We are trying to get away from wheat, and buckwheat seems to have very limited uses. Looking for something besides pancakes and deserts.
We tried biscuits and they are good with lots of honey. We do not want pancakes every day. We are on a very limited income.
"Very limited uses"?!? Ho-ho-ho, ha-ha-ha, that's a good one. You just haven't been hanging around the right ethnic groups. In Eastern Europe buckwheat is known as kasha and is cooked and served the same way as rice. Here's a Polish recipe for curried buckwheat with mushrooms, onions, and red pepper:
Don't worry if you don't understand the world's fastest Polish speaker, this is one you can just watch and repeat.
And here is a Japanese chef making soba noodles from buckwheat flour. He even speaks English!

I love to make pancakes that aren't sweet, but savory. I make them with a little salt (no sugar), and eat with any leftovers that have sauce or gravy. Or with some dal, is how I often eat them. Sometimes I saute an onion first and then pour the pancake batter over it so it's embedded. A nice touch is to sprinkle some nuts or pumpkin seeds on the batter as soon as you've poured it on the hot pan, so when you flip the pancake, the nuts get a little toasted.
