1. Mash the butter, tahini and honey in a bowl with a fork till well mixed. Pop in the fridge to chill while you make the pancakes.
2. Tear the kale leaves off the thick middle cores. Put the leaves, eggs and milk in a blender. Blitz till combined and smooth.
3. Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl. Add the sugar and a pinch of salt. Pour in the kale mix and whisk to make a smooth batter.
4. Set your oven to its lowest temperature. Warm 1 tsp coconut oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Add 2 tbsp batter per pancake to the pan - you should be able to cook 2-3 pancakes at a time. Gently fry for 3 mins till browned underneath with lots of bubbles on top.
5. Flip. Cook for another 1-2 mins till set. Keep warm on a plate in the oven while you cook the rest of the pancakes, adding more oil as you need it. You should get 16-20 pancakes. Serve them in stacks topped with the chilled tahini butter.

I made these with the sprouted buckwheat flour. Made a garlic and tahini butter and the kids loved them!
