Buckwheat Pancakes

These are my favorite pancakes, I really don't miss the pancakes made with grain and I feel so much better(buckwheat is not a grain despite it's name, ,You have probably heard of buckwheat flour, which is gluten-free. But you can also make your own buckwheat flour by grinding buckwheat grouts in a coffee grinder. Buckwheat is not a grain but a seed, from Raw Foods Made Simple). You can experiment with different toppings and it is really fun making characters with the pancakes. I like topping mine with homemade applesauce(I am working on posting an applesauce recipe), I am really in the fall spirit mode. Happy Cooking!


 Serves 6
Cook @ medium-low in a skillet

  • 2 C soaked buckwheat(I am trying out different kinds of buckwheat, that is why the kind in the picture has black specks, it's a darker buckwheat)
  • 1 C arrowroot
  • 1/4 C coconut flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 C milk or water
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1 t vanilla
  •  1 t salt
  • 1 T cinnamon

In a medium size bowl mix all the ingredient together. Make sure the pan is hot and add a dollop of coconut oil or butter to the pan. When oil is shimmering ladle pancake batter into the pan. Allow pancakes to cook almost all the way through before flipping. Add the topping of your choice and enjoy!
