These nutritious and delicious pancakes have no added gums or starches and they are rice free, and of course free of the top 8 allergens.


Dry ingredients

  • 50g (1.8oz) Buckwheat seeds
  • 1 pinch Rock salt
  • 60g (2.1oz) Coconut flour
  • 50g (1.8oz) Sorghum flour
  • 1 teaspoon Bicarbonate of soda
  • 1.5 teaspoons Cream of tartar

Wet ingredients

  • 1.5 Pears or apples, peeled and cored
  • 1 Vanilla bean, seeds of
  • 100g (3.5fl.oz) Pure maple syrup, honey, or rice bran syrup
  • 60g (2.1fl.oz) Oil (e.g. Melted coconut oil, sunflower oil, canola oil)
  • 1 teaspoon Apple cider vinegar
  • 300g (300ml) Milk of choice (rice milk)


Step 1. Place buckwheat and rock salt into Thermomix (TM) bowl. Mill for 1 minute 30 seconds, speed 9.
Step 2. Add sorghum, coconut, bicarbonate of soda and cream of tartar and mix for 15 seconds, speed 4. Tip dry mixture into a separate bowl.
Step 3. Put pear or apple, vanilla seeds, maple syrup, oil and vinegar into TM bowl. Puree for 15 seconds, speed 9. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and puree for a further 10 seconds before adding the milk. Then blend for 10 seconds, speed 4.
Step 4. Set TM to speed 3 and gradually add the flour mixture to the liquid. Mix until combined (20-30 seconds). For thinner pancakes, add 50ml more milk or water and mix for a further 10 seconds.
Step 5. Preheat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat with a dollop of safe margarine (e.g., nuttlex). Pour tablespoon sized amounts of batter into the frying pan and shake the pan a little to allow the batter to spread thinly.
Step 6. Flip the pancakes once bubbles burst across the surface. Fry on the other side for a further three minutes or until cooked through.
Step 7. Enjoy with a generous helping of berry compote or fresh fruit, with a drizzling of pure maple syrup. Perfect!
