When out of buttermilk one day, a swap of kefir (since it shares that nice bitterness quality) created this gluten free pancake recipe and a household favorite was born! Contrary to the name may imply, buckwheat is in fact gluten free. Kefir is chock full of probiotics which are gut friendly and will aid in digestion and really ups the health factor for these pancakes. We love using Kerrygold butter which is grassfed - awesome if you can find it! - and you can top these with a little more butter and pure maple syrup, some warmed up strawberries, heated almond butter, you name it!
