Buckwheat Pancakes

I grew up eating a lot of buckwheat as a kid. It used to be a staple for children probably because it was so cheap and easily available. My mother and grandmother used to make buckwheat porridge for my cousins and I, or serve it as a side with our version of Goulash, a rich slow cooked beef stew. Buckwheat flour is a wonderful way of enjoying the benefits of buckwheat in your baking.

My family loves pancakes. It's taken a while to create a healthy recipe that is light, fluffy and sweet that we can all enjoy. Trust me there have been some serious fails with various other flours. This one seems to be a winner for everyone however.

Prep time Cook time Total time


    1 cup buckwheat flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp soda bicarbonate
    1 tbs rice malt syrup
    pinch of salt
    1 cup milk of your choice
    1/4 cup yoghurt of your choice
    1 tbs coconut oil, melted
    1 large free range egg
    ½ teaspoon pure vanilla bean paste
    Butter or coconut oil for greasing your pan


      1. Mix all dry in ingredients in a medium bowl. 
      2. In a separate bowl beat the egg and add vanilla paste.
      3. Add the milk, yoghurt, coconut oil and egg mixture to the dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
      4. Pre-heat and grease a medium sized bad over medium heat.
      5. Pour the batter in 1/4 cup servings onto your pan and cook for 2 - 3 minutes per side until small bubbles form on the surface. Flip and cook on the opposite sides for 1 - 2 minutes, or until golden.
      6. Repeat the process with the remaining batter, brushing the pan with a little more butter between each one.Serve immediately with a little yoghurt and berries or other toppings of your choice.

      You can't go wrong with a good pancake for breakfast. Finding a recipe that is healthy and tastes good can be a little tricky however. I've tried almond meal and find it burns too quickly, I've tried coconut flour and it's just that little bit too dry. Buckwheat or even amaranth flour however both hold up under pressure, and with a touch of yoghurt could even pass for the real deal. This recipe is packed with protein, which will keep you fuller for longer, without the bloat. Enjoy! SaveSaveSaveSaveSave
