Oat, Buckwheat, and Cornmeal Pancakes

Oat, Buckwheat, and Cornmeal Pancakes

If you don’t have buckwheat on hand, these whole-food, plant-based pancakes are just as tasty using an extra portion of oat flour!


  • 1/2 cup buckwheat flour or you may use 1/2 oat flour instead of 1/2 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/4 cup oat flour (3/4 cup total if no buckwheat flour is being used). You can create this with rolled oats in a high-speed blender.
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 medium-coarse cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 very ripe banana
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons date paste or maple syrup
  • 2 cups plant milk; start with 1 1/2 and add more if you like a thinner batter
  • Blueberries to add if desired.


Mix well the dry ingredients in a small bowl with a whisk or fork. In a separate large bowl mash the banana, add the wet ingredients and stir well. Add the dry ingredients and mix until well blended.

Heat a nonstick pan or griddle to medium-high.  A drop of water should sizzle. Pour the size that you like and cook until bubbles form and light brown on the bottom when slightly lifted. Scatter blueberries around on the pancakes if desired.  Turn over and cook another few minutes. 

Serve with fresh berries on top, and/or maple syrup or heated fruit jam. May also serve with nut yogurt sweetened with date paste.
