Awesome Almond Buckwheat Pancakes

Fluffy with a crunchy layer of golden almonds - yum!



Ingredients / Directions: 

1/3 c buckwheat flour
1/3 c whole wheat (or whole spelt) flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar (optional)

Combine separately:
1/3 c yogurt
1/2 c milk (or milk substitute)
1 egg
1 Tbsp melted butter

Mix wet and dry ingredients until just incorporated - batter can be a bit lumpy.

Heat a frying pan over medium heat with about a teaspoon of butter.
Pour in 1/4 of the batter and generously sprinkle with slivered
almonds. When bubbles start to appear in your pancake, flip it and cook
untill slightly browned on bottom. Repeat with the rest of the batter
adding a bit more butter to the pan each time.

Serve warm with maple syrup.

I just wanted to bring up

I just wanted to bring up the fact that spelt is NOT GLUTEN-FREE. Spelt is simply another variety of WHEAT. I love some of you recipes, however, I don't think that you should be giving out bad diet advice such as this to possible celiacs.

Hi there, I agree with you

Hi there,
I agree with you - spelt is not gluten-free. Some people who are not celiac avoid wheat, but not spelt. This recipe is labeled wheat-free (for those using spelt) but not gluten-free. (All the gluten-free recipes on this site are also wheat-free, but not vice versa.) I do my best to label things for everyone. As I said on my about page: "I am not a nutritionist or a doctor - so please, if you do have serious health concerns, consult with a professional." That's the best I can do. :)

is it possible to use spelt

is it possible to use spelt flour for the whole recipe instead of buckwheat flour? is there going to be a difference with the outcome?

Yes, you can use all spelt

Yes, you can use all spelt flour. It will taste a bit different than the buckwheat flour, but I'm pretty sure it will still taste wonderful. Please let us know how it goes - if you like them you may want to call them "Awesome Almond Spelt Pancakes". ;)

This is a wonderful recipe.

This is a wonderful recipe. I also tried using spelt instead of buckwheat flour. It does taste as great. Thanks.

buckwheat pancakes

Hi, I just happen to find your blog and it sound very interesting and informative. I am gluten, corn and dairy sensitive and I am trying to find recepies to make breads, quick breads, muffins, all those things I used to eat that I cannot anymore.

Your buckwheat almond recepies calls for yogurt. With what can I replace it to make it so I can eat them? Also can I make my own quinoa flour by grounding the quinoa? I have a commercial blender grinder and I bought the quinoa and the store said if I grind it, it will turn into flour? Is that true? Have you ever done it yourself?

If you could help me to find all sorts of recepies so I could learn to eat the foods I like by replacing with other grains that are gluten free I would appreciate it.

Thanks, Giovanna

Hi Giovanna, Soy yogurt is a

Hi Giovanna,
Soy yogurt is a good substitute for dairy yogurt.

Yes, you can make your own quinoa flour - it may be a bit granular. I sometimes use a coffee grinder to grind grains, nuts, and seeds - which works well (though always chunkier than store-bought flour - but fresher).

There are tons of great recipes on the internet these days - I just use google to search and am delighted with how many great resources there are out there.

Good luck and have fun! :)
