I’ve always been a breakfast person. The moment I wake up I can’t wait to eat! It sets me up for the day, gives me energy and I really do feel t’s the best meal of the day.
This is actually an old family recipe, my mum used to make these for me on the weekends or when I needed cheering up. I remember the sweet smell of pancakes filling up the house and making me feel all warm and fuzzy.
It’s one of those recipe’s I’ve then not really prepared at my own home, and always looked forward to mum making them. But when I got sick and found out my stomach and digestion was the problem, (check out full story here…..) my mum suggested introducing buckwheat flour back into my diet on a regular basis. I found that gluten and wheat was not agreeing with me at all, and really struggled finding things to eat for breakfast or treats to cook up since I had to cut out foods like; processed sugar, dairy and gluten.
Once my mum reminded me of these beauties, I started to experiment. I’d played around with the ingredients and finally got it spot on. These buckwheat flour based pancakes are so delicious, fluffy, filling and not to mention good for you! They are also super easy and quick to make and require only a handful of ingredients.
They are my ‘go to’ pancakes for the weekend, and I love topping them with fresh berries or making berry compote out of frozen berries, honey, nut butter and coconut flakes. But really, your options are endless and you can cover them with anything yummy that takes your fancy!
Check out the recipe below, and enjoy 🙂
Thank you, Lo xx
1 cup buckwheat flour
1tsp baking powder
1tsp of natural vanilla paste or extract
3/4 cup almond milk (or other dairy-free milk of your choice)
Few tbsp of coconut oil
In a big bowl, combine the flour and eggs first and then slowly pour in the milk a little bit at a time until you have a smooth consistent batter.
Add the baking powder, vanilla and flaxseeds. Mix together well, and the batter should be of a thick constancy.
Put a tbsp of coconut oil in a frying pan on a medium heat and spread it across the pan. Pour in around 2tbsps of the batter in the pan and cook for a few mins till they become nice and brown either side. Continue doing so till the whole pancake mix is cooked and cover your chosen toppings!
