Buckwheat, like quinoa and amaranth, is a pseudocereal, which means that it’s used similarly to other grains but has a different composition. It doesn’t contain any gluten and is higher in protein. 100 g of buckwheat flour contains 12.6 g of protein. This type of flour contains fiber that helps your digestion and lowers bad cholesterol. It’s an excellent way to put more health benefits into your diet!

What can you top these healthy buckweat pancakes with?

Those who love savory breakfasts will like spreading some plain Greek yogurt on their healthy buckwheat pancakes. Add a slice of ham or turkey breast, parsley and sprinkle with some black pepper for a tasty delight.

As you know, what you eat helps you reach your goal, especially if you want to gain muscle mass. If this what you want to achieve, spread some peanut butter and put some banana slices on your pancakes. Peanut butter is typically 26% protein and contains good fat. It’s like sipping from the fountain of youth for your muscles!

Or is your goal rather to slim down your physique? You can still eat pancakes! With a few strawberry and kiwi slices on top of some unsweetened cream cheese, you can still satisfy your sweet tooth without having an impact on your physique. You can also opt for pancakes sprinkled with a teaspoon of sugar and some fresh-squeezed lemon juice.

Prefer something a bit more traditional? Maple syrup is a great way to add flavor to this dish.
