Feeling savory? Replace half of the flour with buckwheat flour and serve with maple syrup and bacon. If you feel like adding one tsp of cinnamon to the buckwheat batter, try topping it with caramelized apple slices and whipped cream!

Butterless Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes

{No Butter, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, One Bowl, Small Batch, Healthy}

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tbsp stevia*
  • 1 1/4 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup water**
  • 1 tbsp walnut oil
  • see below for optional add-ins***

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt
  2. Mix in milk, egg, oil, and the optional ingredients* if you wish until just combined. Don’t overmix, small lumps are key to the fluff!
  3. Add in desired mix-ins and let the batter rest for 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. Grease a frying pan with butter and let preheat for 1 minute.
  5. Scoop 2 to 3 tablespoons of batter onto the pan and try to make the batter stay as thick as possible, around half an inch.
  6. When the batter starts to bubble, flip the pancake and cook until both sides are golden brown. The pancake should’ve risen quite a bit by now 🙂
  7. Repeat until all batter is used up and top generously with maple syrup or nut butter!

Notes

*can replace with sugar

**replace with milk or juices 🙂

***optional add ins:

  • 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar for extra fluffiness!
  • 1 tsp vanilla/almond extract
  • micronutrient mix ins: cinnamon, berries, nut butter, chocolate chips, chia seeds…
