After researching several buckwheat pancake recipes, I settled on these with a few straight out substitutions for the "less healthy" ingredients. These were surprisingly tasty, light, and fluffy. I thought they would need to be a bit sweeter, but with the blueberry syrup I made, they were perfect. They were a tad salty for my tastes, so next time I will reduce the salt to 1 tsp. I made the following substitutions: spelt flour for the the all-purpose, applesauce for the butter (all of it) and rapadura (evaporated cane juice) for the white sugar. I also let it sit for 30 min. I had hoped based on other reviews that they would not rise so well as I was trying to use our Star Wars pancake forms, unfortunately they rose considerably. My son and husband (who are hesitant to eat anything healthy) requested more while commenting several times how good these were. That deserves 5 stars.
