Once upon a time, thinking of eating pancakes that were gluten-free, vegan, milk-free, and sugar-free was like daydreaming lol! But things have moved us to new adventures and gluten-free buckwheat groats pancakes are like a signature of that move…
I salute the technology that has simplified life for us, without the internet we wouldn't be communicating here, with me sharing with you this simple yet very healthy buckwheat pancakes recipe. Without a good blender, my buckwheat groats pancakes would still be a daydream.
(I just had an idea! I hope it will work, a new recipe is working in my mind right now) will keep you posted…
These buckwheat pancakes are so easy to make, you don't need store-bought flour, which I used to find quite bitter!
All you need is to soak your buckwheat groats for at least 30 mins, you can also soak them overnight. You rinse your groats before soaking them.
Soaked buckwheat groats become glutinous, you don't need to rinse them again, blend them in a high-speed blender with the soaking water.
I always prefer banana plantains to yellow bananas when making my gluten-free pancakes, but you can go ahead and use bananas if you can't put your hands on plantains.
You can add milk of your choice, coconut milk adds that nutty flavor and makes the buckwheat pancakes fluffy and delicious.
I just wanted this buckwheat pancakes recipe to be easy and simple, with very few and budget-friendly ingredients, from here you can twist it to your liking.
I used cinnamon to spice up these buckwheat pancakes, I love freshly ground cinnamon, it's mind-blowing! But in this recipe, I wanted to try something new. Soaking the cinnamon stick in with the buckwheat groats!
Break the cinnamon stick, you can use a hammer to do this, then add the chunks of cinnamon stick in the soaking buckwheat groat especially when soaking overnight.
This way the cinnamon will infuse into buckwheat groats, these buckwheat pancakes were so sweet.
Enrich your morning breakfast with this buckwheat pancakes recipe.
While you can enjoy these gluten-free buckwheat pancakes on their own, you can top them with any fruits of your choice, I made you some rhubarb chutney. I'll be posting the recipe soon…
