blueberry banana buckwheat pancakes

A little-known fact to people who don’t have any issues with wheat or gluten: despite the name, buckwheat is not related to wheat, and is gluten-free! I’ve tried out a bunch of different pancake recipes, and this one is one of my favorites. The recipe makes enough hearty pancakes for two regular people or one pancake monster like me.

Here’s my usual adaption to make blueberry banana buckwheat pancakes:

  • 2/3 cup buckwheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon flax meal
  • 1 very ripe banana (mashed)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons oil
  • 2/3 cup almond milk (i like my pancakes fat, so add more if you want yours to be thinner)
  • 1/4 cup blueberries

While your pan heats up on the stove, mix all the ingredients together (adding the blueberries to the batter last). Scoop batter onto hot pan, cook, flip, cook, and eat!
