Chocolate Chip Buckwheat Pancakes: Jessi's Kitchen

I really could not be more excited about these Chocolate Chip Buckwheat Pancakes. I have a very special place in my heart for pancakes and chocolate chips ones are just incredibly nostalgic for me.

I think this may be my first buckwheat based recipe on the blog so I thought I would take a minute to talk about that. So if you have followed me for a while you know that we try and limit the grains in our diet. However, buckwheat is actually not a grain and is actually considered to be a fruit. The edible portion is actually in the rhubarb family. So it is one of those flours that I personally can tolerate well and I also just really love the unique flavor that it has. It is also a pretty affordable gluten-free flour and a little goes a long way.

These pancakes are probably the most legit gluten-free ones I have made yet. They are incredibly fluffy and can be made in to large pancakes instead of making small sliver dollar sized ones.

I really love the chocolate chips in these pancakes because it is a perfect pairing with the nutty flavor of the flour. However, they are optional for this recipe. I do highly recommend a good amount of maple syrup and butter though.
