Fructose Malabsorption Recipes: Buckwheat Banana Pancakes

Buckwheat Banana Pancakes__No Sugarless Gum

During the first phase of the Mediator Release Test diet, I was having difficulty finding enough to eat.  This is one of the great things I came up with (based on a recipe from the Adirondack Chick) to have for breakfast that stayed true to my personal food plan.

These are great sprinkled with a cinnamon/dextrose mixture, or with some pure maple syrup!


  • 1 cup of buckwheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons of dextrose
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 cup of milk (I use goat milk)
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 2 tablespoons of peanut butter


Place a skillet on the stove over medium heat.

Mash the banana, then beat with an electric mixer until there are no more lumps.

Add in the rest of the ingredients and mix until smooth.Buckwheat Banana Pancakes2__No Sugarless Gum

Spray the skillet with cooking spray (I’m looking for a safer way to do this, I don’t like using cooking spray but coating the pan with oil hasn’t worked with these) and add a 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake.

When the bubbles on the top side of the pancake start to disappear and leave holes, flip over on the other side and cook until golden brown.

Transfer to a rack to cool.

These hold up pretty well in the fridge for about a week.  Just zap in the microwave each morning for 45 seconds-1 minute to reheat.

Elimination Diet safe: No.
