Ingredients

  • 1 Cup of Buckwheat Flour
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons of Maple Syrup

Just in time for Pancake Tuesday! I’m a sucker for Buckwheat Pancakes so rather than post a different kind I decided to stick with my beloveds and just amp up the flavour. These are insane! There’s almond butter whizzed up in the mixture so each fluffy pancake has that amazing flavour and I drizzle it on top too. They’re literally the dream! Buckwheat flour is great for you, it doesn’t spike your blood sugar like regular flour, it’s great for your heart and it’s really satisfying. Add in all those good fats, Vitamin E and protein from the almonds and you’ve got the perfect start to the day.

Add all of the ingredients except for the almond milk and almond butter to your food processor and blend until combined.

Gradually pour in the almond milk while blending until you have a smooth, runny but thick batter.

Add in the almond butter and blend until combined.

Add the mixture to a jug. Heat some extra coconut oil in a pan on medium heat. Drizzle in enough mixture for your desired pancake size.

Cook until little bubbles form in the centre and then flip. Cook for another 30 seconds on this side until it’s golden brown and then plate. Continue with the other pancakes, stacking them on top of each other to keep them warm.

Serve with banana and a drizzle of almond butter and maple syrup.

    Recipe sounds great! I was just wondering if the 2 tbsp. melted coconut oil is added into the food processor with all ingredients or is the oil mentioned in the recipe, just the oil used to cook in the pan?

  2. DH says:

    Hello,
    If you do not have a food processor would the recipe work if you whisked all the ingredients together?

    • Indy Power says:

      Yes you could do it by hand but to avoid the buckwheat flour clumping I would whisk together all of the wet ingredients and then gradually add in the buckwheat flour while whisking. Hope it works well for you!x

  3. These look amazing! I love buckwheat pancakes with banana and maple syrup too!

    How many calories in total and per serving please? This looks really good.

    Hey 😊 Love your buckwheat pancake recipes and have always really enjoyed them when I’ve made them! Just wondering with this recipe, it doesn’t call for a teaspoon of vanilla like your Blueberry ones do.. Is this right? And if so, why? Thanks 😊

    • Indy Power says:

      Hi Sarah, you can add vanilla if you like, I sometimes do with these ones when I want it to taste a little sweeter but sometimes I leave it out, up to you!x
