Buckwheat Pancakes (gluten-free!)

Since becoming gluten free, there are some routines that have been hard to keep up, like pancakes on the weekend.

But not now! Introducing buckwheat pancakes! I first had them at Gav and Sas’s house in Sydney and they are amazing! Admittedly they aren’t fluffly, but as a gluten free replacement, I love them!

They are perfect on the weekend with some banana and maple syrup. And great as a snack to take to work or slathered with Nutella!

I buy buckwheat flour in bulk from a health food store in Parkes, but I think you can also get it from Coles/Woolies.
