Gluten Free Buckwheat Pancakes

Buckwheat is naturally gluten free despite the name and they make incredible pancakes. Buckwheat has an almost bitter taste and when paired with honey or maple syrup as a topping they are like a match made in heaven. Buckwheat it popular for making French savoury pancakes but works for sweet or savoury.
