  • 1 32 oz. bag Arrowhead Mills Organic Buckwheat Pancake and Waffle Mix
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest, finely chopped (per serving made)

Make pancake batter according to the instructions on the package.  For ‘Type A’ bodies, use the non-dairy version.  Once batter is completed, just incorporate the zest into the batter.   Make pancakes as directed. Garnish with sugared berries (recipe follows).


  • 2 cups lemon juice
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup dried mixed berries
  • ½ cup dried cherries
  • ½ cup dried apricots

In a small saucepan, simmer together lemon juice and sugar over medium-high heat until sugar has dissolved.  Add all the dried fruit.  Bring the mixture to a boil then reduce to a simmer for 5 minutes. Refrigerate uncovered to cool.  Serve over above pancakes instead of or in addition to syrup.  Enjoy.
