Sprouted Buckwheat Pancakes with Pears
Here's more of the sprouts I made a few days ago!
Pancakes are seriously one of my favourite foods. My dad used to make them with 12 grain four when I was a kid, and used to make them super thin. Almost like a crepe, and it used to take up the entire plate! He always used to make Mickey Mouse ears too <3 I however, have not mastered the art of Mickey Mouse pancakes, but I like to think I make a damn good circle pancake!!
This is the first pancakes recipe, but lets get real here. Prepare for many!
Spouted Buckwheat Pancakes with Pears
3 C Sprouted buckwheat (It doesn't have to be sprouted if you don't have sprouted on hand). If you only have buckwheat flour, that's no problem! Just use that instead of the sprouts.
1 tsp aluminum free baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
2 free range eggs (organic if you can!) **See note
1-1.5 C almond milk
about 1 Tbsp coconut oil for the skillet
1 Pear sliced thin.
Notes: You can substitute an egg for egg replacer, or chia eggs (which is what I usually do to make a recipe like this vegan.
Put the buckwheat into a food processor and grind it into a flour.
Add in the baking powder, cinnamon, eggs, and 1 C almond milk.
Turn the food processor onto low speed and it all mixed together no effort involved :)
I find that I always need to use a little bit more milk to make the batter thinner, so add the remaining half cup in for your desired consistency.
Preheat a skillet to medium heat. You can tell when the pan is ready when you pour a tsp of water on the pan, and it looks like dancing marbles.
Pour 1/4 of the batter to make 1 pancake that is about 6" in diameter.
While the pancake is cooking, cut up the pear into thin slices so that they're ready when your pancake is fresh and hot off the stove!
Each side will cook for about 2-3 minutes. The best way to know when it is ready to be flipped is when the sides start lifting off the pan, and the top is bubbly.
The pancakes should be dry but still soft to touch. Put sliced pears on top and top with your favorite pancake topping! mmmmmmm. REAL maple syrup :)
