Gluten Free Buckwheat Banana Pancakes

Buckwheat gives a firm texture and great nutty taste to your pancakes. By adding a ripe banana to the batter you get a sweet, moist texture that is perfectly complimented by walnuts and a squeeze of honey.

Buckwheat is a high fibre and protein alternative to white flour. It also has more vitamins and minerals so a healthier choice all round.   

Buckwheat is also gluten free for anyone that has to avoid wheat.
