Gluten Free Buckwheat Pancakes (Lactose Free option FODMAP suitable)

I made these for the kids for breakfast the other morning and these can be made with milk and butter or lactose free alternative.  They were quite nice, the kids liked them, not too sweet as we were adding toppings ontop.  I did a little vanilla sugar (leaving a vanilla pod in caster sugar) and I also did a strawberry coulis which i just put strawberries in the food processor with a tablespoon of maple syrup (as on the low FODMAP diet you cant have honey).

Buckwheat Pancakes (Gluten Free, Lactose Free, low FODMAP)

1 cup buckwheat flour

1 tsp gluten free baking powder

2 Tblsp maple syrup

1/3 tsp sea salt

1 egg, beaten

1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or zymil milk but find unsweetend almond milk has under 1 gram of sugar compared to 12grams with zymil)

1 Tblsp dairy free spread (I use Nuttelex) melted

Topping option

1 punnet of strawberries to make a coulis (processed in food processor to make a runny sauce adding a tablespoon of maple syrup or 1 tablespoon of gluten free icing sugar)

zymil cream.

Combine all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl then add wet ingredients and mix well.  Preheat non stick frypan and grease with olive oil spray.  Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup and scoop onto hot pan.  Cook until golden brown and flip and cook other side, serve with topping of your choice.  If you dont want to use toppings but want a more sweater pancake then add an extra tablespoon of maple syrup.      Another option for this, which I have read about but havent done, is pouring a homemade spaghetti sauce over the top for a lunch or dinner savoury option!   Might have to give it ago and let you know how it goes.
