Number of Servings: 4


    1 large sweet apple, peeled, cored and cut in thin slices
    2 tsp cinnamon
    2 Tbsp Sucanat (or brown sugar)
    1/3 cup mashed banana (1 medium banana)
    1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
    1 tsp pure vanilla extract
    2 Tbsp maple syrup
    1 Tbsp ground flaxseeds OR 1 tsp finely ground chia seeds
    3/4 cup non-dairy milk
    3/4 cup + 1 tbsp raw buckwheat flour (I processed raw buckwheat groats into flour) OR oat flour (process rolled oats into flour)
    1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
    2 tsp baking powder
    1/4 tsp baking soda


1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 10 inch springform pan or pie plate with a circle of parchment paper; then grease both the pan and the paper to prevent sticking.

2. In a small bowl, combine the apple, cinnamon and Sucanat (or brown sugar). Toss with a spoon until all the slices are coated. Place the slices in a single layer over the bottom of the pan.

3. In a medium bowl, mash the banana. Now whisk together the mashed banana, applesauce, vanilla, maple syrup, milk, and ground flax/chia until combined. In a large bowl, sift together the remaining ingredients. Add the wet mixture and stir until well combined. Pour batter over the apples and smooth.

4. Bake the pancake at 350F for about 40-45 minutes until the top is golden. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. Once cool, run a knife along the outside edge of the pancake to loosen it. Remove spring form. Place a plate on top of the cake and gently flip over. Remove parchment from the apples. Serve with your desired toppings.
