Savory Pancakes for Canapes.

Savory pancakes are an excellent base for simple canapes, and these buckwheat pancakes can be gluten-free if you choose the right flour. We’ve shown you an option topped with a simple crab salad, but the base is flexible: get creative!


  • Pancakes:

    • 1⅓ cups sifter buckwheat flour
    • 2 tsp. baking powder
    • ¼ tsp. salt
    • ⅓ cup non-fat plain yogurt
    • ⅓ cup skim milk
    • 2 Tbsp. water
    • 1 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
    • 1 egg
    • 1 egg white

    Wasabi-Lime Crab and Cucumber Salad:

    • 4 oz. crab meat
    • ⅔ cup chopped cucumber
    • 2 tsp. sesame seeds
    • 1 tsp. wasabi paste
    • 2 Tbsp. mayonnaise
    • 1 Tbsp. lime juice


    • ⅓ cup chopped scallions
    • 2 tsp. toasted sesame seeds


  1. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium mixing bowl.
  2. Whisk together yogurt, milk, water, and melted butter. Whisk together egg and egg white and add to liquid mixture.
  3. Combine the dry and liquid mixtures together, stirring gently until just combined. Let stand until bubbling (2-3 minutes).
  4. Heat a griddle over medium-high heat. Ladle about 2 tablespoons of batter onto the pan to form a 2″ pancake. Cook until center is bubbly and edges are dry (30-45 seconds). Flip and continue to cook until the center is done (30 seconds). Remove to a plate in a just-warm oven and repeat this step until batter is gone.
  5. Gently toss salad ingredients together.
  6. Serve pancakes topped with about a teaspoon of salad and top with garnishes.

Or you need to make a hair appointment but can’t recall the name of the salon. Even the “Where are my glasses? Oh, they’re on my head!” cliché rings true to life for lots of people around the age of 50 or so.

When these incidents start to interfere with your daily life and functioning, it’s called dementia. Dementia ranges from mild to severe, and is generally more common as people get older. Wouldn’t it be great if making some pretty simple dietary changes could help keep our brains healthy as we age?
