Buckwheat Pancakes

5 Stars 4 Stars 3 Stars 2 Stars 1 Star
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes


  • 4 tbsp chia seeds soaked in 1/4 cup almond milk for 15 minutes
  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 2 bananas
  • 2 tsp maca powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2/3 cup almond milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • I top my pancakes with fresh berries, walnuts and date syrup


  1. Soak the chia seeds in almond milk.
  2. Add all ingredients and blend in a high speed blender. If you do not have a blender an electric mixer works just as well.
  3. Preheat a large pan or griddle with cooking spray, or I like to use a bit of coconut oil.
  4. Pour about 1/4 cup of the batter onto pan and allow to cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Flip and cook for another 2 – 3 minutes, until lightly browned. Repeat this step until all of the batter is used.
  5. I enjoy with date syrup or maple syrup, fresh berries and walnuts.
