Buckwheat Pancakes with Chia Raspberry Jam

These gorgeous fibre-rich buckwheat pancakes with chia raspberry jam make a delicious afternoon snack with a cuppa or weekend breakfast. Buckwheat flour is made from a fruit seed, so it is gluten-free and higher in fibre and protein compared to regular wheat flour - so they make a filling snack that will help keep your blood sugar levels nice and balanced. Buckwheat is not related to wheat. Making your own jam with chia seeds is a great way to enjoy jam without all the added sugars. Chia seeds are jam-packed with dietary fibre and beneficial omega-3 essential fatty acids, so they help promote cardiovascular and bowel health, along with supporting brain and nervous system function. Omega-3 fats are also important for soft, supple healthy skin. Chia jam is also delicious spread on wholegrain toast, healthy muffins and scones, or try mixing a spoonful through natural yoghurt.
