WW Ricki's buckwheat pancakes
Diet Dessert and Dogs recipe that Ricki called Quick and Easy, High-Protein Single Serve Breakfast Pancakes. I have had it in mind over the last few weeks since I first saw it. I am always impressed by the creative use of gluten free ingredients and interesting flavours in her recipes. My kitchen is quite different to Ricki's, so I made some changes. I don't have protein powder in my pantry, I find buckwheat flour easier than grinding groats and I used coconut sugar rather than stevia. I also forgot the cinnamon.
The mixture was quite unlike any pancake mixture I have used before. It was quite thin at first and then became rather thick but it made thinner pancakes than Ricki's. Nevertheless it came together really quickly. It was ready to eat by the time Sylvia was out of the bath.
I am sending these back to Ricki for her Wellness Weekends.

Ricki's Buckwheat Pancakes
Adapted from Diet Dessert and Dogs
2 tbsp (15 ml) tahini
3/4 cup soy milk
2 tbsp coconut sugar
1/4 cup buckwheat flour
2 tbsp rice flour
2 tbsp chia seeds, roughly ground
2 tbsp ground linseeds (flax)
1 tsp cinnamon (I forgot)
1 pinch fine sea salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
butter, margarine or oil for frying
Mix all ingredients together. They will be quite thin at first but after a minute or so they will become quite thick. Heat a large frypan and melt butter or swirl a little oil. Drop 3 generous dessertspoon of mixture into the frypan to make three pancakes and spread a little with the back of the spoon. Fry for a few minutes until a few bubbles appear on the surface (but not as may as regular pancakes) and it dries out slightly. Flip over (should be golden brown) and fry another minute until browned on the other side. Repeat with remaining mixture. We served ours with a little nuttalex margarine and a drizzle of maple syrup.
