So today I have a recipe for buckwheat pancakes for you. My basic recipe for sweet vegan crêpes will follow soon, which we also have almost weekly. This time around I made the pancakes with buckwheat flour only, but you can mix it well with another flour like spelt flour.
Buckwheat is naturally free of gluten because it’s not a grain, but a polygonaceous plant and is even related to rhubarb. It’s a powerhouse of nutrients and provides a high content of fiber and protein. The grains contain three times as much lysine as most other cereals – this essential protein provides strong bones among other things. In addition buckwheat contains plenty of vitamin E and B1 or B2, minerals such as potassium, iron, calcium, magnesium as well as silicic acid, which is very important for skin and hair.
