Buckwheat, Almond & Banana Pancakes

Buckwheat flour is a good alternative for people avoiding gluten as it’s a wholegrain and high in fibre. These keep in the fridge and can be reheated in the toaster as a quick morning breakfast.

Ingredients – Makes around 8-10 pancakes

  • 1/2 cup of buckwheat flour
  • 1/2 cup ground almonds
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • few drops of vanilla extract
  • 2 mashed ripe bananas 
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 to 1 cup of milk of choice
  • coconut oil for frying


Mix dry ingredients in bowl, make a well in the middle and break in the 3 eggs. Slowly mix with wooden spoon.  Add the mashed banana and vanilla extract.

Add milk slowly until the batter is thick (not too runny). Melt 1/2 tsp coconut oil in a frying pan and ladle small amount into a hot pan. Don’t make these too big as they are hard to turn over.

Flip when bubbles start to form on the top side. Serve with fruit.
