Buckwheat flour infuses these hearty pancakes with extra protein, fiber and nutrients. If you find buckwheat's earthy flavor too strong on its own, replace half of it with another gluten-free flour, such as brown rice or quinoa. This recipe can be also be made egg-free.

Prep Time: 10 Min
Cook Time: 10 Min
Ready In: 20 Min

Servings: 2 to 3

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1/4  cup dark maple syrup or agave syrup
  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg (see Note)
  • 2/3 cup + 1 tablespoon unflavored hemp milk or milk of choice

Directions:

For the Blueberry Sauce

To make blueberry sauce, whirl blueberries and maple syrup together in a blender until combined but still slightly chunky.

For the Pancakes

  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, banana, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and egg. Stir in milk. Add more milk if needed to reach desired consistency.
  2. Lighty grease a nonstick skillet and heat over medium heat. Drop batter, 1⁄3 cup at a time, onto the skillet and cook 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until nicely browned. Serve pancakes topped with blueberry sauce.
  3. Note: For egg-free pancakes, omit 1 egg. Combine 1 tablespoon flax meal with 3 tablespoons hot water. Let sit 5 minutes until slightly thickened. Then add to recipe in place of 1 egg.
