Banana buckwheat pancake recipe

There's nothing quite like pancakes for breakfast. Enjoy this wholesome recipe from Lesh Karan.

Ingredients

Dry

1⁄3 cup buckwheat flour

½ tsp baking powder

Wet

1 banana, mashed

2 pastured eggs

¼ cup natural yoghurt

¼ cup water or milk of choice

1 tsp pure vanilla essence

Other

coconut oil, for pan-frying

Method

1. In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients.
2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients.
3. Combine the wet with the dry mix, and whisk until well combined. Set the mixture aside for about 5 minutes.
4. Heat oil {enough to coat the pan base} in a fry pan over low–medium heat. {The oil should not be smoking hot ~ just hot enough so that the batter sizzles gently when added to the pan.}
5. Spoon 2–3 tablespoons of batter into the pan and spread it with the back of a spoon into a round pancake shape.
6. Fry the pancake for about 2 minutes each side on low–medium heat, or until cooked through.
7. Add more coconut oil between cooking each pancake, as needed.

Serving ideas

Serve with nut butter/tahini and honey/maple syrup, nutella butter, or yoghurt with poached or caramelised fruit.

Tips

To make more pancakes, add an extra egg, and double the other ingredients.
Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge and reheat to enjoy over the next few days for a quick breakfast.

Variations

Dairy-free– Replace the yoghurt with nut milk and a teaspoon of lemon juice or apple cider vinegar.
Savoury– Skip the banana, and you will have savoury pancakes! You can make smaller cakes, like pikelets, and serve with avocado and nuts or feta.
