What is buckwheat?
Buckwheat seems to have taken roots in Asia, especially in China then it spread to Europe and Russia.
You might think of it as a cereal but actually, buckwheat is a fruit seed from the same family as rhubarb. It's gluten-free making it a good substitute for grains.
It's almost the same size as wheat but has a triangular shape. Buckwheat groats are sold either raw or roasted.
What are the health benefits of buckwheat?
- Buckwheat is high in minerals like Manganese, copper, magnesium, and phosphorus.
- It's a good source of good healthy proteins and it contains all amino acids.
- Buckwheat has beneficial effects on the prevention of diseases, it reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases,
- It regulates hypertension, inhibits tumors, reduces inflammation as well as controlling diabetes among other health benefits.
Are buckwheat pancakes healthy?
Absolutely, these buckwheat pancakes are gluten-free, vegan, & sugar-free using only whole ingredients.
The homemade applesauce has no sugar either. I sweetened these pancakes with raisins which have low Glycemic Index. Raisins also have antioxidants that may help reduce inflammation.
How to make buckwheat pancakes with homemade applesauce
- You need to make your homemade applesauce in advance, let's say a day before. Or use a store-bought.
- Blend 2 cups of buckwheat groats in your high-speed blender to get flour,
- Empty the blender and blend the raisins with the wet ingredients,
- In a large bowl mix both the wet and the dry ingredients to make a thick batter
- Cook your buckwheat pancakes. A nonsticking pan will work better for this recipe.
- If your pancakes turn black too fast, then you're cooking on high heat, reduce that heat!
Homemade applesauce troubleshooting
Different applesauce will yield different moisture to the pancakes. Homemade applesauce might be thicker than store-bought, so check on the thickness of the batter.
If you scoop it with difficulty then add some little milk, but don't make a running batter though.
Choice of milk for making buckwheat pancakes
I don't use dairy, so I made several times this buckwheat recipe with soy milk, mostly because it's the most affordable and because I am not fun of almond or rice milk found here because they add so many ingredients to thicken the milk.
However, today I made these pancakes recipe with coconut milk. The difference between the soy and coconut pancakes is so phenomenal. My daughter savored these buckwheat pancakes and couldn't stop complimenting how delicious they are.
Coconut milk yielded more fluffy and soft pancakes than soy milk. This is mostly because of the fat content in coconut milk.
How to store these buckwheat pancakes
If you have a large kitchen cloth, wrap your buckwheat pancakes and slide them in a freezing bag. You can leave them on your kitchen counter if you're eating them that very day.
Otherwise, store them in the fridge for 3-4 days, but note that the texture will not be the same as freshly made buckwheat pancakes.
That's it, you now have a fluffy buckwheat pancake with homemade applesauce recipe to add to your pancakes breakfast.
