Chocolate Buckwheat Pancakes


Chocolate Buckwheat Pancakes 1You know those days when you have ample amounts of time on your hands??
Yeah, me neither. 🙁
That’s why I focus on creating healthy, nutritious meals that can be made as quickly as possible.
Like these pancakes for example. No blending, processing or cutting required! Just chuck the ingredients together and cook on your stove top.

Sure, they may not be as quick as pouring yourself a bowl of cereal but, let’s face it.
