Mix up your Sunday morning pancake ritual with these deliciously healthy pancakes. Top them with fresh fruits, chia seeds, honey, maple syrup, yoghurt, ricotta or mascarpone cheese, fresh cream, chocolate chips or your favourite chocolate spread, depending on what you fancy! They make a pretty stack, too.


  • 125 g ( oz/1 cup) buckwheat flour
  • 1


Combine the buckwheat flour, sugar and salt in a large bowl.

Add the egg, banana, orange zest, orange juice, butter, buttermilk, milk and lemon juice and whisk until well combined and lump-free. (You can also whiz the batter in a blender for a smooth result, but leaving it slightly chunky will give a more rustic effect.)

For fluffier pancakes, let the batter rest for 10 minutes.
