Spinach Buckwheat Pancakes Recipe

Our Spinach Buckwheat Pancakes are a really fun way to add greens to your diet or to kids' diet, as you will not taste the spinach at all ! Feel free to use fresh herbs instead of dried herbs in the pancake batter if you have them. Buckwheat is not a grain / cereal, and even though it has 'wheat' in its name, buckwheat is in no way related to wheat. It is actually a seed (sometimes referred to as a 'pseudo-grain', just like fellow nutrition heroes quinoa and amaranth). So in addition to being nutritious and naturally gluten free, it is a great food to add to your diet if you are trying to add variety or reduce the amount of gluten that you eat. The vibrant green pancakes would make a great addition to a brunch spread. Serve them with vegan yoghurt and fresh parsley or toppings of your choice, sweet (omit the garlic and the herbs from the batter) or savoury.
