It's a Pancake Kind of Day

Who says you can't have dessert for breakfast? Our healthy buckwheat blueberry pancakes are the perfect guilt-free indulgence to satisfy any sweet tooth. So start flipping those frying pans because you will definitely want to whip up a batch of this fluffy goodness.



Don't be fooled by its name because buckwheat is actually a fruit seed; it is not related to wheat and is totally gluten-free, making it the perfect substitute for celiacs. This little seed is packed full of magnesium, which dilates our blood vessels and lowers our blood pressure. It is also a rich source of high quality proteins that help to reduce levels of bad cholesterol and keep our hearts happy and healthy.


Eggs are packed with protein and provide us with the energy we need to fuel our day. They are a great source of vitamin D, which supports our overall health and is important for calcium absorption and strong bones. The presence of choline in the yolk is extremely beneficial and helps to keep our brains functioning at optimum health.


Blueberries are at the top of the list when it comes to antioxidant-rich foods. They are packed full of polyphenols, which protect our cells from free radical damage and disease. They are also an incredible source of vitamin C, which fortifies our immune system and stimulates collagen production, making blueberries one of nature's best skin remedies.


Cinnamon is full of iron, calcium, fibre and manganese. It is a strong antioxidant and is also anti-microbial, protecting our bodies from harmful bacteria, viruses and fungi. And that's not all the benefits that cinnamon wants to sprinkle us with. The spice's warming qualities improve circulation, which helps alleviate the pain and inflammation associated with arthritis.
