About the Recipe
If you like savory breakfasts, then these Zucchini Pancakes are for you! They are a healthier version of hash browns. They are also great for lunch or a light dinner.
Besides being vegetarian, these pancakes are also gluten-free because it uses buckwheat flour instead of regular wheat flour. Buckwheat flour is made from grinding buckwheat groats, the triangular seeds of a flowering plant (Fagopyrum esculentum). Buckwheat is not at all related to wheat and is naturally gluten-free.
The ingredients are fairly easy to find with the exception perhaps of buckwheat flour. If you don't have any gluten intolerance or allergy, just substitute all-purpose flour for buckwheat flour. You can also try oat flour. Just know that it won't form as well because of the absence of gluten in oats.
NOTE: If you have Celiac Disease and want to use oat flour for this recipe, use gluten-free oat flour like the Bob's Red Mill brand. Although oats are naturally gluten-free, they are almost always processed in a facility that also processes wheat. So, cross contamination occurs. Oats that are labeled gluten-free mean that the oats were processed in a dedicated facility for products with no gluten. No wheat, rye or barley were processed in that facility.
