2 tbsp. cacao powder
1 tbsp. coconut oil
2 tsp. maple syrup or honey
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground clove

To prepare the buckwheat - Add the buckwheat groats to a bowl and cover with 2 - 3 inches of water. Soak overnight, 8 - 12 hours. Strain the water and rinse the buckwheat.
To prepare the pancakes - Add all pancake ingredients to a blender or food processor. Mix on medium-high speed until smooth, 30 - 60 seconds.
Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add ~1/4 - 1/3 cup pancake mixture for each pancake. Careful not to over crowd the pan. Heat 2 - 3 minutes, until bubbling and then flip, cooking an additional 1 - 2 minutes. Once both sides are golden brown transfer the pancakes to a plate.
