Recipe for Vegan Buckwheat Pancakes
Vegan Buckwheat Pancakes are a healthy breakfast option. Buckwheat is not a cereal but a grain, hence it is easier to digest and helps maintain the alkaline pH balance of the blood.
In this recipe bananas are being substituted for eggs and water is used instead of milk. To make it creamier you can use soy milk instead of water.
Serving it with sliced fruit and soy yoghurt makes it a deliciously yummy breakfast, especially on weekends when you can pamper yourself.
One vegan meal saves about 3000 gallons of Water, 16 pounds of Grain and saves money and your health.

Tips for Making Crisp Buckwheat Pancakes
Grind the Buckwheat groats in a coffee grinder or food processor
We have noticed that using buckwheat groats gives a different texture to the pancakes. It is fluffier, fresher and tastier. When we used the flour the pancakes came out a little rubbery. So if there is a choice between buying the groats or the flour, it is recommended to go for the groats.
It is also important to grind the buckwheat groats very fine. A coffee grinder is ideal for this purpose. If you use a food processor then it would be a good idea to make sure you can grind the buckwheat to get a really fine flour.
For making the pancakes creamier
Soy milk or Almond milk can be used instead of water to make the pancakes richer and creamier.
Cooking time on the pan should be Just So
It is good to remember that if you leave the pancake on the pan too long it becomes rubbery and chewy. You have to be watchful and flip it over at the right moment. This will come with practice.
For making it fluffier
A pinch of baking powder can be added to the batter to make the pancakes fluffier and lighter in texture. This is an option but not necessarily required. It would be a good idea to experiment and see what one prefers.
