When I started phase 1 of my own LEAP elimination diet based on my MRT blood results, I knew there were going to be changes to the types of staple foods I turned to. One such thing? The flours I store in my pantry.

I had already been using gluten-free flours, but most of the cup-for-cup gluten-free flour blends that I relied on had ingredients that came back moderately reactive for me, or they had untested ingredients that I needed to omit temporarily. Some even contained milk powder, which definitely wasn’t an ingredient I expected to see in a flour blend!

I began trying different alternative flours – almond flour, coconut flour, millet flour, tapioca flour, buckwheat flour, etc. I quickly found one favorite though, and that was buckwheat flour.

Buckwheat is almost a bit of a misnomer, because despite having “wheat” in the title, there’s actually no wheat protein in buckwheat and it’s a gluten-free food. If you’re familiar with quinoa, buckwheat is kind of like that in that it’s actually a starchy seed. These seeds (often found for purchase as “buckwheat groats”) are delicious in their own right, but they’re also popular milled into a flour.

I really like using buckwheat flour when baking gluten-free, because it seems a little closer to a traditional flour than say something like coconut flour.

I used pre-milled buckwheat flour in this Banana Buckwheat Pancakes recipe, but you can alternatively mill your own buckwheat flour by using a coffee bean grinder or high-powered blender to mill into your own flour. This step doesn’t take very longer, and many people say it yields a lighter-colored flour, so if color is important you may want to mill your own.

To make these Banana Buckwheat Pancakes even easier I blended all the ingredients together! Of course, the more ripe/ overripe your banana is, the sweeter it will make your pancakes. I like to top my Banana Buckwheat Pancakes with fresh banana slices and a drizzle of pure maple syrup or honey for added sweetness.
