt. Cover and refrigerate.
  2. For pancakes: Sift dry ingredients together into a medium mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together agave, eggs, oil, and buttermilk. Whisk wet mixture into dry ingredients until just incorporated. Do not overmix.
  3. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Brush lightly with vegetable oil, then drop about 1/4 cup batter onto skillet. Cover with blueberries (no need to thaw if frozen). Fill skillet with as many pancakes as will fit, leaving a small space between. Cook until set around edges, 2–3 minutes. Flip and cook for another 1–2 minutes, until cooked through. Top each pancake with a dollop of yogurt and a scoop of strawberries.
