Chunky Apple Buckwheat Pancakes with Superseed

Posted by: Garden of Life on Wednesday, August 22, 2012

Texture and Taste. I am always happy with the deliciousness these pancakes give! Gluten free, Grain free, Dairy Free, Refined White Sugar Free.

SERVINGS: 10 TO 12 four inch pancakes
PREP TIME: 25 minutes
COOK TIME: 25 minutes


• 4 whole eggs
• 2 tablespoons chia seeds or Garden of Life Super Seed
• 1/4 cup coconut flour
• 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 2 tablespoons oil (I use Garden of Life Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, available here)
• 1.5 cups cooked buckwheat (see recipe below)
• 1/2 cup water
• 2 tablespoons sugar or sugar-alternative (I use raw coconut palm sugar)
• 1 green apple, peeled and small diced
• ghee or oil for cooking (1 tablespoon ghee + 1 tablespoon coconut oil works best)


Prepare cooked buckwheat: Bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Add 1/2 cup buckwheat cereal (I use Bob’s Red Mill or Pocono brands). Allow to boil on medium to low heat for 10 minutes. Turn heat off. Cover with lid and prepare ingredients for batter.

Beat eggs with an electric hand mixer or standing kitchen mixer for 3 minutes. Eggs should be frothy and pale in color. Add chia seeds and allow them to gel for 5 minutes. Add flour, cinnamon, vanilla extract, oil, cooked buckwheat, water and sugar. With mixer, blend ingredients for 2 minutes. Fold in diced apple.

Prepare griddle or skillet by heating ghee or oil. Ladle 1/4 cup batter onto surface and adjust heat, by lowering, if necessary. When bubbles start to form, flip pancake over onto the other side for about 3-4 minutes until done. Repeat steps until batter has been used up. Enjoy with a drizzle of maple syrup and apple sauce.

I make buckwheat pancakes too, but with blueberries, organic skim milk and egg whites. They are delicious! I will have to try this recipe. I didn't know there was buckwheat cereal. I was trying to go gluten free for an autoimmune, but I also came down with hypothyroidism out of Valley Fever. Hot pure maple syrup is like the icing on the cake.
