Fluffy Buckwheat Pancakes: oat milk, no sugar

I make Fluffy Buckwheat Pancakes: oat milk, no added sugar all the time. I love that buckwheat flour is naturally gluten-free. This buckwheat pancake recipe is light and fluffy; and the nutty flavour of buckwheat is delicious with a hint of cinnamon and topped with maple syrup, berries and a sprinkle of nuts or seeds.

  • Oat milk (or your preferred milk) – 1 cups

Sue Maree P Baking Tips

  • MILK – use your favourite milk
  • SIFTING FLOUR – you can sift the flour but I never do for pancakes
  • COOKING – ensure your pan is on a medium heat, too low the pancake won't brown and too high and the pancake burns before the insides are cooked
