Until the other day, I hadn’t eaten buckwheat since I was a kid. I was curious to find out if it was as bad as I remembered, so I made a small batch of gluten-free buckwheat pancakes. Well, I don’t know if my mom had a bad recipe, or bad buckwheat, or if my tastes have just matured, but those pancakes were good! It wasn’t just a mom thing either, because the whole family liked them.
I looked up several different recipes and combined them into my own recipe.
Gluten-Free Buckwheat Pancakes Ingredients
- 1/2 c. buckwheat flour*
- 1/4 c. potato starch
- 1/4 c. gluten-free flour mix (I used Carol Fenster’s sorghum blend)
- 2 tsp. sugar
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 2/3 c. milk
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1/4 c. cooking oil
In a medium bowl whisk together the flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl or glass measuring cup, combine the milk, egg, vanilla, and oil, beating slightly with a fork. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk together well.
Let the batter sit and thicken for a few minutes. Heat a skillet very hot and spoon the batter onto the skillet. These brown quickly, and you might need to turn them before you see bubbles on top. Use a spatula to see how brown they are getting. This recipe made 9 medium pancakes.

When I saw the name of your post I was thinking...oh good, maybe she knows a gf buckwheat flour made in a dedicated plant. Even looked at Bob's Red Mill's catalog, but theirs isn't labeled gf. A long time ago I had some Buckwheat flour and thought it was labeled gf from Bob's Red Mill. Maybe they changed their labeling.
Hopefully someone will know.
Arrowhead Mills does clean their lines, but they don't have dedicated lines for gf flours. I have had reactions to their products in the past so I prefer to find another option.
Bob's Red Mill doesn't process their buckwheat with the gf flours and it's not marked gf.:(
I like the idea of milling my own buckwheat so I will look into purchasing whole buckwheat at the health food store.
I usually made pancakes for the past 20 plus years with white whole wheat, whole wheat, and buckwheat. Yummy!!
So I just made your pancakes (I substituted Oat flour and Brown rice flour for the four mix) VERY good - I was very surprised at how light and lovely they turned out... color too! THANKS!
