Buckwheat pancakes

We had pancakes this morning so I thought I would share my recipe with you.  Its pretty simple and my kids love it.  I always make lots so the kids can have them as snacks though out the day or if we are heading out we can take the extra with us for snacks.

I Hope you enjoy them as much as we do.



Spelt flour (or flour of your choice)

Buckwheat flour

 Baking powder

Rapadura or coconut palm sugar

1 can of coconut cream

1 egg

Extra dash of water or milk if the mixture is too thick


Sift flours into a bowl and stir in the sugar.

Add 1 teaspoon of baking powder per cup of flour.

Add coconut cream and egg and mix together.

If the mixture is too thick just add a dash or 2 of water or milk.  It will be a bit stringy looking due to the buckwheat flour so don’t worry.

Heat oil for frying. I use either coconut oil or rice bran oil depending on whats around.  Fry until golden on each side.

Serve with honey and cream or what ever you like.

Buckwheat is a great source of easily digestible protein.  It is good for your digestion and if you are gluten or grain free then this is a good option.

Hope you enjoy!!
