Banana Buckwheat Pancake topped with Chocolate Chia

As a kid, I loved visiting America where these style pancakes were a novelty for me. At the time we only made Crepes in the UK. My mum used to buy the pancake batter to bring home as a souvenir!

When I was first vegan, I just gave up this lovely stodgy treat, until I realized I could use banana as an egg replacement.
Buckwheat works really well in this recipe.

This is a satisfying healthy breakfast. A great start to the day. You could equally have it as a snack or dessert anytime.

I love these thick and fluffy american style pancakes. I usually make extra so the boys can snack on them throughout the day.

Here, I have topped with the delicious chocolate chia, a dollop of coconut yogurt and some fresh strawberries. Perfect!
