Buckwheat is one of the ingredients that I have loved for years. However, somehow I always forget it. I remember to use it only when my fridge is empty, and I don’t have anything else to work with. I like to replace usual bread with these pancakes or buckwheat “wrap” (recipe here).

The avocado topping is optional, and you can use whatever “sandwich” topping you prefer. No strict rules here and you can go creative!

Why I love buckwheat? It’s one of the best gluten-free “seeds” (that’s right, even though some people say it’s a grain, it is a SEED). That’s why many people who are sensitive to grains can still enjoy buckwheat. My body is quite sensitive to all the grains, but buckwheat works perfectly for me. Also, I highly recommend to soak them because then it’s easier to digest this amazing ingredient!

Nutritional information (per one pancake, without topping): 56,5 kcal, Protein: 2,3 g, Net Carbs: 8,5 g, Fat: 1,23 g


  • 1/2 cup raw buckwheat (soak* overnight or at least few hours)
  • 2 tbsp raw buckwheat flour
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • pinch of chili flakes (optional)

  1. Whisk together all the pancake ingredients. Let the mixture stand at room temperature about 10-15 minutes.
  2. Grease the non-stick pan with a little bit of oil (use only a few teardrops) in medium heat. Pour about 1 tbsp of batter. Cook the pancakes a few minutes on each side (the key is not to touch it at the beginning, and you can turn it once it stays together). Repeat the process with the rest of the batter.
  3. Smash the avocado with a fork. Season with salt & pepper. Add lime juice.
  4. Serve the pancakes with smashed your avocado mixture, extra avocado, salad leaves, and sesame seeds.
