Vegan Buckwheat Pancakes

Hello beautiful people 🙂

Since the beginning of lockdown, my family and I have adopted a lovely new tradition of ‘Sunday morning pancakes’! At the response of my family so far I’m not sure I’ll be allowed to stop this when lockdown lifts… Not sure I want to either 😉

Imagine: sweet aromas drifting up the stairs, a soft sizzle of the mixture hitting the pan, a river of maple syrup dripping down the stacks… Getting hungry again!

This one is definitely a family favourite – so so yummy! Plus, the ingredients are so nourishing – Buckwheat is a highly nutritious whole grain with so many health benefits, so you can get your pancake fix whilst lovin’ that body! Nourish your body and your soul 😉 Healthy eating really doesn’t have to be boring at all.

Ingredients for 2 servings:

  • 1 cup (or 120g) of buckwheat flour
  • 2 tbsp of sugar (I use coconut sugar)
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 cup (or about 240ml) of plant milk (eg. soya, almond, coconut, oat, etc)
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • A small bit of coconut oil to grease your pans

Method:

  1. Start by mixing the vinegar, milk and vanilla essence together and leave this for about 5 minutes – you will see that it will start to thicken slightly, like buttermilk! I have seen the best results of this using soya milk.
  2. Whilst waiting for the milk, add the dry ingredients to a bowl and mix.
  3. Then combine the wet and dry ingredients and your pancake mix is ready for cookin’!
  4. Grease your pans with the oil and plop a dollop of pancake mix in the centre, the size depends on your preference. The recipe should make about 4 large ones or 8 smaller ones.
  5. Build your beautiful stack, smother with your favourite toppings and enjoy!

Through the few months we have had during lockdown, we have unfortunately done little experimentation with the toppings, I do apologise. Though I can throughly recommend sliced bananas and maple syrup (mine, my dad’s and my brother’s favourite), sliced banana, greek yogurt and honey (not vegan but my mum’s favourite), or berry compote and coconut yogurt (my sister’s fave)! Very inventive, I know 😉

Other ideas for toppings could be:

  • Chocolate sauce and fruit (bananas and strawberries are bombbb with chocolate)
  • caramelised cinnamon apple
  • Different flavoured jams
  • Crushed nuts
  • Lemon and sugar

There are so many different combinations, the list could go on forever so there’s just a few more ideas 🙂 Get creative!! I’d love to know if anyone makes them, let me know if you do! 🙂

Got experimental today with my sister’s pancakes, putting blueberries in the mixture, so they cooked into the pancakes! There’s so many different variations you can do with this.

Have a good one everyone!
