These sound good for a leisurely Sunday morning breakfast. I think I'd throw some blueberries in the batter to make them taste even better.
Buckwheat Pancakes (Phase 2)
Buckwheat is often planted by beekeepers because the flower is very high in nectar. The popularity of buckwheat pancakes has declined since the 1950s, but there’s no reason not to try them today!
Makes 12 pancakes (3 pancakes per serving)
1 cup buckwheat flour
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 cups water
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a medium bowl, thoroughly combine the buckwheat flour, whole-wheat flour, egg, and baking powder, mixing until evenly blended. Add the water, applesauce, and vanilla extract, and stir until only small lumps remain.
Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Working in batches, pour the batter into the pan and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the bottom is browned. Turn and cook for 1 to 2 minutes longer, or until golden brown. Remove to a plate and keep warm. Repeat to make a total of 12 pancakes.

I make regular Bisquick pancakes, but I add orange juice and cinnamon to the batter to liven it up... works great, and goes with most syrups.
My anniversary is coming up so I might have to use this to make my wife's annual breakfast in bed. I love the idea of using applesauce as part of the liquid.

Best fruits to add to the batter are raspberries, strawberries and bananas, which caramelize nicely, but make sure that you use a nonstick spray, even on nonstick pans, as they do tend to leave a bit of residue that causes the next batch to stick.

A touch off topic but I add 2-3 T to scrambled eggs (for 6 eggs) when I'm beating them. Makes for a little bit of fluff in the eggs. I also bought some blueberry pancake mix and that was pretty good too.
