Fruited Buckwheat Pancakes

(Low-sodium)

For a good low-salt breakfast, serve 2 to 3 per person.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup nonfat milk

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tbsp canola oil

  • 1 cup buckwheat flour

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1 tbsp sugar

  • 1 cup chopped peaches, fresh, frozen, or canned and drained

Directions

Heat griddle to 400°F. You'll know it's hot enough if you sprinkle water on it and the drops "dance." In a bowl or large measuring cup, beat egg into milk. Add oil. Stir in buckwheat flour, baking powder, and sugar. Let sit until bubbles begin to rise. When griddle is hot, use a 1/4-cup measure to drop pancakes. Turn pancakes when they form bubbles and look dry around the edges, 2 to 3 minutes. Cook second side about 2 to 3 minutes. Top with fruit.
