Hello My Friends!
Do you love pancakes? I love pancakes!
However, I have been having a hard time searching a pancake recipe that caters to my current dietary requirements, namely:
Particularly, I was also hoping to make it nutritious – ideally one that is buckwheat-based instead of using rice flour, tapioca starches & potato starches.
After much experimentation and substitution of several recipes, today I finally came down with one I am fully satisfied with. For me, I only eat 3 pancakes at a time. So for the left-overs, I use aluminum foil to wrap them individually, and freeze them. The next time I am craving pancakes, I’ll just unwrap them, and microwave them separated, then stack them when they are warm!
Try out the recipe and let me know what you think, leave a comment or tag me @sensitiveskinlifestyle on Instagram!
P. S. This post is not sponsored. I bought all the ingredients myself.
- 1/2 cup buckwheat flour (white or dark is fine; I used dark)
- 1.5 teaspoons baking powder
- Unsweetened Hemp Mylk (can substitute with milk/mylk of your choice)
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened apple sauce
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon avocado oil
- 1 tablespoon white distilled vinegar
- 1/8 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1 tablespoon avocado oil (for the pan making the pancakes)
- Add buckwheat flour & baking powder into a bowl. Mix.
- Add about 1/4 cup mylk into the dry mixture.
- Add apple sauce onto the mylk. Mix slightly.
- Keep adding mylk, until you reach a pancake-like consistency
- Add the avocado oil and apple cider vinegar into the batter and mix well.
- Place a large non-stick frypan on the stove, above medium-heat. I used an electric stove, so you may want to adjust accordingly if you use a griddle or gas/induction stove.
- Add oil and let it heat up
- Scoop a 1/4 cup of the batter onto the fry pan.
- Let the pancake cook until you see the bottom part darkens as shown in the picture. Then flip. Note: Buckwheat pancakes don’t bubble up like regular pancakes.
- Cook the other side until golden brown.
- Serve hot with maple syrup and, or fruits of your choice!
