100% healthy, cruelty-free, sugar- and gluten-free. I was asked whether wheatgrass is gluten-free because it doesn’t sound gluten-free. But wheatgrass is not a grain, it is a very healthy micro-green that can be used as a supplement or healthy ingredient.
I woke up very late today and couldn’t decide whether to have a green smoothie or pancakes for brunch. Why is it so hard to decide! I bet you’ve also been through that multiple times.
So I went for a compromise and made green pancakes! Which was the best idea ever cause they tasted like GREEN CANDY PANCAKES !! :O
I use buckwheat flour which is a very healthy gluten-free flour with a nutty taste. It is my favourite flour and I use it for everything. As an egg replacement, you can either use a mashed banana or a flaxseed egg. I use both in this recipe. You can also go for apple butter or a chia egg.
Ingredients for the batter:
- 100g buckwheat flour
- 2 Tbs wheatgrass powder
- 1 large mashed banana
- 1 flax egg (1 Tbs flaxseed + 50ml water)
- 100ml oat milk or any plant milk
Simply combine everything in a bowl.
For frying, I used just 1/2 tsp coconut oil which I spread in the pan with a brush. I highly recommend using a brush as you will be able to work with minimum amounts of oil which is always healthier for you. Even though coconut oil is claimed to be super healthy, it’s still a fat and should therefore only be consumed in small amounts.
Toppings I highly recommend for layering:
- Sliced kiwi
- Banana coins
- Other fruit (like cherries)
- Buckinis / buckwheat groats (or anything crunchy)
I loved this combination and I’ll definitely remake these fairy pancakes in the future! If I didn’t love it, I wouldn’t share this recipe with you 🙂 I hope you are inspired to try something new (like adding green powders to your pancakes or even trying a new flour) and that you will LOVE this recipe as much as I do.
Thanks for reading ♡
