Notes

You can make a big batch of these pancakes, freeze in individual portions and lightly toast to warm for quick breakfasts. Despite its name, buckwheat is not related to wheat and is therefore gluten-free. Buckwheat is actually a seed with high nutritional value. It is a good source of protein, is rich in fibre and has a good concentration of minerals like copper and magnesium to name a few of its benefits.
