Buckwheat Pancakes (Gluten-Free)

The recipe below is gluten-free, and it’ll make as good a pancake as any other GF recipe will without the hassle of potato starch, xanthan gum, and all of the other additives required to make non-gluten ingredients act like the ones they’re mimicking. This recipe makes about (12) 4 inch pancakes.


  • 1 1/3 c. buckwheat flour
  • 2 t. baking powder
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 1/3 c. plain yogurt
  • 1/3 c. skim milk
  • 2 T. water
  • 1 T. melted butter
  • 2 t. vanilla extract (optional)
  • 2 egg whites


  1. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium mixing bowl.
  2. Whisk together yogurt, milk and water. Add the melted butter (and vanilla, if using) to the milk mixture and stir to combine.
  3. In a clean metal or glass bowl, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form, about 3 minutes.
  4. Combine the dry and liquid ingredients together. Add 1/2 of the beaten whites and stir gently to combine, then add the remaining whites and fold gently into the batter, preserving as much air as possible. Allow to stand for about 3 minutes or until bubbles form at the surface.
  5. Preheat a seasoned cast iron griddle or nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Ladle about 2 tablespoons of batter onto the pan and spread into a 4″ pancake. Allow to cook for approximately 45 seconds, then flip and continue to cook until the center is done. Remove to a warm plate or keep warm on a rack in the oven until ready to eat.
