I love pancakes! (And breakfast food in general.) Unfortunately, everyone in my family except for my husband is gluten-intolerant. So most plant-based breakfast foods involving wheat are out of the question. However, buckwheat pancakes are a great alternative for people who are gluten intolerant.
Buckwheat is not actually a grain, but a fruit seed that is mostly used as a grain. It is low in calories and abundant in complex carbohydrates and fiber. Buckwheat has great nutritional benefits such as the potential to boost heart health, aid weight loss, reduce blood pressure, and even manage diabetes. Because of its high fiber content, it is also great for improving and regulating digestion.
These pancakes are easy to make, don’t require many ingredients, and make a great breakfast dish!
