Chia and Banana Buckwheat Pancakes

Chia and Banana Buckwheat Pancakes

Buckwheat flour is a delicious alternative to regular white flour. With more fiber and protein, you can't go wrong with these pancakes. Not to mention they are oil-free too! The chia seeds add even more nutrients and give these pancakes a good texture. This recipe works great with oat flour, rye flour, and whole wheat! If you have a waffle iron, feel free to make this batter into waffles as well!

Ingredients: 

  • 1 1/4 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbs chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed (or 1/3 cup apple sauce)
  • 3 tbs maple syrup

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and chia seeds
  2. In a smaller bowl, mix the milk, vanilla, mashed banana, and maple syrup
  3. Make a well in the flour and pour the wet ingredients into the dry
  4. Mix well until all the lumps are gone
  5. Heat a nonstick pan on medium-low heat
  6. Scoop about a 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake and smooth out with the back of a spoon
  7. Cook on each side for about 3-5 minutes. When the pancakes are ready to flip, bubbles will form on the top
  8. Serve warm with maple syrup, chopped bananas, or any other fruit of choice!
