This vegan and refined sugar-free Tahini & Date Sauce makes a great alternative to any store-bought processed dessert sauces. The recipe is very easy, you can prepare quickly in minutes. We love to drizzle it over pancakes – try our: Green Pancakes or Sourdough Pancakes, cakes – try our: Flourless Chocolate Cake, but it would also work wonderfully with ice-creams or drizzle over a fruit salad.
Chocolate Buckwheat Pancakes are one of our favourite weekend breakfast/brunch options. This recipe is vegan-friendly, gluten and refined sugar-free. These pancakes are very light and have an earthy and nutty flavour thanks to buckwheat flour, raw cacao and maca powder. Natural sweetness comes from dates, which also help to bind the batter, so there is no need for eggs. As you can see on pictures, they have a great – ‘the crust of the moon-like’ texture.
These pancakes are delicious, especially when topped with fresh fruits, nuts and/or seeds and a drizzle of maple syrup or your favourite sauce. We served them with banana, almond flakes, hemp seeds, raw cacao nibs and our Tahini & Date Sauce – click to see the recipe.

As we are eating pancakes on a regular basis, we’ve started to add green leafy vegetables (as spinach or kale) and sometimes herbs (fresh basil, coriander or parsley) to the pancake batter.
