  • 3/4 cup Buckwheat flour (100 g)
  • 2/3 cup Non-dairy milk (140 g/160 ml)
  • 1 Banana
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla powder
  • Pinch of salt

Suggested toppings:

  • Fresh fruit
  • Maple syrup
  • Chocolate chips


  1. Add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Alternatively, use a tall bowl and a hand blender.
  2. Heat a large pan over medium heat. Once hot, pour about 2 tbsp of the batter into the pan. Alternatively, use a sauce spoon. Cook the pancakes for 2-4 minutes or until the top side is full of bobbles and the sides are slightly lifted from the pan. Flip the pancakes and cook for another 2-4 minutes or until golden and firm.
  3. Repeat for the rest of the batter. You should have 8-10 pancakes.
  4. Tip: cook 2-3 pancakes in one pan at a time if you can. To keep the pancakes warm either place them in the oven at 100° C (210° F) or cover with a thick kitchen towel or cloth.
  5. Once all the pancakes are done, top them with your favourite toppings and serve!
  6. Leftovers keep for a few days in the fridge. Simply reheat when you need them.
