Buckwheat, an excellent grain for weight loss

Buckwheat in Ayurveda is considered light, so it’s used in pastries

In France, the crêpe is a lighter and thinner version of a pancake and it’s traditionally made with buckwheat for both savory and sweet versions.

This recipe is for those of you who want to have something different than oatmeal occasionally.

Many years ago, I took my first Ayurvedic cooking class with Maharishi University of Management and I tried this buckwheat pancake recipe and loved it!

Here’s what you’re going to need:

1 1/2 cup buckwheat flour
2 Tbsp cornstarch
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cardamom
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp sunflower oil
1 1/2 cup almond milk
3 small sweet apples, cored and shredded

Here’s how to prepare the pancakes:

In a bowl mix all dry ingredients
Combine milk and oil and add to dry ingredients. Mix into a smooth, thick batter with a whisk. Add shredded apples.
Place a skillet on medium heat. Once hot, lightly coat with oil. Pour a cup of batter onto the skillet. Depending on the size of the skillet, you may pour 1 or 2 more cups. when the side of the pancakes are becoming hard, flip them over with a spatula. cook both sides until golden brown.
Enjoy with a little maple syrup!
