Can’t get enough pancakes? There are so many versions but these buckwheat pancakes are naturally gluten-free because buckwheat is not actually a grain and does not contain gluten. Buckwheat is actually a seed that is high in fiber and protein. With added oats, you’ve got one dynamite heart-healthy pancake.
The one thing you don’t want your pancakes to be is dry and the addition of banana and applesauce helps do the trick in this delicious buckwheat pancake recipe.
Don’t be put off about making these from scratch. It really doesn’t take long and you can make a big batch of batter and enjoy these babies for a few days…You can even freeze these (make sure to separate each pancake with parchment to prevent them from sticking to one another) and store them in a freezer safe container or freezer bags and you have pancakes ready to warm and go anytime!
Top with banana, any kind of berry, a little maple syrup or applesauce, and a few walnuts or mixed nuts. Perfect morning pick me up, and you can feel good about serving your kids these, are they are packed with nutrition and flavor with no added fats or artificial sugars.
A little tip: If you don’t have applesauce on hand, you can just blend an apple (keeping the peel on, seeds removed) with a dash of cinnamon. Voila! Fresh applesauce to mix into your batter.
