Soaking buckwheat groats overnight in cultured buttermilk, not only yields a light and fluffy pancake, but it also breaks down the phytic acid in the buckwheat allowing for better nutrient absorption. Buckwheat actually contains some of the lowest levels of phytic acid compared to other grains and pseudo-grains, and also contains high levels of phytase, the enzyme that breaks down phytic acid. Phytase "wakes up" when a grain is soaked. Serve these nutrient-dense pancakes with extra blueberries and a cup of herbal tea for an energizing breakfast.

Soak the buckwheat groats in buttermilk at least 8 hours prior to making this recipe.
