Buckwheat breakfast recipes

March 11, 2015

I have recently come across something amazing….buckwheat flour! I’ve been using it for practically everything because it’s texture resembles all-purpose flour so beautifully. It’s like magic!

While I want to use it in everything I bake, I usually only use it in my breakfast recipes because this way I don’t end up using the whole bag at once. Anyways, enough of my rambling, here are my top 5 must try buckwheat breakfast recipes!

Basic buckwheat pancakes (makes 10)

1 cup buckwheat flour
1 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups buttermilk (or 1 1/4 cup milk + 1 tablespoon vinegar)
1 large egg
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine the buckwheat flour, maple syrup, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Add in the buttermilk, egg and vanilla. Mix until just combined. Lumpy pancake batter is good pancake batter! Spoon batter onto a non-stick frying pan on medium heat. Reduce heat to medium low. Cook for about 1-2 minutes on each side until small bubbles form and burst on the batter surface. Flip pancake and cook for another 1-2 minutes on the other side until golden.Top with fruit and a generous drizzle of chocolate PB2 or maple syrup.

Buckwheat crepes

1/2 cup buckwheat flour
1 egg
1 cup milk of choice
1 tablespoon coconut oil melted
1 tablespoon agave nectar or maple syrup

Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and stir until smooth. Pour the batter through a sieve to ensure that there are no lumps. Let the batter sit for 30 mins or overnight in the fridge. This helps the batter set so the crepes don’t break as easily when cooked. Cook the crepes.

  1. Oh wow, these look soo good! I have never used buckwheat flour so I am going to have to try it! I have been on quite the almond flour kick lately and love the fluffy texture it gives, especially baked goods!
