YUM! I love a dollop of coconut oil on top of my Buckwheat Pancakes. Love it so much that it melted into the shape of a heart. These gluten-free pancakes are super easy to make. Lucuma adds a naturally sweet maple flavor, and is packed with anti-oxidants, minerals and vitamins: carotenes and Vitamin B 3.
Did you know that buckwheat is one of the few grains that is also a complete protein?
1/2 cup apple juice
1 Tablespoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup buckwheat flour
*1 Tablespoon Lucuma
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon Celtic Sea Salt®
Extra virgin coconut oil for frying
Whisk the egg in a medium sized bowl. Stir in juice, oil, maple syrup and vanilla. Add flour, baking powder, salt, and stir until well combined.
Heat the coconut heat over medium heat in a cast iron griddle or heavy skillet. Brush it over the surface when it melts. Ladle batter onto the hot pan. Fry for about 2 minutes until the tops are bubbly and edges appear dry. Flip over pancakes and fry for about a minute until the bottoms are brown.
Serve immediately with your favorite topping.

* If you do not have Lucuma powder, you can just use all buckwheat flour or sub maca powder for the Lucuma.
