Buckwheat Cinnamon Pancakes

All you need is:

For Pancakes (2-3 people)

1 glass buckwheat flour (or 1/2 buckwheat and 1/2 flour of choice)

1 tsp cinnamon 

1 tsp xanthan gum (optional)

1 tsp baking soda

Pinch of salt

1 1/4 glass unsweetened soya or any other plant based milk

2 tbsp brown rice malt syrup 

2 tbsp tahini 

3 tbsp aquafaba 

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (optional)

Coconut oil for frying

Topping Suggestion

1 Banana

1 tbsp or more tahini

1 tbsp or more brown rice malt syrup

1 tsp or more sesame seeds

1 tbsp or more pumpkin seeds

Pinch of cinnamon

Here’s what you do:


Choose medium size non stick frying pan and set aside.

Combine all dry ingredients (flour, cinnamon, xanthan gum, baking soda and salt) in a medium size mixing bowl. Stir well.

Add the rest, starting with plant based milk of your choice, syrup, tahini, aquafaba and vanilla.

Preheat the pan to medium heat, add a little bit of oil and once the pan is hot enough pour 3 big spoons of prepared dough separately, one after another creating 3 pancakes in your pan. Fry one side and gently turn around once it rose using flat spatula. Fry the other side. When both sides are golden brown, remove it from the pan and add dough for three more pancakes, continue until you finish the dough.

Once all pancakes are ready, stack 3-4 per person on a plate, top with my suggested precut bananas, tahini, brown rice syrup and sprinkle with some sesame seeds and pumpkin seeds, dust it with cinnamon. This is just a suggestion if you want to go for blueberries and peanut butter or strawberries and plant based nutella, go for it. You can even prepare some of your own prior making these pancakes. Click on recipes below:

*Note. I own you explanation on two things here, first one - aquafaba. It's an amazing egg replacer, which is healthy too. Aquafaba is a leftover water from canned chickpeas. I know it sounds ridiculous, but it works and it's amazing. 3 tbsp of aquafaba equals 1 large egg.

Another thing in this recipe is xanthan gum, I know it sounds like one of those bad things in processed food labels, but apparently there are no evidence of anything harmful about it. Though if you don't trust me, just skip it. The only thing what xanthan gum does is binds non-gluten flour, so it becomes less crumbly. But that's it. I haven't done a proper research on it yet, so I cannot assure you 100% that is healthy enough. So decision is in your hands.

Enjoy your pancakes!!!
