Gluten free buckwheat pancakes
Gluten free buckwheat banana pancakes are a hearty and satisfying breakfast.
During the summer months, I generally crave light and fresh foods. Still, I also crave warm and hearty choices, and whole grains with staying power. Bright sunny mornings have me opening all the windows and doors - letting the cool fresh air in.
A warm hearty breakfast goes well with a cool morning, and one that fills me up and keeps me satisfied until early afternoon is a must.
Nutrient Rich Breakfast
Thankfully, pancakes have a year-round appeal for me - winter or summer, pancakes just seem to go with weekends. Spring and summer pancakes might involve fresh fruit or even fresh vegetables, which is always a plus.
When creating a new pancake recipe, I try to meet several aspects - flavor, fluffy texture, nutrition and staying power. These are all of those things and more.
These pancakes are packed with the essentials. Buckwheat and hemp bring a good amount of protein and fiber to pair with a natural sweetness with the wholesome nutrition. A short ingredient list and tasty satisfying flavor make this one of my favorite vegan pancake recipes.

Six ingredient pancake recipe
I went through several test recipes and variations to get to this recipe - a hearty, naturally sweet pancake with a bit of fluffiness to balance the nutrient dense whole grain.
With a total of six ingredients, this is an easy vegan gluten free recipe using what you most likely have on hand. These pancakes have no added sugar, using a ripe banana as a natural sweetener.
Adding dark chocolate chips makes these pancakes even sweeter... so good, and like a completely new recipe with one added ingredient.
