- 1 cup buckwheat flour
- 1/4 cup ground flax seed
- 1/4 cup hemp protein
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1 banana
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1/2 cup blueberries
- 1/2 cup buckwheat grouts, sprouted or cooked
In a medium sized bowl, mix together your buckwheat flour, ground flax seed, hemp protein, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir well.
Next, grab your food processor and blend together the banana and water while slowly adding dry ingredients from your mixing bowl. Process until the mixture is nice and smooth. By hand, stir in the blueberries and buckwheat grouts.
Next is the cooking part! Lightly oil a frying pan with coconut oil and preheat to medium heat. Pour pancake batter into frying pan creating circular blobs and cook for roughly 5 minutes or until bubbles begin to appear. Flip and allow pancakes to cook for another 5 minutes.
*As these pancakes contain essential fatty acids that are destroyed at high heat, we cook them at a lower temperature than traditional pancakes so they take a bit longer to cook.*
