Halloween Pancakes


This is the spookiest day of the year so I am here to celebrate it with some creepy pancakes. However, we don’t really celebrate it here in the Netherlands, as in the US, I always love to make some treats and meals.

These are buckwheat pancakes with some mango-banana smoothie between the layers and in the ‘craved pumpkin’. I made the blood with agave syrup and beetroot powder. The flavors are not completely in harmony, but it was so much fun to create this creepiness.

Here’s the recipe if you want to create something similar:



  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1 cup rice-coconut milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp activated charcoal
  • 1 tbsp agave syrup


  • 1 mango
  • 1 banana


  • 4 tbsp agave syrup
  • 1-1/2 tsp beetroot powder


  1. Mix the ingredients of the pancake. Bake them on coconut oil, and let them cool a little. I chose only buckwheat flour, because it stays very firm with that (and it is gluten free). I didn’t want some loose pancakes, but it means, that it had a pretty strong buckwheat taste. If you don’t like I recommend a mixture or some other flour, which holds the pancakes together.
  2. When the pancakes are ready, choose two of them, and ‘crave the pumpkin’. Use a sharp knife and be careful!
  3. Blend the banana and the mango together. Put some between the layers and fill up the last two pancake’s holes.
  4. Mix the agave syrup and the powder together. Warm it up a little bit, then it can dissolve. I used a straw to make the blood splash. Dip it into the syrup then blow it from the other side. One quick and strong blow. Then it gets everywhere.

As I said, the flavors are not completely in harmony, but it was nice to eat some Halloween themed food.

Did you make anything for Halloween? Do you celebrate it somehow? If yes, how?

Have a spooky time with cooking!
