My favourite pancakes
I love making buckwheat pancakes for Annabelle and Sophia in the mornings. They are their new favourite thing to have after their eggs.
They are so easy to make and I make the batter the night before so I just need to cook the pancakes in the morning.
Buckwheat is amazing and if you have sensitivity to grains or proteins like gluten it is a great replacement to other grains.
Despite the name, buckwheat is not related to wheat, as it is not a grass. Instead, buckwheat is related to sorrel, knotweed, and rhubarb.
It is also high in nutrients so worth to introduce to your diet if you haven't already.
Here is the recipe for my pancakes:
200ml buckwheat flour
230 ml oats milk (you might need a little less or more depending on what type of milk you use)
1 large tbsp of good quality oil
A tiny pinch of salt
1 tsp of honey, syrup or sugar (optional)
Mix it all together until you have a nice smooth batter.
They are great as part of a breakfast, in a lunch box or instead of a fajita pancake.
Sometimes I blend in vegetables juices or Spinach into the batter to add fun colours and extra vegetables in to the girls diet.
