Banana Buckwheat Protein Pancakes (Gluten Free) - The Lemon Bowl

Certain foods will always remind me of my mother and buckwheat is one of them. More specifically, buckwheat pancakes. While my friends were enjoying chocolate chip pancakes and Belgium waffles every weekend, we were most likely eating buckwheat pancakes, steel cut oats or cream of wheat.

Now that I have kids of my own, I can’t tell you how grateful I am that my mother taught us to appreciate whole foods with texture and flavor. Traditional pancakes made with white flour not only lack vitamins and nutrients but they are essentially all sugar which means you will be craving more sugar (read: more pancakes and syrup) even after eating a giant stack.

My husband loves drizzling them with a little pure maple syrup but I thought they were sweet enough on their own thanks to super-ripe bananas in the batter. Serve with fresh berries or extra bananas and you’re good to go.

Your fork is waiting.

    Could you use any protein powder?

    I’ll take the nutty flavor of buckwheat pancakes over plain AP flour pancakes any day! Bonus that they’re extra nutritious.

    I love finding easy gluten free recipes. We are going to have breakfast for dinner today since I found this recipe! Do you think you can use this batter in a waffle maker?

        I haven’t found the ingredients yet my local food store seems to have all of Bob’s Red Mill products except the buckwheat… I’ll go to Whole Foods if the snow ever stops! And will let you know how they turn out.
