  • 2 scant cups (460 ml) unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 1/3 cups (194 g) low FODMAP gluten-free all-purpose flour, such as Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Baking Flour
  • 2/3 cup (100 g) buckwheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon baking powder; use gluten-free if following a gluten-free diet
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 medium ripe bananas, cut into pieces
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) vegetable oil


  1. Whisk together the almond milk and lemon juice and allow to sit until thickened, about 5 minutes. This is your faux “buttermilk”.
  2. Meanwhile, Whisk together the flour, buckwheat flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl, to aerate and combine. Make a well in the center.
  3. Place bananas in another mixing bowl and mash well, then whisk in the eggs and oil until smooth, then whisk in the faux “buttermilk”.
  4. Pour this wet mixture over the dry and whisk just until combined - a few lumps are okay.
  5. Heat an electric griddle, a large heavy skillet (such as cast iron), or nonstick pan over medium-low heat, brush with a bit of oil or spritz with nonstick spray and heat until a few drops of water sprinkled on the surface dance about.
  6. Dole out about 1/4-cup (60 mamounts of batter at a time; we use an ice-cream scoop. Cook until bubbles begin to appear here and there in the pancakes, about 2 minutes. Check the bottoms, which should be golden brown. Flip over and cook for a minute or two more. Serve hot with pure maple syrup - and a pat of butter if you are not non-dairy.



  • I like to buy my flours, like buckwheat, in bulk. It is very economical and allows me too buy just what I need. If you have the option I recommend looking into it. If you have extra buckwheat flour leftover, seal in an airtight container and freeze.
