Pancakes are a wonderful treat to have on an easy Sunday morning or as a special treat. They require more prep time than our more simple staple meals but DAMN they're worth it!

Find the recipe below..

The Pancakes:

2 cups buckwheat flour

1 ripe banana

1 cup hazelnut milk (or other plant-based milk alternative)

Serves: 2 portions

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 15 to 25 minutes


Mash 1 ripe banana and add to the hazelnut milk, stir until roughly combined. Slowly add this liquid mix to the buckwheat flour until a thick but runny mix is created.

Pour the mix, in small circles, onto a non-sick pan and cook at a medium heat until starting to brown on the underside. Flip the pancakes using a spatular and cook on the other side until also brown.

These will need to be done in small batches as only a few will fit in one pan. Each batch should take approximately 5 minutes.

Did you know?!..

The banana in this recipe acts like egg does in regular pancakes. It assists the flour and milk to stick together! Banana can be used as an egg replacement in other treats such as cakes, buns and even flapjacks!
