1 cup organic milk

1 free range egg

3 tbs melted margerine

6 tbs white flour

6 tbs buckwheat flour

2 tsp cane sugar

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla essence

1 tsp bi-carb soda (no more than that!)

butter or veg. oil for frying

1 banana

1 tbs brown sugar

1 tbs dessicated coconut

zest from one lime

juice from one lime

maple syrup


In a separate bowl mix the dry ingredients together and in another the wet ingredients

Add the wet to dry and mix until smooth with no lumps

Let sit while you prepare the bananas

Mix brown sugar and coconut in a bowl and dip sliced banana until coated

Put a little vegetable oil in a pan and fry both sides of banana for 2 minutes, remove and cover to keep warm.

Heat oil in frying pan over medium heat and spoon batter on frying man to make 2-3 pancakes at a time

When lots of little bubbles have formed at the top, they are ready to flip and cook on the other side for 2-3 minutes until golden.

While the pancakes are cooking remove zest from lime

Mix 1/2 cup maple syrup with the juice from the lime.

My mom made me buckwheat pancake the morning after I birthed Tate. I remember them tasting so good and I felt like I was giving my new baby such a healthy treat. I even saw some buckwheat flour today and thought about it, but stopped myself from buying any since I wanted to find a recipe first.
