The Culy & Kids section is written by food blogger and mama Francesca from FrancescaKookt.nl . This time she is making delicious (healthy) pancakes with her children.
For about 12 pancakes:
- 200 grams of buckwheat flour
- 300 ml plant-based milk (e.g. almond or coconut milk)
- 3 eggs
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- pinch of salt
- coconut oil or butter for frying
- to serve: grated coconut, maple syrup and blueberries
“Mommy, are we going to make pancakes?” I hear it more and more on Sunday mornings. It seems like a tradition, those pancakes. And how much my toddler and I like that – not to forget. Because pancakes are a present, especially on a lazy Sunday morning.
I love the pancakes and try all the variants. The more unhealthy versions (simply with flour and milk) are my favorite and I alternate them with healthy versions. Such as with spelled flour, coconut flour or almond flour. Recently I started working with buckwheat flour and the result was fantastic. Thick, fluffy pancakes topped with grated coconut, blueberries and maple syrup. You get every child with a big smile at the breakfast table. Adults too, for that matter.
Buckwheat flour does not contain gluten, so you do not suffer from a skyrocketing blood sugar level after eating. Buckwheat is also full of phosphorus, potassium and magnesium. This gives your child a healthy start. And it’s delicious too!”
See the ingredients list on the right (or below in the mobile version)
Mix the buckwheat flour, vegetable milk, eggs, baking powder and salt in a large bowl and mix with a whisk or hand mixer to a lump-free batter. It will be a firm, just liquid batter.
Take a large non-stick frying pan and heat some coconut oil or butter in it. Depending on the size of your pan, you can bake several pancakes. Spoon a gravy spoon or small soup ladle of batter into the pan and smooth it out slightly with the bottom of the spoon. Bake the pancakes for 2 minutes until they are golden brown.
Serve the pancakes with grated coconut, maple syrup and blueberries. The perfect start to your Sunday morning and your kids will thank you.
Tip: replace the blueberries with other seasonal fruit. Actually, any soft fruit type is suitable for this.
