Buckwheat pancake recipe – vegan gluten free

Post Type

A delicious, light buckwheat pancake recipe served with a warm fresh apple berry compote.

I added turmeric in this recipe as I was having some tummy issues but feel free to leave it out. My husband wasn’t keen on the colour that turmeric creates but I don’t mind. The pancakes taste light and a little bit grainy but I’m pretty much used to that as I have been gluten free for a while now.

The compote isn’t too sweet, add more sugar or substitute it with agave or stevia.
