Wholesome Apple & Buckwheat Pancakes

by lydia on July 3, 2010

I have been fiddling around with pancake recipes for the past month. I try to make pancakes once a week for the boys, simply because they adore them. I don’t have a lot of experience with gluten free baking so I had a few failures at first. However, today I had sweet success! All the boys LOVED these pancakes, and couldn’t stop raving about them. I happened to like them myself. So these will be something we make again and again.

Wholesome Apple & Buckwheat Pancakes

1 cup buckwheat flour

1 cup oat flour (gluten free)

2 tablespoons of organic sugar

2 teaspoons aluminum free baking powder

1 teaspoon of fine sea salt

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

2 tablespoons melted butter

1 1/4 cups whole milk (preferrably raw), you could add up to another 1/2 cup more milk to thin these out and stretch the batter

1 egg

2 apples, grated (I kept the skin on, you can peel them if you desire)

1 tablespoon vanilla

Preheat your oven to 200 degrees and place a plate in the oven to contain your finished pancakes.

Sift together the dry ingredients, flour through sea salt, in a large bowl. In another bowl, mix together the wet ingredients, butter through vanilla MINUS the grated apple. Whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, then stir in the grated apple. Heat your skillet or griddle over medium heat using some more butter to coat the pan. Add 1/4 cup batter at a time for each pancake. Cook until bubbles form, about 4 minutes, flip and cook 4 minutes more. Place finished pancakes on the plate in the warm oven. Repeat process until all the batter is gone.

I serve these with maple butter, which is basically a 2 to 1, butter to maple syrup ratio. I do this to cut down on the sugar and to save a dime!! Unfortunately I did not get a picture of these, but will be sure to the next time I make them!!
