Buckwheat pancakes for winter breakky
Try these banana and honey buckwheat pancakes for breakky this week! I used buckwheat flour as it is more nutrient dense than white flour. Despite its name, buckwheat is not wheat. It's a seed, which means it is gluten-free and safe for people with gluten sensitivity.
It’s also the perfect ingredient for balancing the heaviness of kapha tendency that sets in at winter-time, so is a great pantry item to have on hand when you are craving things like pancakes. Kapha dosha is increased in cold, wet and soggy weather conditions and should be monitored as we approach winter. Signs are heavy head, runny and blocked nose and ENT, fatigue. If you have any of these signs and want to discuss this, or want to learn more about seasonal eating plans please contact us here.
