Buckwheat Banana Pancakes

In Grandmother's Kitchen we are trying new recipes all the time and experimenting with some of the products available that offer a gluten free version of eating. The flour that we used for these pancakes is gluten free Arrowhead Mills, Organic Buckwheat flour. This is a simple no fuss recipe and we didn't use a rising agent or any sweetener other than the natural sweetness from the banana.

This forms a flat but flavorful pancake. We experimented with this recipe and did a couple other versions, one of which included grating up an apple and stirring it into the batter. We found that slicing the banana rounds on top was a bit 'fussy' and time consuming when cooking for a group. Instead of slicing the banana into rounds, we found that it worked well to mash the banana instead and stir it into the batter.

When cooking for a hungry group, double the ingredients and if you want the apple just grate it into the batter. If you find the batter too thick, just add a bit more milk. This is a very nutritious and no-fuss pancake.
