Stevie's Maple Kumara Hotcakes

Who knew you could make deliciously sweet hotcakes with kumara??


A Note From Stevie

"I started exploring plant based eating towards the end of 2016, and since then have found myself in love with making food.

My approach to cooking unites whole-food and soul-food, balancing healthy and hearty ingredients with plain old indulgence.. for a well rounded and happy lifestyle.

I am a new mum to my baby boy Jefferey, who is now 5 months old. He is my motivation behind looking after myself and my family - and running my small business from home.

I've been hunting for a plant-based protein supplement since the beginning of my pregnancy and I'm beyond stoked to finally have found one I enjoy. Thanks to Ritual & Rise for supporting my work and making epic products!"

Maple Kumara Protein Hotcakes Recipe 


  • 1 tbsp chia seeds mixed with 4 tbsp water
  • ½ cup cooked kumara
  • 1 cup milk of choice, I used oat
  • ¼ cup neutral oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 serve Ritual & Rise Maple Protein Powder
  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1-2 tbsp neutral oil to cook in
  • Maple syrup, banana and The Brothers Green Hemp Seeds to serve



  1. In a small bowl mix together the chia seeds and water and set aside.
  2. To a blender cup add the cooked kumara, milk, oil, vanilla and Ritual & Rise Maple Protein Powder and blend till smooth.
  3. Add in your now gloopy chia seed mixture and pulse a couple of times to incorporate, you don't want to break the seeds too much.
  4. In a large bowl mix together the buckwheat flour and baking powder.
  5. Pour the wet mixture into the dry and fold until the batter is smooth and consistent - it will be really thick!
  6. Heat a large pan on a medium heat with a little oil.
  7. Spoon in hotcake sized amounts, about 2-3 tbsp, making sure they’re spread out to an even thickness.
  8. Flip when you start to see bubbles forming.
  9. Serve with banana, hemp seeds and a hearty drizzle of maple syrup.
