My failed attempt at Buckwheat pancakes

Whenever I’m having my daily dose of social media looking at all of the wonderful vegan foods that people are making I always come across at least 3 people making pancakes and every time I think “I love pancakes, I want to try and make some”. So yesterday was the day. I found a recipe from the cookbook Honestly Healthy (it is not a vegan cook book rather an “alkalising lifestyle” book) and I thought why not? It can’t be that hard right?

The recipe consists of;

70g buckwheat flour

70g rice flour

300g rice milk

1 tbsp baking powder

1 tbsp sunflower oil

pinch of sea salt

Mix it all together and you are done.


I didn’t have any sunflower oil and this was where the issues began as I only had coconut oil. I melted some and added it however the texture wasn’t right at all. The only way that I could make any was to make them really thin and even then I don’t think the temperature was right because half were dark and half weren’t. The travesty! How do people make them all thick and delicious looking?! I just don’t understand. I think I will have to use less milk so they are thicker and don’t spread out in the pan as much next time. After my pancake debacle we went to a scammel which had loads of vintage cars, bikes and tractors, and I got to sit in a fire truck, so all was well.

If anyone has any ideas on the perfect buckwheat or rice flour pancakes (that’s all I mainly have, I’ve got a bit of coconut flour but that’s for special occasions) then please comment and tell me haha

Have a good day everyone
