Light and fluffy, gluten free Buckwheat pancakes that combine crunchy, toasted almonds with soft, sweet honey roasted peaches.
It’s Monday morning. Your alarm goes off and you have to get out of bed. Isn’t that just the worst thing ever?
You could be a grumpy pants about it. Or you could make these pancakes…and then proceed to have the greatest day ever.
You know why? Because they have peaches, brown sugar, almonds and honey in them. What is better than that I ask you?
Nothing, that’s what.
You know what else? These gluten free pancakes are healthy and much lower in carbs and higher in protein than your run of the mill pancakes. These puppies will keep your stomach happily full until lunch time guys!
The creamy ricotta cheese gives these gluten free pancakes a rich and smooth texture, while the toasted almonds provide a surprise crunch! It’s like a party (or a fiesta, since I am trying to be Mexican these days remember?) in your mouth! To top it all off (literally!) you have the warm, sweet peaches to keep the party going all day long. Mr. FFF said “It’s like having super fresh jam on top of a pancake. Just so ya guys know, he ate cold, leftover pancakes for dinner the next day….BY CHOICE. They were that yum-a-licious.
Have you guys ever had buckwheat? Do not mistake this for buckteeth, those are not good. Buckwheat, however, is amazing. It’s got this deep, nutty, rich flavor that I have yet to find in any other flour. And, as I mentioned, it’s gluten free! In addition to all these wonderful characteristics, buckwheat makes very light and airy baked goods. With all those super duper qualities, You could basically give it a cape. It’s practically a super hero. I can see the headlines now: “Captain Buckwheat saves Mr. Gluten intolerant from Evil Dr. Spelt Flour yet again!” Am I taking this to far? Yes? I’ll stop.
The just of this story is that I want to eat these pancakes every day of my life, and then have really awesome days everyday of my life. You too? Good.
P.s if you like spelt flour that’s cool, I still totally love you. I just think it tastes funny, and makes bread that looks like it’s from outer space. 🙂
