Spelt and Buckwheat Pancakes

These pancakes are easy because they only have a few ingredients. They’re quick, delish and fun for the kids to help you make!


If you want it a la gluten free, then simply replace the spelt flour with more buckwheat flour or rice flour.

The following recipe makes about 12 large pancakes or 20 smaller ones. It is enough for breakfast, and to pop into kids lunchboxes with a spread of raw honey and/or for savoury lunch pancakes.

You can cook up the whole batch or save the wet ingredients in the fridge to cook up later.

5 quick health benefits:

1) Butter – great source of Vitamin E, A and K, and is a source of quick energy
2) Eggs – great source of protein and vitamin B-12 required for normal brain function.
3) Buckwheat flour – a gluten free alternative to white flour. It is higher in essential vitamins and minerals, and high in fibre and protein.
4) Coconut sugar – is a wonderful alternative to white processed sugar. It has a low GI and is full of vitamins, minerals and amino acids (but it is still sugar, so use sparingly).
5) Almond Milk – great for those who are lactose intolerant. It is high in vitamins and contains protein and good fats.

    These were a hit with the whole family, thank you. I did add a little extra spelt flour as the mixture was a bit runny. Great start to our Sunday!
