Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free Buckwheat Cocoa Pancakes
We are only 2 days away from Pancake Tuesday (or Shrove Tuesday)! Last year I took on the challenge to raise money for mental awareness Ireland by baking over a hundred pancakes for my colleagues at work and I of course also wrote up a recipe for my thin pancakes or crêpes. I wanted to do something different this year and created a recipe for gluten-free, dairy free buckwheat cocoa pancakes. There is an egg in it though so it’s not vegan, but I have read that you can replace the egg with 1/3 mashed banana if you want to make it vegan, but I haven’t tried this myself yet.
I also didn’t add any sugar into the batter, as I was using very sweet toppings already, but if you want your pancakes to have some extra flavour then you can of course add a sweetener, as mentioned in the recipe below as well.
The recipe itself is super easy and it takes no time at all to make as we’re not letting the mixture rest, we just stir everything together and put it in our pancake pan. The lovely thing about these pancakes is that they will start to show little bubbles when it’s time to flip them over, so you can’t even flip them too soon and break them.
It was actually my first time using buckwheat flour and I’m quite liking it so far. No idea yet what else I’ll use it for so if anyone has any suggestions, do let me know in the comments below!
|100g buckwheat flour|
