GF Vegan Breakers! Cream of Buckwheat + Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

Don't be scared yet! I was standing in the cereal aisle with a bag of oats in one hand and cream of buckwheat in the other. Should I dive into the unknown world of cream of buckwheat? What if it's horrible, and tastes nothing like cream of wheat? I shoveled out the four dollars and decided to try it. I made a bowl of it this morning and was thouroughly impressed! It doesn't taste exactly like cream of wheat, but it's pretty darn close. And it's the perfect canvas to add flavourings such as nuts and fruit, etc. I had a small bowl of this and seriously could not bring myself to eat lunch and barely even dinner, it's sooo filling. Cream of Buckwheat would be a good thing to have around when you find yourself on a rampage pecking at every edible thing in sight. It stops hunger in an instant.

Added in: vanilla, cinnamon, cloves, honey, pistachios, pinch of salt

Apple Cinnamon Pancakes
We made the best pancakes yesterday! Courtesy of apple and cinnamon:

1/4 cup applesauce
1/2 cup almond milk
1 cup Gluten-free flour blend (see substitutions tab)
2 tbsp safflower oil
1 flax egg
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Chopped apples

Combine dry ingredients in large bowl. Set aside. Mix together almond milk, oil, egg and vanilla. Mix into dry ingredients. Fold in applesauce. Spoon onto frying pan. Place thinly sliced banana on each cake. Cook on low heat (this is important or else they will fall apart easily) until golden brown. Makes 5-6 large pancakes.
