If you are looking for a gluten-free and dairy-free alternative to regular pancakes, check out this delicious recipe to create fluffy and nutritious pancakes in minutes. Buckwheat has a high concentration of minerals such as copper and magnesium which are responsible for production of red blood cells and brain health. It is rich in fibre and protein and is a healthier replacement to white flour. Buckwheat flour can be used in many recipes such as breads, muffins and cookies. The B vitamins present in buckwheat supports your nervous system and helps to absorb fats and proteins. Basically, buckwheat is a gluten free option that is full of nutrients and also helps you to lose weight.
