Beetroot & Buckwheat Pancakes – gluten, dairy and egg free

You’re probably swimming in social media pancake recipes at the moment. Not to mention the pink valentines recipes right?! I’m not really one for valentines day (the Gluten Eating Husband and I take it in turns to buy a card if we remember. Invariably someone feels guilty), but something obviously seeped in somewhere, because I found myself throwing these together for tea this week. Baby A is currently off egg as a trial to see if it helps her eczema so tried a ‘chia egg’ to bind this mix. It worked pretty well, and we served these with salmon, horseradish (for the grownups) and a generous helping of greens. You could even make them into a heart shape if you feel so inclined. I didn’t ;)

Pink Pancakes

Makes 8 thick pancakes, about 10cm in diameter.

Simply whizz the following ingredients together in a powerful blender (if you don’t have a blender, whisk all ingredients together and fold through the grated beetroot):

  • 1 tbsp milled chia seeds
  • 100g buckwheat flour (I used sprouted buckwheat flour from Rude Health as it is certified gluten free)
  • 100g gluten free plain flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 300ml of your usual milk (I used almond milk)
  • 1 raw medium beetroot, peeled and chopped

Heat some oil in a pan, and spoon in about 2 tbsp per pancake. Cook for 2-3 minutes until bubbles appear on the surface before turning over and cooking for another 2 minutes on the other side.

  1. WOW! never seen pancakes like this before – Awesosme! My son sadly wouldn’t be impressed by the pinkness – flip side is I will get to make them all for me :) YUM!

  2. I love beetroot and I love pancakes but never thought of putting them together! And what a great colour. Thanks for linking up with #freefromfridays
