Makes 8 pancakes 

Gluten Free | Dairy Free


  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/3 cup almond milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 


  • Fresh figs
  • Raspberries
  • Toasted walnuts
  • Bee pollen
  • Organic maple syrup


  1. In a medium-sized bowl, mix the dry ingredients: buckwheat flour, baking powder and ground cinnamon.
  2. In another bowl, mash the banana and add the egg, almond milk and vanilla extract and whisk together.
  3. Gradually add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix to form a thick batter.
  4. Heat a large non-stick pan and add a little coconut oil to prevent the pancakes from sticking.
  5. Scoop out approximately ¼ cup of batter and pour into the pan. Cook the pancake for 2 minutes, then flip and cook for another 2 minutes or until both sides are golden. 
  6. Set aside and finish cooking the other pancakes, usually cooking four at a time.
  7. To serve, top with sliced figs, raspberries, toasted walnuts, bee pollen and drizzle with maple syrup.
