Hazelnut Cacao Buckwheat Pancakes


Vegan, Gluten Free

Makes about 8 pancakes.

Blend dry ingredients in a food processor or high speed blender first until it resembles fine bread crumbs then add the wet ingredients (almond milk, vanilla, mashed banana).


  • 2 cups buckwheat flour
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 mashed bananas (ripe bananas work better)
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk (or any other milk of choice)
  • 2 tbsp hazelnut meal
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp baking powder


1. Set a non-stick frying pan to medium heat and spray with olive oil or coconut oil.
Pour batter onto the pan, using about ¼ cup of batter for each pancake. Flip when the edges become cooked and bubbles appear on the surface.
2. Serve with favourite toppings! I used: crushed hazelnuts, banana, figs & drizzled it with a simply cacao sauce!

  1. Looks great, and for I really love hazelnuts. Apparently all along the west coast (US) the hazelnut growers have been harrowed by an infectious fungus that has spread northwards over the last several years. Too bad! Say, does coconut sugar taste much like coconut, or is just mainly sweet?
