Making pancakes with whole grains will add heart-healthy fibre to your diet. Add fresh fruit to top your pancakes to make a delicious breakfast full of vitamins and minerals; the perfect start to these fading summer days.
Buckwheat flour is a high fibre, high protein alternative to power up your morning. It is also higher in many essential vitamins and minerals when compared to white flour alternatives.
We hope you enjoy them!

Why use buckwheat flour?
Diets that contain buckwheat have been linked to lowered risk of developing high cholesterol and high blood pressure. Buckwheat’s beneficial effects are due in part to its rich supply of flavonoids, which protect against disease, and act as antioxidants. Buckwheat is also a good source of magnesium, improving blood flow and nutrient delivery while lowering blood pressure.
