Banana & Buckwheat Pancakes
Serves 4
A fantastic gluten-free option to have for breakfast on the weekend or made into mini pikelets for the kid’s lunchboxes! The nutty flavour of the buckwheat goes perfectly with the sweetness of the banana. These pancakes are super moreish, whilst also being a great source of fibre and protein.
