The buckwheat and rice flours make these pancakes gluten-free, and the flaxseed meal replaces the egg in this vegan recipe.

Total time: 10 minutes | Serves: 2 (makes 4 large pancakes)


Coconut oil, for cooking
1/3 cup rice flour
1/3 cup buckwheat flour
1 teaspoon flaxseed meal
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon maple syrup


  • Heat a griddle on medium with oil. Sift the flours, flaxseed, salt, and baking soda into a bowl and form a well. Pour ½ cup water and olive oil into the well, then mix until smooth. Add the maple syrup and stir.
  • Pour pancake batter onto the griddle, and flip when the tops are bubbly. Cook until both sides are golden brown.


  • Add more flour or 1 tablespoon water to alter the consistency of your pancakes.
  • Serve with your choice of toppings such as fresh berries, chopped nuts, Instant Ice Cream, Chocolate Sauce, and maple syrup.
