In a medium sized bowl, beat the egg, then mix in the buttermilk and peanut butter. Add in the buckwheat flour, polenta and baking powder, mixing it until it forms a thick batter. Add water if the batter is too thick. Once mixed, let sit for 10 minutes.
Drizzle a little oil in your pan and cook the pancakes on one side until the underside is golden brown then flip and cook until both sides are golden brown.
Once cooked, mix together 2 tbsps of peanut butter with 1 tbsp of warm water and drizzle over the pancakes. Add fresh, hulled strawberries and serve!
TIP: You could also use an apple, banana or one of your dog’s favourite fruit instead of strawberries
