Absolutely Delicious!! Gluten-Free Pancakes

Looking for gluten-free recipes? Try buckwheat as a perfect ingredient to substitute wheat and other glutinous flours.  Despite its name, buckwheat is neither a wheat nor a gluten, it is the fruit seeds from a plant, high in calcium and protein.
Buckwheat flour was the original flour used to make crepes.  So for a little gluten-free delight, give this recipe a try:

Gluten-Free Buckwheat Crepes
Servings: 6 crepes

- 1/2 cup buckwheat flour
- A pinch of sea salt
- 1 tbsp arrowroot or quinoa flour
- 1 lg egg
- 1 cup of water
- 1 tbsp unsalted butter

Whisk the water, butter, and egg together and then mix with dry ingredients.  Set aside for 15-20 minutes.  Heat a pan and melt some butter. Once heated, pour some batter into the pan and rotate the pan to get the batter nice and smooth… you don’t want it to be too thick.  Return the pan to heat for a couple of minutes until the top is hard.  Flip the crepe over and let the other side brown.
Serve this delicious treat up with your favourite fruit mixture, maple syrup, or chocolate sauce.  Enjoy!
