Buckwheat Vegan Pancakes

Serves one (makes around 6 pancakes)

You will need:
2 tbsps ground flaxseed
6 tbsp water

1/2 cup (60g) buckwheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup mashed banana (1 average sized banana)
1/2 cup almond milk
2 tbsps lemon juice

Form your flax eggs by combining the ground flaxseed and the water in a cup. Mix well and leave to gel in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, or until the flaxseed has become thick and gelatinous. Meanwhile, combine the almond milk and lemon juice in a cup and allow to curdle slightly to become buttermilk, this generally takes 20-30 minutes. Sift the flour, baking soda and baking powder into a bowl, and add the mashed banana, almond buttermilk, vanilla extract and flax eggs. Combine well and leave to sit. Preheat a frying pan to a medium heat and add a little coconut oil, and then add approximately 1/4 cup of mixture to the centre of the pan. Allow to cook for 2-3 minutes, or until bubbles form on the upside of the pancake, then flip and allow the other side to cook. Repeat for the rest of the batter, then enjoy!
