Strawberry-Almond Buckwheat Pancakes

Hello friends! Did you miss me yesterday? I was celebrating Mother’s Day with my fam a day early since I’m on call for the next 24 hours…nothing like dropping everything and having to high-tail it to the hospital IF I get that call! I’ll be posting a little MD recap tomorrow to show you guys all the tasty eats! I was definitely reminded of where my foodie genes come from that’s for sure! ;)

I want to wish all the bloggy mamas out there a HUGE Happy Mother’s Day and if you haven’t done so already…call your madre and tell her that you love her! It’s ok…I’ll wait!

For this Pancake Sunday, I couldn’t help but have love on the brain. Why is it that anytime “love” is associated with a food, strawberries are the first thing to come to mind? Am I the only one who does this??

Anywho, these babies turned out to be some of the BEST pancakes ever (I’m sure I’ve said that like a dozen times at least…but seriously, you HAVE to try this recipe)!

Strawberry-Almond Buckwheat Pancakes: (serves 1)

  • 1/4 cup buckwheat flour (ground from raw buckwheat groats)
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 egg white (I used 3 tablespoons liquid egg whites)
  • 1/4 cup diced strawberries
1. Heat a skillet to medium heat and spray with cooking spray.
2. Stir flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon with a whisk to combine.
3. Whisk egg white until doubled in size and white and fluffy (I used my Magic Bullet)
4. Stir milk and almond extract into the flour mixture until just combined.
5. Fold in the egg whites and then gently stir in the diced strawberries.
6. Pour batter into greased skillet (I made three smallish cakes)and allow to cook 4-5             minutes or until the tops start to bubble.
7. Flip pancakes and continue cooking for 2-3 minutes until done.
8. Top with desired toppings!

I topped my strawberry shortcakes pancakes with “whipped cream” (Greek yogurt sweetened with a couple of drops of stevia), slivered almonds, unsweetened coconut…because coconut goes good on EVERYTHING, and a bit of maple syrup (the real stuff…don’t skimp!)

The warm bits of gooey strawberry scattered throughout with the hint of almond extract was the perfect combo for my plate-o-love!

Oh yeah, if I was a real mama (sadly, the adoption of a feline doesn’t qualify me for tax deductions), this is what I’d want to wake up to the morning of Mother’s Day. Hmm, if only Tiger had opposable thumbs…

How are you/did you show your mama love for Mother’s Day this year?

  10. We had our Mother’s Day in March – but I rang my mum a while ago to wish her a happy (American) Mother’s Day – she was really touched!
    The pancakes look delicious :-)

  11. Ohh pancake Sunday. How I wish I had stovetop!!! Gorgeous photos as always and yayy for mother’s day :)

  12. Those pancakes looks really good!! I always want to make Pancake Sunday a tradition too when I read your blog :)

  13. Thank you! My kids showed me some major love! I got a letter from Jay (sent from his teacher) in the mail and it made me cry. Max is a momma’s boys so their has been tons of love from him today and I have an amazing man by my side, that always shows me major love for being the mother of his children. Today has been great…oh and I ended it with socca pizza, so really, could there be anything better? I hope you had a great day and breakfast looks amazing!

    • Awww, Sarena! That sounds like the best Mother’s Day ever! And ending with socca pizza puts it over the top for sure!

      Love that Jay’s teacher mailed out the cards! There really is something extra special and surprising about receiving things in the mail…or am I just old school? ;)

    Those pancakes are calling my name ;)

  16. Pancakes are my favorite breakfast and these look so delish!

    I had a relaxing and laid back Mother’s Day this year. My hubby let me sleep in while he made the kids breakfast and then we went over to my parents house to spend the day with my mom. We brought her an organic lettuce plant so she’ll have fresh salads all summer. Then we made some vegan appetizers together, enjoyed some wine and just had a great family day :)

  17. I think I just drooled all over my keyboard. Seriously. Those are awesome looking pancakes.

  18. Mm, I want to start cooking with buckwheat (I bought a bag of flour I haven’t opened up yet)–this looks like a GREAT way to start (I mean, how can you go wrong with pancakes??!)

    • Just so you know (and I totally didn’t when I bought my first bag of buckwheat flour), it doesn’t taste the same as when you grind it fresh from the groats. The best way I know to describe things that are made with prepared buckwheat flours is…earthy. I’ve found that for sweet recipes, I have to add a bit more sweetener than I normally would but for savory type recipes, I don’t really mind the taste. I made some savory spinach pancakes in this post (http://kissmybroccoli.wordpress.com/2011/02/06/green-gold/) and thought the flavor was perfect.

  19. Oh my goodness these look awesome. Look so forward to making these. Thanks for the recipe!

  20. I LOVE strawberries in pancakes! These look amazing!

  21. Carie says:

    These look amazing! I am a huge pancake fan! Will have to try them soon!

  22. Ma Ma Megan says:

    Oh my pancakes! I’mma make these with a flax egg :)

  23. Plate o love is right! These pancakes look amazing! I’m on a huge buckwheat kick right now.
    My favorite is just boiling them in water like you would rice. When it’s done, I’ve been adding coconut milk + some jam (strawberry is my favorite). Holy deliciousness!
