  • 2 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups cold water
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil For cooking

(See recipe notes for toppings)


  1. Mix the 2 flours, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl.

  2. Stir in cold water, mix well and let sit for 5 minutes.

  3. Stir in hot water. Mix vigorously until all of the additional water is properly incorporated into the batter.

  4. Pour 2 tbsp coconut oil in a large frying pan over medium-low heat and fry the pancakes on one side only for about 5 minutes. (Don’t flip the pancakes. This is important, you want a delicious golden crust to form on the bottom and several bubbles to appear on top. The more bubbles, the better the pancake!)

  5. Repeat step 4 until there is no more batter left.
