  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/2 cup wholemeal flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon ground
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons rice malt syrup
  • 1 1/4 cup full-fat milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • Coconut oil for frying

Optional Suggested Toppings

  • Mixed berries
  • Full-fat plain or Greek yoghurt or coconut yoghurt
  • Peanut butter


  • In a large bowl, combine buckwheat flour, wholemeal flour, oats, baking powder, sea salt and cinnamon. Add in remaining ingredients and stir until a batter forms. Set aside.
  • Heat a large skillet pan over a medium-high heat. Add in a dollop of coconut oil, then add 1 cup of batter per pancake. Repeat for remaining mixture.
  • Top your pancakes with berries, full-fat plain or Greek yoghurt and peanut butter to serve.


For a dairy-free pancake option: Use coconut yoghurt in place of full-fat plain or Greek yoghurt. Replace milk with a nut-based milk.
Note: Buckwheat flour is very absorbent and makes the mixture thick, add extra milk if required.
