When we think about the ultimate brunch recipe, we think about golden pancakes drizzled with maple syrup. So delicious!

We wanted a new twist on the same old pancakes recipe and we decided to experiment with new and nutritious ingredients to help you to make a delicious and healthy breakfast that you can enjoy with no guilt.

The pancakes are made only with gluten-free buckwheat and oat pancake mix, eggs and almond milk. That’s it!

Both buckwheat and oat are nutritious alternatives to standard white flour. In fact:

  • Buckwheat is an excellent grain replacement to white flour, as it is higher in vitamins, minerals, and proteins.

  • Rolled oat is rich in cholesterol-lowering fibres and adds a rich nutty flavour.

  • Both buckwheat and oat have a low glycemic index meaning they provide a slow source of carbohydrates, helping you to feel satiated for longer.

Topped with maple syrup and fresh fruit, like blueberries and strawberries, these healthy buckwheat pancakes with oat make a satisfying meal low in calories - just 250kcal.

Now, heat a non-stick pan over medium heat and pour one ladle of the buckwheat pancake mix.

If needed, shake the pan to ensure the pancake has a round shape.

Then, sprinkle the uncooked side with blueberries and cook for 3-4 minutes or until you see tiny bubbles in the batter (1).

Loosen the edges with the help of a spatula and flip the pancake. Cook it for further 2 minutes or until both side are golden brown (2).

Repeat the steps above until you have used all the batter.

Foodacious Tips

  • To check if the whipped egg whites have the right consistency, tilt the bowl and if they stay put and firm, they are ready to use.

  • For vegan and egg-free pancakes, replace each egg with 1 tbsp of chia seeds (soaked in 3 tbsp of water) and 10g of coconut oil/vegetable oil.

  • As alternative gluten-free flour, you can use almond or coconut flour.
