Simple, Wholesome and Delicious!

So excited for you to try these Gluten-Free Blueberry Buckwheat Pancakes!

It is an easy recipe and yields the yummiest, fluffiest buckwheat pancakes!

And while we love them packed with lots of juicy blueberries (fresh or frozen!) , you can use any fruit you love or even chocolate chips or enjoy them with simply butter + maple syrup.

Any way you make them, they are not a sweet pancake and have a slightly earthy, nutty taste.

And for all of my gluten-free friends who don’t eat oats and can’t enjoy our Fluffy Oatmeal Pancakes, these Buckwheat Pancakes are oat-free!

What’s Buckwheat?

First, despite it’s name buckwheat is naturally gluten-free and has no relation to wheat at all.

It’s actually a pseudocereal such as quinoa or amaranth, and it comes from the seeds of a flowering plant.

Buckwheat is used in buckwheat tea and it’s processed into groats (similar to rice), flour (which we use here) and noodles.

As a flour, it is known as having a fairly high protein, fiber and mineral content compared to other flours.

It give your pancakes a slightly nutty flavor (it is nut-free!) and gray-ish tint, so they may not be the prettiest, but they will be the tastiest!

Before we get to the ingredients, I want to point out that there is a cooking video on this page so you can see how easy they are to make.

And as with all our recipes, there is a printable recipe with exact measurements and directions at the bottom of the page.

So let’s make them!

You’ll need 10 whole food ingredients:

buckwheat flour

gluten-free all purpose flour (we use GFJules – affiliate link)

butter or dairy-free butter

sugar

baking powder

salt

buttermilk (you can make your own)

egg

vanilla

butter or dairy-free butter

fresh or frozen blueberries

We decided to use a mix of buckwheat flour and gluten-free all purpose flour. The combination gives the classic pancake texture we love!

As an aside, you may have noticed that we are affiliate for GFJules.  To learn more about why we love GFJules flour and why we have used it for 10 years, click here.

And importantly, purchasing through an affiliate link does not change your cost at all. It generates a small percentage of the sale for me, and purchasing through an affiliate link helps me fund this website and all the recipes I share, so thank you!

The batter comes together in 3 easy steps:

  1. Mix the dry ingredients together and set aside.
  2. Mix the wet ingredients.
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients to just combine. (There may be a few lumps).

The batter will be thick and not the prettiest — more of a gray-ish color. But the pancakes will taste amazing!

Rest the batter for 15 minutes. This will allow time for the flour to hydrate and get rid of any lumps/ clumps and ultimatley help give the pancakes their light and fluffy texture.

After 15 minutes, it’s time to make the pancakes.

Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle, lightly coat with butter or dairy free butter then spoon pancake batter on to the hot pan.

Let cook for 2 minutes. Add blueberries. Let cook an additional minute. Flip and cook 2 more minutes.

Then you will have golden, fluffy and delicious gluten-free pancakes!

And the texture will be amazing! Light and fluffy!

A few additional notes:

  • You can use fresh or frozen blueberries.
  • Frozen are much more easily accessible certain times of year. I tend to use full size, not the smaller wild blueberries.  Just rinse them under warm water to dethaw a bit and get rid of some the additional water content from freezing.
  • They will taste exactly the same. The only difference is the frozen blueberries might “bleed” a bit more making the pancakes bluer.
  • The recipe as written yields approximately 7 3-4 inch pancakes. The recipe doubles well.

Hope you love them as much as we do!

    These were delicious! Followed your detailed and helpful instructions and they cooked perfectly. I used non-dairy milk and there was no problem with substituting. Even the ‘no pancake’ family member loved them!
