Recipe: Banana & Buckwheat Pancakes

Serves 2. GF, NF

1 banana

1 cup buckwheat flour

1 tbsp baking powder

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 cup plant milk

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla

1 tbsp melted coconut oil

Place all ingredients into a jug blender or food processor and blend well.

Melt coconut oil in a frying pan on medium heat.

Using a ¼ cup measure per pancake, pour the mixture into the pan and fry the pancakes until small bubbles appear on the surface – about 3 minutes.

Flip the pancake and cook on the other side for 1 minute or so.

Serve immediately with any combination of Chia Berry Jam, blueberries, oat cream or caramelised bananas. Enjoy!

These pancakes are divine and perfect for families with children because they taste great and are fun to make. Buckwheat is actually a seed, not a grain and is not related to wheat (despite its name!). It’s gluten free and high in protein. Best of all, buckwheat is non-GMO – it’s never been genetically modified. Buckwheat has a low glycaemic index and is a good source of fibre, magnesium, manganese and copper.
