Now that I have a slowjuicer, I am regularly left with an overdose of pulp and since I am particularly fond of carrots, I happen to have a lot of carrot pulp. Of course you could toss it away but there is so much you can do with the pulp that I have started experimenting with it and these delicious little pancakes where rather good. It also happened to be lunchtime and initially I thought I would go and make carrot cakes. But at the last minute I decided that carrot pancakes somehow sounded more appealing and voila.. I have to say that the first attempts weren’t so good. I had added too little of the buckwheatflour to the mix and while baking they barely stayed together.
So my first pancake resembled more a scrambled pancake than anything coherent. It was – however – really delicious. I changed the quantity of the buckwheatflour and added an extra egg and that did the trick. They’re still the kind of pancakes that require a little bit of love and attention but it is so worth it! These are goooood.
Of course you can substitute the hazelnutflour and the buckwheat for regular flour if you so want to do that. The hazelnut flour you can replace by almond flour if that is easier to get.
