These are some of the simplest pancakes you could make! Mix the dry ingredients, mix the wet ingredients, combine them, fry ’em, DONE.

Let’s talk about buckwheat flour!

It produces the fluffiest pancakes I’ve ever laid mouth on. Buckwheat flour, despite it’s name, is made from a gluten-free whole grain. The flavor is nuttier than other flours. 1/4 cup of buckwheat flour contains 4 grams each protein and fiber! A fabulous whole grain, if I do say so myself.

Of course you’re going to go buy a bag of buckwheat flour so you can make these pancakes. I mean, aren’t you drooling right now? Here’s another recipe that uses buckwheat flour so the bag won’t be sitting in your pantry unused for a year: microwave buckwheat breakfast cake.
