Savory Buckwheat Pancakes

Buckwheat contains all nine essential amino acids, helping to reduce those cravings mid-morning. To increase the protein content even more, serve with hummus.

Preparation time 5 min

  • 1 tsp Apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp Olive oil

  1. Prepare the batter
    Add all pancakes ingredients in a mixing bowl and combine until you get a thick batter.
  2. Cook the pancakes
    To cook the pancakes, pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto a nonstick pan over medium heat. Because the batter is quite thick and won’t spread on its own, use the back of a spoon (or cup) to flatten the pancake by doing circular motions. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes until firm.
  3. Flip the pancake and cook for another minute, until sightly golden and cooked through.
  4. To serve, top each pancake with your desired toppings. In my case, I loaded the pancakes up with hummus, tomatoes, spring onions, black olives and chili flakes.
