Perfectly spiced buckwheat sweet potato pancakes with warm cardamom pears will set your morning on fire. Gluten-free and vegan! This is possibly the most decadent, and yet uber healthy, way to start your day.
Combine all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth. Allow batter to sit for several minutes before cooking.
Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tbsp coconut oil to pan. Drop batter into hot pan in 1/4 cup portions. Cook until bubbles begin forming, flip and cook for additional 4 minutes on other side. Keep warm in oven while preparing the remaining pancakes.
In the meantime, heat 1 tbsp coconut oil in a large skillet. Add pears to skillet, sprinkle with cardamom and gently cook for 4-5 minutes. Until pears are heated through and tender.
Pile pancakes high alternately layering with pears and walnuts. Drizzle with maple syrup.

These are also delicious drizzled with warm almond butter for a low sugar alternative
I typically use leftover sweet potato for this recipe but organic canned sweet potato puree works as well. Just be sure it is not sweetened canned sweet potato!
