Serve: 10 - 15 pancakes
Time: Overnight soaking + 30 minutes
2 cups buckwheat, soaked overnight
1 cup water
2 tbsp. maple syrup or honey
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. ground clove
1/4 tsp. salt (optional)
Maple syrup or honey
To prepare the pancakes - Rinse your buckwheat. Add your buckwheat to a bowl and cover with 2 -3 inches of water. Let rest overnight, 8 - 10 hours.
Once the buckwheat has soaked, strain and rinse.
Add your soaked buckwheat and the remaining ingredients to a food processor or blender. Mix on medium-high speed until smooth and thick.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot add ~1/3 cup of the pancake mixture to the pan. Use the back of a wooden spoon to spread the mixture in a circle or gently rotate the pan in a circular motion for your desired pancake shape.
Let the mixture cook 1 - 3 minutes, until bubbling and the bottom side golden brown. Gently flip the pancake and cook an additional 1 minute.
Work in batches until all the pancake mixture has been used.
Note: you can store the blended buckwheat tortilla ingredients in the fridge 1 - 3 days and use as needed. The mixture will begin to thicken with time but keeps well!
Decorate with your favorite toppings and enjoy warm!
Store leftovers in the fridge 1 - 2 days!
