Buckwheat is a very good source of manganese and a good source of magnesium, copper, and dietary fiber. Buckwheat contains two flavonoids with significant health-promoting actions: rutin and quercitin. The protein in buckwheat is a high quality protein, containing all eight essential amino acids, including lysine.

Significant Cardiovascular Benefits for Postmenopausal Women

Eating a serving of whole grains, such as buckwheat, at least 6 times each week is an especially good idea for postmenopausal women with high cholesterol, high blood pressure or other signs of cardiovascular disease (CVD).

A 3-year prospective study of over 220 postmenopausal women with CVD, published in the American Heart Journal, shows that those eating at least 6 servings of whole grains each week experienced both:

  • Slowed progression of atherosclerosis, the build-up of plaque that narrows the vessels through which blood flows, and
  • Less progression in stenosis, the narrowing of the diameter of arterial passageways.

The women’s intake of fiber from fruits, vegetables and refined grains was not associated with a lessening in CVD progression.

Vegan Buckwheat Pancakes with Strawberry Syrup

Vegan Buckwheat Pancakes with Strawberry Syrup

This recipe was 'Veganized' from a Buckwheat Pancake recipe on Bob's Red Mill at Bobsredmill.com

What you will need for this recipe:

    For the Syrup:
  • 1 Pint of fresh Strawberries
  • 1/3 Cup Agave Nector or Maple Syrup
  • For the Pancakes:
  • 1/4 Cup Warm Water (110 degrees)
  • 1 Cup Spelt Flour (or Gluten Free mix)
  • 1/2 Cup Buckwheat Flour (I used Bob's Red Mill Organic)
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 2 Tbs. Ground Flax meal mixed with 6 Tbs. Water (Egg replacement)
  • 1 Cup Almond Milk or water
  • 3 Tbs. Agave Nector or Maple Syrup
  • 1 Tbs. Olive Oil or melted Vegan Butter
  • 2 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1/4 Cup hot water (if needed to thin batter)

Instructions

For the Pancakes:

Heat your 1/4 Cup water to 105 - 110 degrees and stir in the yeast. Add in 1 Tbs. of Agave Nector. Let sit for a few minutes to grow the yeast.

Mix together all other ingredients except the oil and hot water.

Stir in the Yeast/Water.

When the flour is mixed well, add in the oil and enough hot water to make a thin batter

Let the pancake batter sit for 30 minutes.

Drop 1/2 Cup scoops of batter onto a greased hot fry pan and cook at a medium heat.

Check the underside of each pancake and flip cake when the first side just starts to brown.

Cook a few more minutes and then remove from heat.

For the Strawberry Sauce:

Mix 1 pint of fresh sliced Strawberries with 1/4 cup Agave Syrup. Warm syrup over low heat until the strawberries are slightly tender. Serve over top of pancakes.

      They were thick and full of flavor but not overly sweet. I let the Strawberries add the sour/sweet. Funny I’d never had them since I was about 5 or 6 at my best friend’s house one morning and they were awful :0
      The recipe here is far from that with a mild buckwheat taste, mostly just good hearty grain and the powerful tart Strawberry.
      Hope you try them. They’ll adjust to tastes I’m sure. *I’m loving your ‘flax-eggs’ now. Use them all the time!!! The original recipe didn’t call for eggs but I said, “What the heck, they can only add to the nutrition?”
      Thanks.
      ;)
