Buckwheat, banana and coconut pancakes

by | Apr 9, 2018 | Desserts

My buckwheat, banana and coconut pancakes are so fluffy and versatile they can be served to any age, sweet or savoury! The buckwheat in this is a great alternative for those wanting or needing to try a gluten free diet and the maple syrup in the sauce is the perfect alternative to refined sugar. The raw cacao is the highest plant-based source of iron out there and contains higher amount of calcium than cow’s milk. This is certainly a chocolatey topping you can enjoy without any repercussions.

  • 4 large organic eggs,
  • 4 tbsp desiccated coconut
  • 100g (3/4) cup of buckwheat flour
