Comments on this Recipe

I have made buckwheat pancakes with coconut oil and coconut milk and they came out great. :D

I sometimes make these pancakes with whole wheat flour replacing buckwheat (I know, you lose some of the nutrients, but the fam prefers it!), and applesauce mixed with a little baking soda to replace the powdered egg replacer. They're delicious and healthy, as long as you watch the amount of syrup on them.

Thank you VT for all of your great information on everything I could ask about becoming a vegetarian/vegan and changing my life as a diabetic for the better.I order VT magazines tht I receive through out the year along with other helpful cooking magazines. So thank you for all the great recipes,information, and food substitutes. I know now that my sister and I are onour way to a healthier us. Heres to loosing it with VT for a better me. xoxo

Yes these are good with just wheat and oat flours as well, your really don't need the egg replacer,the banana does the trick anyway.
