Buckwheat Pancakes

A Very Tasty Breakfast Treat

Have you ever tried to make buckwheat pancakes? They are so satisfying and good for you too. Many people consider pancakes too much effort to make and go for those packet mixes you buy in the supermarket. Not only are they full of things you don’t want in your diet, they are more expensive and don’t taste half as good!Buttermilk is not that hard to get, and buckwheat you can easily obtain from any good health food store.

Try this recipe, the combination of warm soft pancakes, bananas, blueberries and some (real) maple syrup on top is heavenly. Be sure to buy real maple syrup by the way, not that “fake” stuff in those plastic squeeze bottles. Sprinkle with a little Stevia (natural sweetener) and avoid maple syrup if you are worried about having sugar with your breakfast treat.


2 bananas 2 eggs 1½ cups buttermilk 1 cup buckwheat flour ½ cup stoneground cake flour (Can’t find it? Mix 1 part cornflour to 3 parts plain flour) 1 tbs brown sugar 1 tbs baking powder Pinch of Himalayan salt Sunflower or rice bran oil for frying Fresh blueberries 100% pure Canadian maple syrup on top


Whisk in the eggs, then add the buttermilk. Add the dry ingredients to a large bowl and create a well in the middle. Add the wet ingredients and whisk together until just combined. Leave to rest for 15 minutes. Add one teaspoon of sunflower oil in a pan over medium low to medium heat. Once it starts getting hot, add two tablespoons of the pancake mixture. As soon as bubbles start forming on the surface of the pancake, drop on some blueberries, flip and cook for another minute. Set aside on a plate lined with a paper towel (keep warm in the oven if you like). Serve drizzled with plenty of pure Canadian maple syrup. Enjoy!


Don’t use the maple syrup if you are trying to clear a candida yeast infection, you are best to avoid any form of sweetener until after your candida cleanse. The same goes for bananas, berries are a better option in this case.

High Fiber Breakfast

A High Fiber Diet Means Great Health

A high fiber diet affects most parts of your digestive system. It increases the amount of time you chew which results in increased salivary and gastric juice flow. This decreases dental plaque and tooth decay, satisfies your appetite more quickly and as a result reduces your total calorie intake. What does that mean? It means you feel fuller sooner and eat less, and that means weight loss. There are many more reasons why you would benefit from a high fiber diet, for example soluble fibers also tend to have a cholesterol lowering effect.

It increases the removal of bile acids, decreases intestinal absorption of fatty acids and cholesterol and decreases cholesterol synthesis. Soluble fiber also binds cholesterol for elimination. These are just a handful of the many reasons you would benefit from adding fiber to your diet, and this recipe is a great start!
