What is buckwheat flour?

Buckwheat is a versatile, nutrient-rich plant with grain-like seeds. Buckwheat flour is obtained by grinding these seeds. It’s high in fiber and since it’s not wheat, it doesn’t contain gluten.

The flavor is rich and nutty and works well for making pancakes, muffins, and quick breads. It also looks a lot darker than regular flour (or even whole wheat flour). I actually like the color but it might surprise you when you wear it for the first time.

How to make buckwheat pancakes

Making a batch of buckwheat pancakes is just as easy as making regular pancakes. Just replace the buckwheat flour with all-purpose flour and you’re good to go.


Just like with whole wheat pancakes, we prefer a flour mix for best results. In this case, We like to use a mixture of buckwheat flour and all-purpose flour. To keep the pancakes gluten-free, you can substitute your favorite gluten-free all-purpose flour mix for the all-purpose flour.

You can also use 100% buckwheat flour to make pancakes, but the texture will be a bit drier and the nutty flavor will be stronger. The mixture recommended in the recipe results in fluffy, fluffy pancakes with a delicate, nutty taste.

How to make gluten free pancakes

For gluten-free buckwheat pancakesUse 100% buckwheat flour or use a mixture of buckwheat flour and your favorite gluten-free flour blend instead of all-purpose flour.

More ways to use buckwheat flour

Buckwheat flour is versatile and can be substituted for regular or whole wheat flour in many recipes.. Just like when making pancakes, we find that substituting buckwheat flour for some of the flour specified in the recipe gives the best results.

Here are some examples:

  • Make muffins like these blueberry muffins, but substitute 25% of the all-purpose flour called for in the recipe. The muffins are fluffy and get a delicate nutty taste from the buckwheat.
  • Make buckwheat banana bread by substituting buckwheat flour for up to 50% of the flour in our banana bread recipe. The bread comes out soft and the nutty flavor of the buckwheat complements the banana very well.
  • Make Different Types of Pancakes – Try substituting buckwheat flour for all-purpose flour in these blueberry pancakes or pumpkin pancakes.

  • A COOK

These buckwheat pancakes are light and fluffy and made entirely from scratch. They’re not too sweet and have a vanilla flavor that makes them even more delicious. You can make them with 100% buckwheat flour or use our recommended buckwheat and all-purpose flour mix. The mixture makes the pancakes fluffier and more tender.

In the first step of the recipe, we mix milk and lemon juice (or vinegar). It’s an easy way to mimic buttermilk. The acid reacts with the baking soda, making pancakes light and fluffy. Instead of mixing milk and acid, you can substitute buttermilk. Or, if you prefer to use baking soda, we have tips in the hints section below.

We called for unsalted butter in the recipe. You can use salted butter, but you can reduce the amount of salt used.

Makes 10 pancakes

will need

1 cup (120 grams) buckwheat flour

1/2 cup (65 grams) all-purpose flour or use a gluten-free all-purpose flour blend

1 1/4 cups (295 ml) milk, both dairy and non-dairy will work

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice or white vinegar

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus more for the pan

1 spoon of sugar

3/4 teaspoon baking soda, see notes on replacing baking soda

1/2 teaspoon fine sea or table salt

1 large egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • make dough
  • Combine milk and lemon juice, then let sit for five minutes. This mixture mimics buttermilk, which when mixed with baking powder later in the recipe makes pancakes fluffy.

    Meanwhile, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl.

    Beat the egg and vanilla into the curd.

    Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture. Pour the milk and melted butter mixture into the well and stir with a fork until there are no lumps of flour. It’s okay if the batter has a few small lumps.

    • cooking pancakes
    • Heat a large skillet (or use a griddle) over medium-high heat. The pan is ready when you splash some water on the surface of the pan, the water dances around the pan and finally evaporates.

      Brush the pan lightly with melted butter. Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to pour the batter into the pan. Gently roll the dough into a 4 inch circle.

      When the edges appear dry and bubbles appear and pop on the top of the crepe, flip it. It takes about 2 minutes. Once flipped, fry for an additional 1-2 minutes or until lightly browned and cooked through in the center. Serve immediately with hot syrup, butter and your favorite pancake toppings.

Advice from Adam and Joanne

  • For gluten-free buckwheat pancakes, substitute your favorite gluten-free flour blend for all-purpose flour, or use additional buckwheat flour (1/2 cup or 60 grams) in place of all-purpose flour. Pancakes made from 100% buckwheat flour are a bit drier.
  • As the buckwheat pancake batter sets, it will thicken. If it seems too thick, add a little extra milk to thin it out.
  • If you measure your flour, before pouring the flour into your measuring cup, stir or stir the flour in the container (or bag), this will aerate the flour and make the measurement more accurate. Alternatively, you can mix the flour in the bowl and then pour it into your measuring cup. Then, when the cup is full, use a ruler to scrape off any excess flour. This avoids adding too much flour to the dough, making it too thick.
  • Baking Soda Substitute: To use baking soda in place of baking soda, omit the vinegar or lemon juice called for in the recipe and use 1 tablespoon of baking soda.
  • Nutritional Information: The nutritional information below is an estimate. We use the USDA database to calculate approximate values.
