Our family loves pancakes for breakfast. I decided to surprise them with these easy gluten free buckwheat pancakes the first morning of winter break.
Two weeks of sleeping in, lazying around the house, and just laying in bed. Winter break is my kids' favorite time. School is grueling, and homework often keeps them up late during the school year. For the next two weeks they get to play catch up...including enjoying this special pancake breakfast.
My kids also love these Paleo Banana Flour Waffles and these Gluten Free Coconut Pecan Pancakes for breakfast!
This is definitely a special occasion, treat stack of pancakes. The sweet pear flavor blends with the buckwheat to make a delicious stack of buckwheat flour pancakes.
Don't tell my kids these pancakes are healthy...that will be our little secret! When Mr. Fearless Dining tried these pancakes, he said they were his favorite pancakes ever. That is pretty cool to hear him say!
Is Buckwheat Flour Gluten Free?
People often ask, "is buckwheat flour gluten free?"
Buckwheat is one of those deceptive sounding flours. Even though it has the word "wheat" in its name, buckwheat is 100% gluten free! It is a denser grain, and the flavor is also great in savory recipes.
I have a couple of buckwheat flour recipes on my blog, like these Gluten Free Buckwheat Cheddar Scones and this Gluten Free Buckwheat Vermicelli Stir Fry.
What types of pears are the best for cooking?
I used Bosc pears in this recipe. Pears are in season and they are at the peak of flavor right now. I really think pears are one of the more underused fall fruits. You can also use Anjou, Bartlett, and Comice.
We use pears a lot, one of our favorite pear recipes is this Paleo Pear Muffin recipe.
I left the skin on these pears for the extra fiber. The skin cooks easily with the pears to become really soft. Your whole family will love these healthy buckwheat pancakes!
The buckwheat flour pancake batter is easily mixed up in one bowl.
