This recipe uses Buckwheat flour which is highly nutritious & considered a ‘superfood’. We have tried to make this as healthy as possible without compromising taste. For example, we substitute white sugar with apple puree & brown sugar. If you omit the brown sugar, the sugar drops from 14.6g to 10.9g per serve.

While this is a significant drop, it still isn't 'low sugar', but the sugar isn't refined, coming from bananas & apple puree. Omitting the brown sugar will affect the taste, but the choice is yours.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups buckwheat flour
  • 2 tbsp. Chopped walnuts
  • ½ cup low fat milk
  • 3 tbsp. Light margarine spread (or Butter)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla essence
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. bi-carb soda
  • 3 large bananas, very, very ripe, mashed
  • ½ cup low fat natural yoghurt
  • 1 small tub (140g) apple puree
