  • 400g buckwheat flour
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 4 egg whites
  • Tsp baking powered
  • 1 Tsp ground turmeric or tumeric paste
  • 200ml almond milk (add more if required for batter consistency.Served with a berry compote, coconut yoghurt and toasted almond flakes or coconut shards


Berry Compote ingredients:



  1. Preheat the oven to 160C.
  2. In a bowl beat the egg whites into a stiff peak.
  3. In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking powder, tumeric, salt, egg yolks and almond milk to a mixable batter consistency. ( add more milk if too think)
  4. Then gently fold in the egg whites.
  5. Heat a pan to medium, (if possible use a pan that can be placed in the oven, otherwise leave the handle hanging out and wrap it in a tea towel), coat with a bit of coconut oil scoop about 1/4 cup batter to make each pancake. Once a little smoke starts to become visible flip them, and cook for a couple minutes. To finish, place the pan in the oven for 3-5 minutes until the pancakes rise and cooked through.
  6. Serve with the berry compote, crushed nuts/or coconut flakes and coconut yoghurt.


To make the berry compote place the berries, water and spices in a small pot and bring to the boil. In a glass combine the gelatin with 2 tablespoons of cold water, then add to the berry mixture and simmer until it becomes thick enough to serve. Beef gelatin has amazing gut healing benefits and it’s completely tasteless. I love this brand!
