These thin pancakes are worth the little bit of extra time they take to make. You can replace the pear with thinly sliced apple if you prefer.

Makes: 4 large pancakes



  • 3 pears, cored & thinly sliced
  • Juice 1 lemon
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • ¼ cup tapioca flour
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon, plus extra to serve
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup Greek yoghurt
  • 3 tbsp honey
  1. Add sliced pear to bowl and drizzle with lemon juice, then set aside.
  2. To another bowl, add egg and almond milk and beat until combined. Gradually add buckwheat flour, tapioca flour and cinnamon and whisk continuously to smooth pancake batter.
  3. Add small amount of butter to large frypan and heat over medium heat. Pour in enough batter to coat bottom of pan. Immediately place about 6 pear slices in batter and push down slightly. Cook for 1 minute this side then carefully flip pancake and cook for a further 1 minute on other side. Continue process until you have used up batter and pear mix.
