I used almond milk and added lemon juice to make "buttermilk" and I also used smart balance light instead of butter. This did not mix at all with the orange rind and juice. That said, the flavor was there, just not the right consistency. The pancakes were a good change up since I normally wouldn't bother with orange (why, when I can have chocolate chips!?) but i'm glad I did b/c they were very good. The whole family enjoyed them.
Whole-Wheat, Buttermilk, and Orange Pancakes

Our whole family loved these...even our picky little boys. We normally favor pumpkin pancakes and oatmeal pancakes over buttermilk, but these are a good alternate to throw in the mix! Be forewarned: that orange butter only serves three people in normal land. :) You'll want to double it to match the amount of pancakes in this recipe. And I added just a touch of honey to it, as well.

This were a great change to my regular go to pancake recipe. The texture was fantastic. Really light and fluffy. My husband really praised them, and he is rather picky about his pancakes.
