I make a conscious effort to offer many different substitute flour/meals to wheat. This allows the family to enjoy a variety of different nutritional foods, tastes & textures.
Buckwheat is a fantastic substitute for plain flour with minimal change in flavour or consistency.
No refined sugar needed either thanks to natures antioxidant and fibre rich blueberries bursting with sweetness.
We have additionally sweetened the pancakes with a nutritionally dense plant-based immune booster powder by Mavella Superfoods – As a reader of GingerNotes, you can purchase the Mavella Superfoods range with an exclusive discount code: gingernotes15
I have used Mavella’s Veggie Powder to create a really soft little muffin packed with hidden veggies for those fussy eaters. You can find the recipe here: Veggie Boost Muffins
Blueberry Buckwheat Pancake Recipe
- 1/2 cup Buckwheat Flour
- 1/2 cup Almond Flour
- 1 cup Rice Milk (If you can enjoy oat milk this makes a great alternative)
- 2 tsp Flax Meal
- 1 tsp G/F Baking Powder
- 1/2 cup Frozen Organic Blueberries or fresh if in season
- Optional: 1 tsp concentrated veg/fruit powder (I used Mavella Superfoods Immune Boost)
Add all ingredients except blueberries into a blender and blitz until smooth.
Heat a non stick fry pan with a little oil or desired spread (we use Nuttelex Vegan Spread) and poor mini pancakes. Add the blueberries to the top of the pancakes while cooking. Once surface looks like it is less “wet” or somewhat cooked, it is time to flip.
Allow to cool on a paper towel so that blueberries no longer hold steamy heat.
Serve with a little Natural Yoghurt and additonal sliced fruit if preferred and watch the family gobble up these delicious pancakes before you have time to tidy the kitchen.

“Exhausted and run down caring for a newborn, I needed support to get my health & wellbeing back on track. Simone’s post-natal package was so much more than a food planner, she provided lifestyle support based on her experience as mum, which was fantastic and exactly what I needed. Loved it & highly recommend to all new mummies”
