Made these bad boys for Canadian fathers day breaky today. They were a big hit with everyone, especially the father. Decadent enough to be dessert but healthy enough to call it breakfast.

Recipe:

2 cups buckwheat flour
1/2 cup ground hazelnut
1/4 cup heaped cocoa powder
1/4 ground flax
1 TBS brown rice syrup (or honey)
Stevia to taste or 1 TBS raw sugar
3 cups water

Mix the ground flax meal with the water and let sit (make sure you do this first as flax acts as the binding agent).
Mix dry ingredients.
Mix wet ingredients.
Add flax and combine dry and wet.

Grease a large skillet.
Pour batter into pan with 3/4 cup measure and tilt pan around until you have evenly distributed the batter. Cook for about 2-3 minutes, flip carefully and cook the other side for a minute or two.

Peanut butter syrup:

1/2 cup natural peanut butter
2 TBS coconut oil
1/4 honey
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup water

Cook over medium heat stirring continuously until it thickens.
