Vanilla Buckwheat Pancakes with Lemon Honey and Almonds


I’m on holiday at the moment and a great way that I pass time is to get in the kitchen and get creating!

 I’ve had a bag of buckwheat in the cupboard for quiet awhile now and thought it was about time to crack into it and make something. I made a couple of jars of  lemon honey  a recipe of my granny’s and thought it would be great to incorporate that into the dish i was making. So that’s when i decided it was time for afternoon pancakes. Pancakes are great you can have them for breakfast, lunch or dinner with what ever toppings you like sweet or savory.

Here is a great Gluten-Free recipe for fluffy delicious pancakes, you wouldn’t even realize that they are gluten-free.
