These gluten-free buckwheat pancakes are delicious for breakfast and are easy to make. They are tender, moist and have a nutty flavour. Buckwheat pancakes are perfect for a quick weekday breakfast or on slow weekend mornings.

When our kids were young we used to eat pancakes for dinner at least once a week. We were busy with swim, hockey and luge practices that mornings were too hectic for pancakes. We all loved to eat pancakes for dinner- or brinner it is called.

Have you tried making pancakes with buckwheat flour? Or any recipes using buckwheat flour, groats or puffs? This recipe only uses one flour-buckwheat flour in it. A recipe that only uses ONE flour is a good thing, especially when so many gluten-free recipes call for multiple flours in them. This buckwheat pancake recipe itself is pretty simple. Start your morning with stack of these fluffy buckwheat pancakes favoured with nutmeg and cinnamon. Try heating up the maple syrup before you drizzle on the pancakes for a fun change.

IS BUCKWHEAT GLUTEN-FREE?

Despite being called buckwheat, there is no wheat involved. Buckwheat is highly nutritious whole grain that contains NO GLUTEN. Buckwheat is a good source of protein, fibre and energy. It is similar to quinoa in that it is a grain-like seed.

I like to replace quinoa in salads with buckwheat groats. Have a couple recipes on the blog using buckwheat like buckwheat salad and chocolate buckwheat puff squares.

WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE THE PANCAKES?

These gluten-free buckwheat pancakes are delicious for breakfast and are easy to make. They are tender, moist and full of nutty flavour.

The gluten-free buckwheat pancakes are fluffy, a bit of sweet and the perfect canvas for a good drizzle of maple syrup. This buckwheat pancake recipe is a great way to start your day with whole grains, protein and fibre. Due to the whole grain and high fibre content in the pancakes I find one pancake is quite filling for me.

Whole grains have been shown to help reduce the risk of asthma, lower the risk of some cancers, type 2 diabetes, strokes and heart disease. This gluten-free recipe only uses 1 Tbsp of sugar for 8 medium pancakes. There is no need to add more to the batter. Once you have topped the pancakes with maple syrup and fresh fruit, they are plenty sweet.

New recipe #3 for March as promised. This time it is for pink paleo pancakes!!

How do I make the pancakes pink you ask?

Its not with artificial coloring either.

I ordered a variety of natural powders from a company called Raw Nice (link to Raw Nice) and have been experimenting in the kitchen with them. This time I used pink pitaya powder and thought I would add it to pancakes.

The pink pitaya powder is a brilliant pink color and would be fun to add to smoothies, yogurt bowls and such.

gluten free dairy free banana chocolate pancakes recipe


I was in the kitchen all day long today working on recipes for Amber Approved magazine and for a blogger pasta contest using Catelli gluten free pasta.
I enjoy challenging myself to come up with healthy lunch ideas or a spring time salad using all kinds of citrus fruits.

Playing in the kitchen and coming up with recipes exhilarates me. It fills me with energy to have many cutting boards out, chopping a variety of fruits, veggies and herbs as well as my stand mixer beating a gluten and dairy free dough in the background.
It can look like chaos but in the end four new recipes have been developed and photographed.
While in the midst of this chopping and stirring I thought of pancakes.
Yes, pancakes.
I knew I had a banana in the freezer and decided I would make banana chocolate chip pancakes.
You will be happy I did for I am sharing the new recipe with you.
This recipe is gluten free and dairy free but you can switch to cow milk if you want.

This recipe made about 15 medium pancakes.

Gluten Free Dairy Free Chia Pancakes

Are you a pancake person?
It seems to me you are either a pancake person or you are not. To me, pancakes are a must have either Saturday or Sunday morning.
What about you?
When my kids were younger and we were so busy with a variety of sports after school, we would regularly have breakfast for supper. Pancakes with a fried egg, or sometimes even bacon with them. It was an easy meal to make for my busy family and it was something we all enjoyed.
I still love pancakes and even though I do not make them as often as I used to with the kids all grown and not living at home, I occasionally will whip up a small batch for hubby and I to enjoy.
This recipe is gluten free and dairy free. You can easily substitute the goat milk and apple cider vinegar with buttermilk if you do not have any issues with dairy.
I like to add fresh blueberries to my pancake batter but they are just as good plain.

The Difference Between Gluten-Free and Wheat-Free

gluten free muffins
gluten free cupcakes
gluten free heart pizza
gluten free buttermilk pancakes

Lately I’ve been getting a lot of questions on both the blog and our Facebook community about the difference between a wheat-free diet and a gluten-free diet.
I felt I needed to elaborate on the answer to this question. It is a longer answer than can be said in the comment section.
First off, I am gluten-free!
I was diagnosed with Celiacs disease 5 years ago, and thus a strict gluten free diet is my new life plan.
With my diagnosis came mixed reactions to packaged gluten free foods and a desire to bake really good gluten free foods. (That’s what Wheat Free Mom is all about: just because you’re gluten-free, DOESN’T MEAN your food should taste anything less than delicious!)
That is how this blog happened. I was frustrated at times and so happy at times and wanted to share this with you all.
When I found a gluten free recipe that tasted so good, I wanted to weep, and sharing these with others has been a blessing for me. I knew others were out in this world like me.
They too, wanted to make a warm batch of gluten-free muffins….

A pile of gluten-free buttermilk pancakes for Sunday morning

So I started the blog Wheat free Mom with my son back in August 2009. (Crazy how far the blog has come!)
Why wheat-free and not gluten-free?
Simply: gluten-free mom was taken and so I became Wheat Free Mom.

Gluten-Free vs. Wheat-Free

First off, they are NOT the same.
Gluten is the protein found in many grains including wheat, rye, barley, spelt and oats.
Celiacs disease is a medical condition, an autoimmune response to gluten.
If you have Celiacs disease even a small amount of gluten is harmful. It damages the surface of the small intestine resulting in poor absorption of nutrients (protein, fat, vitamins and minerals) which are necessary for good health.
The treatment for Celiacs disease is a strict adherence to a gluten-free diet for life!

What is Wheat-Free?

Basically… avoiding all products that list wheat as an ingredient.
Some ingredients are obvious, such as wheat, wheat bran and whole-wheat.
Less obvious ingredients are couscous, bulgur, semolina, durum and kamut.
Rye, spelt, barley and Oats are wheat-free but not gluten-free.
My recipes are all gluten free, which means they are also than wheat free.
Most wheat-free recipes contain some sort of gluten so they are NOT gluten free.
A food labelled “wheat-free” is safe for someone with a wheat allergy, but NOT for someone with celiacs disease or gluten sensitivity.
This is why it’s INCREDIBLY important that you take time to educate yourself on the differences AND the various ingredients to watch out for. It’s also a great reason to focus on non-processed foods and to cook for yourself as much as possible so you can ensure your meals are going to be clean.
I feel like I’m getting long winded in answering the question.
Simply: Gluten-free will be wheat free BUT wheat free will not be gluten free, unless it is labelled gluten free.
For me, I have a medical condition called celiacs disease, and for the rest of my life I will be following a gluten free diet. I am extremely sensitive to gluten so I am very careful where I eat and what I eat.
I appreciate all the discussion lately about wheat-free and gluten-free and I hope I’ve answered some of the questions. Again, I am not a doctor so please consult a doctor regarding your health issues.
Our bodies are all unique and what one person can easily digest is not necessarily the same for someone else.
Ask questions and seek professional medical help if you are having any health issues.
Lastly, again, ALL recipes on Wheat Free Mom will be both gluten and wheat free.
