Buckwheat Almond Pancakes

Buckwheat Almond Pancakes

Buckwheat Almond Pancakes are hearty and satisfying! Printables included for homemade make ahead mixes! Wonderful frozen too!

Buckwheat Almond Pancakes is one of the mixes I love to have on hand for easy Sunday morning pancakes. These are especially hearty too.

I use either pecan or almond meal; whatever I have on hand.  It is a very similar taste with either one.  

Mornings are just too busy to start from scratch but that doesn’t mean with some preparation ahead of time we can’t still have our homemade pancakes.  

I have even been making these the past several years for my now grown kids as Christmas gifts. They are happy to have ready to make mixes and I love doing that for them. 😊

See how I use it as a mix below. I also included a free printable so you can make your own mixes and add the directions to your bags.

This griddle is my favorite way to cook them.  It is big enough to cook 6 at a time and washes up so easily.

Why I Love This Recipe

They are relatively healthy compared to other pancakes.

They are freezable.

Easy to make with simple ingredients.

They are great in lunchboxes.

They are easy to pack.

Ideal for meal-prep and make ahead type of meals.

They are child friendly.

They are super tasty.

Can these Be Made Ahead of Time?

Yes!

Make up the dry ingredients in a handy homemade mix so all you need to do is add the wet ingredients, stir up the batter then cook.

Or make the pancakes and then freeze them.

Can These Be Frozen?

Yes!

Freeze individually on a baking sheet and then add to a Ziplock bag to grab one or two at a time.

You can also add several to a Ziplock bag together and freeze that way. Just be sure they are totally cooled first.

Thaw overnight in the refrigerator or at 50% power in the microwave. They thaw very quickly and easily.

The Almonds

The recipe is named Buckwheat Almond Pancakes but pecan meal is just as good. If it is easier to get pecan meal, use that. You can even Make your own Almond or Pecan Meal.

The Buttermilk

You need buttermilk for this recipe but you do not have to buy it special.

Just add 1 Tbsp of vinegar or lemon juice for each cup of buttermilk needed and then add the milk.

In this case, add 2 Tbsp of vinegar or lemon juice and then fill to the 2 cup line with milk and let it sit about 5 minutes or until you see bubbles forming; now you have buttermilk! You can use dairy, coconut or almond; I have used all of these.

I imagine you could also use rice, cashew or others but I have not personally used those to know for sure.

Can they be made Dairy Free?

Yes!

When making the buttermilk, use a non-dairy milk as noted in the directions above.

Whisk together but do not over mix. You want the bubbles from the buttermilk to remain. That is what makes them light and fluffy.

To Use as a Homemade Mix

I just take an hour or so every several months and make several of our favorite recipes into quart size bags so Sunday mornings all I need to do is pour the dry together with the wet. It saves a lot of pulling out, measuring and putting away.

When I make several together like that with similar ingredients, it is really very easy. Buckwheat Almond Pancakes is one of the recipes I always include in that line up.

I have typed up the directions to print out and tape onto the bags. That way I know what they are and what else is needed to make them so I don’t even have to pull out the recipe.
