Are Buckwheat pancakes healthier than regular pancakes?
Since buckwheat is loaded to the MAX with so much goodness as outlined above, using it to make pancakes is such a good idea! They would be considered better for you than regular pancakes, as buckwheat flour is more nutrient dense than all purpose flour!

What is Buckwheat?
Buckwheat is a nutrient-dense and gluten free seed (not a whole grain like most people think) that is typically eaten in Asian countries, and is getting popular over here. It’s got this deep, nutty, rich flavor that I have yet to find in any other flour. Additionally, buckwheat makes VRY VRY light and airy baked goods such as this buckwheat pancake recipe!

How to make Vegan Buckwheat Pancakes

Toast

Toast the almonds in a preheated oven until they are lightly golden brown. Remove them from the oven, crush them up a bit and set them aside.

Mix

In a large bowl, mix together the yogurt, almond milk, coconut sugar and egg yolks until smooth. In a separate bowl, mix together the dry ingredients until well combined.

Beat

In a separate medium sized bowl, beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.

Combine

Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until everything is well incorporated. Carefully fold in the egg whites until just incorporated.

Cook

Cook the pancakes over medium heat by dropping batter into the pan. When it bubbles, flip the pancake!

Serve

Top with peaches or as desired, then DEVOUR!

Topping Suggestions

This recipe calls for delicious roasted peaches to finish them off, however I encourage you to get creative with toppings! A big dollop of whipped cream or coconut cream along with some fresh fruit would be delicious on these pancakes, or you can get fancy and add some cheesecake filling from my gluten free brownie recipe with some sliced strawberries! Another tasty topping idea would be to add some cinnamon drizzle frosting from my easy cinnamon roll keto protein pancakes.

How to freeze Pancakes

To freeze these delicious pancakes for another morning, I recommend placing pancakes in groups of 2 in small ziploc bags, then tossing the small bags into a large freezer safe bag. This way, you can pull out a serving size easily and reheat to enjoy as needed! If you freeze them all in the same bag, they will stick together and you will have to thaw them all at once.
