Tasty Tuesday-Buckwheat Pancakes

Buckwheat Pancakes

Yields: 8 pancakes


  • ½ cup buckwheat flour

  • 1 cup barley flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • ½-1 Tablespoon carob powder, sifted

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 2 Tablespoons oil

  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup, optional

  • 1 cup unsweetened plant-based milk

  • ½ cup water

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Prepare and preheat the griddle to 350°F.

  2. Combine dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl.

  3. Make a well in dry ingredients.

  4. Add wet ingredients into well in dry ingredients and mix just enough to combine and moisten the batter evenly.

  5. Spoon ½-cup batter onto the griddle and repeat until the griddle is full. Brown on both sides.


These pancakes may require a longer, lower heat cooking time than traditional pancakes. If cakes are doughy in the center, try reducing heat and cooking longer. I prefer to use a griddle (375°F) because egg-free pancakes need to get to the heat as fast as possible after being mixed. I can get all eight cakes on my griddle at the same time and the pancakes are light and fluffy.

Can be frozen but may dry out a little.

Variations: For gluten-free Buckwheat Pancakes, use gluten-free all-purpose flour or whole grain flour of your choice in place of barley flour.
