Gluten free buckwheat pancakes with eggs and bacon is an incredible sweet, savory, and satisfying breakfast recipe. Also known as the “mancake” in my household (in spite of the fact that I very willingly eat them, too).

Beat it, mix it, heat it, flip it, layer it, ravage.

No ribbons and bows on this stack of flapjacks; this stack is man tested, man approved. Also joyously devoured by moi, this stack has yum all layered up in it for a sweet and savory morning experience to be enjoyed by all.

For the edition of weekend pancakes, I’m focusing on buckwheat flour. Do you know about buckwheat? Cause I didn’t until I did a little research on the internet.

What is Buckwheat?

Buckwheat is tremendously great for you!  

Buckwheat  comes from a fruit seed and is a relative of rhubarb. What does this mean? No gluten!

Those who include buckwheat in their diet have decreased risk of high cholesterol or high blood pressure and may have increased blood sugar regularity as the body’s insulin response to buckwheat is much lower than its response to refined wheat. Plus it’s high in fiber. The list goes on and on and on.

Layering is smart in the winter and the same can be said about a stack of Mancakes.

Here’s the order of operations: Buckwheat pancake layer followed by fried egg and bacon layer, repeat. How high can you stack ’em? 

It’s like Jenga for really delicious pancakes.

Buckwheat Pancakes

Gluten-Free Buckwheat Pancakes with eggs and bacon makes for an amazing sweet and savory breakfast recipe
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
10 small pancakes


Buckwheat Pancakes

  • 1-1/4 cup to 1-1/2 unsweetened almond milk, see note
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon oil, or melted butter
  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt

For Serving:

  • Eggs
  • Bacon
  • pure maple syrup


  • Combine the egg, milk and oil in a bowl and whisk to combine.
  • Add the buckwheat flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder and mix just until incorporated and batter is smooth.
  • Allow batter to sit at least 10 minutes (you can make the batter ahead and allow it to sit in the refrigerator overnight).
  • Heat a large skillet to just above medium heat, and add enough olive oil or butter to generously coat the surface of the skillet, about 1 tablespoon. Measure out ¼ cup worth of batter and pour in the skillet. Cook until a great deal of bubbles rise to the top of the pancake and the edges firm up. Flip and cook another 30 seconds. Remove from heat and place in a warm oven until you finish cooking the remainder of the batter.
  • While cooking pancakes, cook bacon to desired level of crisp. Use the bacon fat for frying the eggs. Layer em and stack em high, son! Drizzle with agave or maple syrup for a sweet and savory meal!


1.) Recipe for Gluten-Free Buckwheat Pancakes adapted from Wrightfood.
2.) The Original recipe calls for 1-1/4 cups of milk. I refrigerated my batter overnight and added an additional ¼ cup of milk (for a total of 1-1/2 cups) before cooking.
3.) Original recipe says to whip the egg white and fold it into the batter in order to make the pancake fluffy. I skipped this step and was happy with the texture of my pancakes but I’m sure the egg white fluffing is delicious too.

My family (husband and two younh children) enjoyed these for brunch today. I did add 1 Tbls arrowroot and a little bit of coconut palm sugar thinking it might lighten them up and increase their appeal to the non- GF eating members of my family. They tasted good, but were pretty flat.

Wow these were amazing! I was expecting to see a more complicated recipe with other flours besides buckwheat. I couldn't believe how simple the recipe was and yet so good! I love the idea of stacking them with eggs and whatever meat. Normally the guys around me wouldn't touch buckwheat pancakes, but these are popular. I am making again this morning. This will be a definite keeper in my recipe box. Thank You!

I made these buckwheat pancakes for brunch and they were a hit! We made two versions; the original recipe and then one with used almond milk {instead of cows milk} and chia seeds {instead of the egg} and they were still great, they stuck a little but we just used more coconut oil on the griddle! Great recipe Julia!

Hey Julia, I've been craving pancakes for the last 3 months. Finally got around to making you buckwheat pancakes. Changed up your recipe a bit by adding chia gel and alomond milk and vanilla. Other than that stuck to the recipe. They were amazing went over to my mom's and made breakfast for myself and my sister and mom. Yummy mom went to the sugar bush and had some Maple Syrup so we had that with them. I have celiac disease and so does my sister so this was a great treat for us. This is a keeper for me.

Hi Claude! I'm so happy to hear you made the buckwheat pancakes! They seemed to not be as popular as the other pancake recipes I posted but they're definitely one of my favorites! They're great for making pancake sandwiches out of - spreading almond/peanut butter on them with some sliced banana.. I'm happy to hear you and your family enjoyed them and thanks so much for the feedback! Have a great weekend! :)
