Recipe of the Month: Buckwheat Pancakes

July 24,2015

Buckwheat is a light, dry, gluten free grain that is high in Magnesium and contains 8 essential amino acids. It is also high in Rutin (a phyto-chemical) that helps strengthen the capillaries and blood vessels, so this makes Buckwheat very healing to the cardiovascular system. It also contains Quercitin (an anti-oxidant) that is wonderful for decreasing excess fluid retention, phlegm and congestion in the body.


  • 1 cup of Buckwheat flour
  • 1 ¼ cups of water
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tsp each of cinnamon and cardamom powder

  4. Cook till golden brown
  5. These pancakes go well with a drizzle of maple syrup or honey and tahini.
