Gluten Free Buckwheat Pancake Mix Recipe

Gluten Free Buckwheat Pancake Mix Recipe

This gluten free buckwheat pancake mix recipe tastes like “normal” pancakes! I have served this to many of my don’t-give-a-@#$%-about-gluten friends (you know who I’m talking about, we all have ’em!). They gobble them up in no time, and have no idea they have just enjoyed a gluten free pancake mix recipe (*evil laugh) 🙂

I originally made this recipe for my partner dude, Irfan’s birthday breakfast. Irfan is one lucky guy! That’s right, I said it 🙂 Sometimes (just sometimes though!) I feel bad about taking Irfan on the anti-inflammatory gravy train (gluten free and vegan of course!) with me. Although let’s be real, he’s healthier and, in turn, happier for it :).

Nevertheless, because it was his birthday and all, I wanted to make pancakes that weren’t obviously gluten free tasting. And so the “Gluten Free Buckwheat Pancake Mix Recipe” was discovered 🙂

Serves: 8 pancakes
