Equipment

  • Bowl
  • Frying pan

Ingredients

Cinnamon Buckwheat Groats

  • 2 cups raw buckwheat groats soaked overnight
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk
  • 2 tablespoons liquid sweetener raw honey, stevia or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup hemp seeds
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Easy Gluten-Free Buckwheat Pancakes

  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 ¼ cups non-dairy milk
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Coconut oil to pan fry

Instructions

Cinnamon Buckwheat Groats

  • Drain and rinse your soaked buckwheat groats and place them in a bowl.
  • Warm the non-dairy milk on the stove for about 3 minutes.
  • Pour the milk over the buckwheat groats. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Serve immediately.
  • Add bananas, berries, or other fresh fruit, if desired.

Easy Gluten-Free Buckwheat Pancakes

  • Add the buckwheat flour, baking soda, baking powder and sea salt to a large mixing bowl. Mix well. Next, add the non-dairy milk, egg and vanilla extract to the same bowl and mix well. Allow the mixture to sit for at least 5 minutes while preparing the frying pan.
  • Place a frying pan over medium heat and add about 1 teaspoon of coconut oil to the center of the pan.
  • Once the coconut oil melts, pour roughly ¼ cup of batter into the pan. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Once you begin to see small bubbles on one side of the pancake and the sides begin to dry out, you can flip it over and cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Serve with warm maple syrup or honey, nuts, seeds and fresh fruit of your choice.

Notes

Buckwheat contains important doses of a phytonutrient called lignan, which protects our bodies against hormone-dependent diseases (including breast cancer). If you are struggling with a hormone imbalance, adding buckwheat to your diet helps your body balance hormone production.
