WHAT’S BUCKWHEAT FLOUR?
Buckwheat flour is made from ground buckwheat seed. Buckwheat flour has an earthy and slightly nutty flavour.
It is high in fibre, naturally gluten free and is lower in carbs than other regular flour.
They make an ideal breakfast, brunch or dessert! I topped mine with banana, almond butter and more maple syrup.

How to make Buckwheat Vegan Pancakes
Scroll down to the end of the post for the full recipe details.
1. Mix the wet ingredients
In a bowl mix together the wet ingredients – the almond milk, maple syrup and almond butter.
2. Add in dry
Add the flour into the bowl and mix until combined with no lumps.
3. Cooking buckwheat vegan pancakes
These easy buckwheat vegan pancakes are cooked in a warm non-stick pan.
This ensure the pancakes don’t stick to the pan, and it makes them easier to flip.
Warm your non-stick pan over a medium heat.
Instead of adding oil directly tho the pan, using a piece of absorbent paper that has been dipped in coconut oil, and rub onto the pan surface for even distribution.
Alternatively you can use an oil spray, you will need to spray the pan again for each pancake.
Add around 2 tablespoons of batter to your pan and cook the pancakes over low-medium heat until they start to bubble. Then gently flip and repeat until you have used up all your mixture.
Add your desired toppings and enjoy!!
Fluffy Vegan Buckwheat Pancakes Recipe Substitutions:
You can sub the buckwheat flour for other types of flour but may need to add more or less liquid depending on what flour you are using. Read this post to find out the best buckwheat flour substitutions.
You can sub the almond butter for any nut butter. Cashew butter would work well as it has a mild flavour. Peanut butter would work well and has a stronger flavour.
The almond milk can be subbed for any plant based milk or cows milk if you don’t need this recipe to be vegan.
If you want to make pancakes without milk then sub for water. This will result in a different texture though.
The maple syrup can be subbed with any liquid sweetener such as honey or agave.
