Buckwheat & Oat Pancakes

We love pancakes, who doesn't right? What's better than a stack of warm, delicious pancakes with your favourite toppings? I'll tell you what; pancakes that are made with nutritious ingredients and keep you full for ages!


So, these are gluten free (unless you can't eat oats) and very filling. You'll only need 2 per person depending on the size you make them. If you can't eat oats, sub them for almond meal.


I use a thermomix, but you can use a regular food processor.


Here's the recipe:

Serves 2 - 4 people


Ingredients


  • 200g organic buckwheat grouts

  • 200g organic rolled oats or almond meal (if you're making almond meal you'll need 100g almonds)

  • 1 tsp organic cinnamon

  • 1 tsp baking powder (GF if required)

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 3/4 cups soy milk (or you favourite milk)

  • 1 heaped tbsp organic hemp seeds

  • 1 1/2 cup frozen blueberries, defrosted

  • 1/4 cup rice or maple syrup

  • Any other topping you like. Bananas and coconut yogurt are delicious


Method


  • Weigh the buckwheat and oats or almonds in your thermomix bowl

  • Mill for 10 seconds on speed 10 until you have flour

  • Add baking powder & cinnamon and mix for 5 seconds on speed 4

  • Add the milk and vanilla. Blend for 15 seconds on speed 5. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix again if needed

  • Heat an iron skillet on low (I don't use oil but you can if you wish)

  • Pour 1/4 cup portions of the mixture into the pan. Tilt the pan to spread it out a little. (You'll need to do one at a time depending on the size of you pan)

  • Cook for approximately 1 minute until bubbles start to form and then gently flip the pancake over to cook the other side

  • Keep the cooked pancakes on a plate covered with a clean towel while you make the rest

  • Serve with your toppings and drizzle with rice syrup


Notes:


  • If you want a sweeter mixture add some coconut sugar when you mill the grouts or rice syrup when you add the milk

  • The mixture will be thicker than when you use plain flour. Buckwheat doesn't need a binder such as flax or chia egg. You can add a little more milk if you like but be careful to not thin it out too much.

  • These make great lunchbox fillers. Just make them bite size when cooking them. You can even add chocolate chips for fun.
