Stolen from here, only one improvement. These are really good as is!
2 cups all-purpose flour (or about 1 7/8GF)
3 tablespoons sugar
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
1 ¼ teaspoons kosher salt
2 ½ cups buttermilk
2 large eggs
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
Vegetable, canola or coconut oil for the pan. I actually use Avocado oil but you do you...
If you want to add fruit or chocolate chips and whatnot it shouldn't be an issue. I haven't tried it that way yet. I'd do it at the end as noted however.
Whisk/mix all the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda) together in a large bowl. Then make a well/push everything to the edges of the bowl.
Pour the buttermilk in the center followed by the eggs and melted butter. Start in the center and whisk all together. Don't over mix, some lumps are fine.
Here's the change... Now let it rest on the counter for say 20-30min. The mix should grow larger and airier. After resting/rising, fire up a pan/griddle/whatnot on med-low and add a small amount of oil of your choice. I think now is the time to fold in your fruit or chocolate bits to the mix but YMMY. I would wait until after the resting period personally.
Use a 1/3 or 1/2 cup scoop and pour into the pan. Make 'em however big you want. They should be thick and airy. Few minutes each side, add oil to the pan when needed so they don't stick to the pan. I add some about halfway through usually.

@LooseonExit OK I know it may be too late for this batch. but my MIL taught me two very valuable lessons about buttermilk pancakes that I'll pass on
- include cooked chopped bacon in the pancake as you would blueberries etc.
- top with sour cream and (if desired) honey
Those look delicious, enjoy!
