Gluten Free, Sugar Free & Vegan pancakes made with buckwheat flour, bananas and dairy free milk.
Reasons to make these pancakes
These pancakes are super healthy. They are gluten – free, low in sugar, suitable for vegan diets.
Also suitable for low FODMAP diet, where the only tricky ingredient is the banana. If you know that you are sensitive to the sugars in banana, either use un-ripen banana before they go brown or use only 1/2 banana and add an egg to the mixture (if you are non-vegan).
Can be made in advance, frozen and then defrosted when you need them.
Serve on their own with some extra blueberries. If you want to add a little bit of sweetness to your pancakes you can always drizzle them with some honey, simple brown sugar syrup or earl grey sugar syrup or agave syrup.

Top tips for making buckwheat & banana pancakes
Be prepared to adjust the thickness of your pancake batter before you start frying your pancakes. Buckwheat flour is thicker than normal flour and soaks up more water.
When frying your pancakes watch out for the bubbles forming in the batter and the colour changing slightly. Flip over and carry on frying on the other side. Buckwheat flour is slightly darker than other flours, so the batter can look like it’s done when it needs a little more.
