Nutritious Buckwheat Pancakes – Recipe

Take a healthier twist to this year’s Pancake Day celebrations and whip up this Nutritious Buckwheat Pancake recipe by Heather Richards.

These make a great brunch option and an alternative to our almond pancakes if you are unable to eat nuts or prefer a slightly lighter option. Buckwheat is gluten free and rich in the flavonoid rutin and magnesium, both of which are supportive for cardiovascular health. Top your pancakes with flavonoid dense berries and this dish is a good one for your heart, too!
