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
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
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
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.
