bt,I found the Chief's buckwheat pancake recipe, but it looks like it needs a lot of tweaking to meet the specifications of VegGuy.

The entire family has been vegan for a decade now, including eggs, honey, etc.

That said, I had actually made a pretty damn good Gluten-free, vegan pancake recipe that I perfected over the course of 2 or so years. Made the recipe from scratch without using any pre-mixed commercial products or "replacers" like GF Flours or egg-substitutes.

Since I cook by intuition, it's hard to translate a recipe but, here's the gist:

2 cups Ground, hulled buckwheat.
1 large banana
2-3 tsp baking powder
Vanilla to taste
Coconut/Almond/Soy milk until the right texture is reached

It turns out the same each time, but I can't tell you the exact measures.

Here's the catch: I used to live at 5,000 ft above sea level when I made that recipe.

Now I've moved to 500 ft above sea level and that same recipe is a brick. I call them "Neutron Star Pancakes" in their current state.

Any more leavening agents and they taste like bitter chemicals.

I need some help on how to "fluff" them while sticking to the same criteria I used when making the recipe.
Try leaving out the baking powder and use 1T apple cider or white vinegar and 1t baking soda instead.
