Buckwheat & stewed pear pancakes

Last Updated: 12 December 2018








Buckwheat & stewed pear pancakes

Buckwheat flour is high in fibre, which helps to keep your digestive tract healthy. 


275ml semi skimmed or almond or oat milk

1 egg

Pinch of salt

1tsp coconut oil, melted

60g wholemeal or gluten-free flour

50g buckwheat flour

1 tsp coconut oil for cooking

Juice of 1 lemon

2 small ripe pears, decored and peeled

6 medjool dates, destoned and chopped into small pieces



1. Place the milk, egg, salt and oil into a large bowl and mix well.

2. Mix the flours and salt in a bowl and make a well in the middle. Slowly pour in the milk and egg mixture and stir to combine with the flour. Mix well until you have a smooth batter. Leave batter to rest while you prepare the pears.

3. Add the pears to a small saucepan with a pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg. Add a little hot water and heat over a medium heat for around five minutes until pears are soft. Remove from heat and set aside.

4. Heat the coconut oil in a heavy-based non-stick frying pan and add two tbsp of batter to the pan once hot. Spread the batter and cook for around 2 minutes on each side until nicely browned. Serve with a spoonful of the stewed pears and a dollop of Greek yogurt or dairy-free yogurt and the chopped dates.
