Buckwheat Pancakes

I know, I know, there are five thousand recipes for buckwheat pancakes, right?  It’s because they are simple, good for you, and taste great! I haven’t been using buckwheat for very long, but it’s everywhere and should be taken advantage of.  I discovered that I could make my own buckwheat flour in our coffee grinder.  This is great because whole buckwheat is cheaper than the flour version.  It is however annoying grinding your own every time you want flour.  I might try grinding a whole heap at once, then it will be ready to go.  Hmm it turns out being tight as a tick can be very time consuming.  Anyway if you haven’t tried them yet, give mine a go, they are light fluffy and sweet 🙂

Ingredients:

1 cup buckwheat flour

1 tsp gluten free baking powder

2 eggs

2 tbs coconut oil

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 cup honey (you can use less if you like)

1/4 cup coconut milk

How To Do It:

Preheat your pan and give it a light spray of your choice of oil.  Combine the flour and baking powder in a medium size bowl.  Meanwhile in another bowl whisk the eggs and combine all the other wet ingredients.  This may or may not involve melting down the coconut oil (depending on the heat in your kitchen) ;0.  Combine the wet ingredients to the dry and I like to whisk together just to be rid of all the lumps.  Now plop tablespoons of this lovely gooey mixture onto your pan.  You can do one or more at a time depending on how hungry the hoards are.  Fom this batch I get about eight medium sized pancakes. Enjoy:)
