Awesome Corn-Free & Gluten Free Buckwheat Pancakes
The company is 123 Gluten Free and it is Allie’s Awesome Buckwheat Pancake Mix. I have it in the aStore on page 6 of the corn-free baking items list.
For those of you who are new to the gluten-free scene, buckwheat is not really wheat. In fact it is a distant cousin of beets. The buckwheat is really a seed. The seeds are packed with nutrients and this is one of the few vegetable items which have all the essential proteins for a complete protein.
I made them as suggested, but the batter is thin. When I got to the end of the box I didn’t have enough mix to follow the directions, so I improvised and the following recipe is quite thick and filling:
1 1/4 cup of the mix
1/2 cup powdered buttermilk
3/4 cup almond milk
plenty of plump blueberries
Cook as directed on a hot griddle.
Making up a batch of pancakes without adding the fruit is something which can be frozen and heated in the toaster. Just let them cool, separate them with plastic wrap, and freeze in an airtight container.
You can even use them like a sandwich wrap if you make them the original way on the box and make them big enough. Wrap them up in the plastic wrap by putting it on the plastic wrap and folding the edge of the wrap up over one edge of the pancake, then gently roll the pancake up and seal it into the plastic wrap. These should store in the fridge for several days.
There are a bunch of recipes inside the box which I can’t wait to try out!
