Buckwheat pancakes are a healthier version of this simple sweet. In this recipe we use the combination of plain and buckwheat flour. Buckwheat flour is a gluten-free flour rich in vitamins and minerals and gives this recipe interesting texture and nutty flavour.

Buckwheat flour is a great flour from which you can make almost everything - starting from bread, grissini, muffins, pasta or even gnocchi. This pancakes can be eaten plain as well as with some jam, any kind of sweet spread as well as with ricotta cheese.
