Ingredients for buckwheat pancakes:
Milk. I used cow milk, but this recipe will work with plant based milk as well. Use 1:1 almond milk instead of cow milk to make vegan banana buckwheat pancakes.
Banana. Those bananas with brown spots that are too ripe are perfect for this recipe. They will help to glue the batter and add the sweetness. How to make buckwheat pancakes without eggs? Use bananas!
Buckwheat flour. I used store-bought fine buckwheat flour, but you can make your own by grinding the buckwheat seeds. Buckwheat flour pancakes don’t need any addition of wheat flour or other flour. I used lighter flour (made from hulled buckwheat) to make lighter and finer pancakes. But you can use darker flour, which is made from unhulled buckwheat.
If you want fluffier pancakes, substitute half of buckwheat flour to the all-purpose flour. You can substitute buckwheat to oat flour, but it will be a totally different recipe. Stay tuned for more buckwheat flour recipes!
Baking powder. This leavening agent is needed to make the pancakes fluffier and rise. Don’t skip it, if you’re looking for the best ever pancakes recipe.
This is the basic ingredients needed for banana buckwheat pancakes. Adjust the flavor by adding vanilla or sugar. I prefer to serve pancakes with sweet jams or maple syrup.
