There are so many options! Here's a chart comparing flours: http://benevolentkitchen.blogspot.com/2009...-of-flours.html

Here is a link to some gluten free flour mix recipes: http://benevolentkitchen.blogspot.com/2009...pose-flour.html

In general a mix of three flours and then aerating them, say with a whisk, makes a huge difference in the density of gluten free baking.

Try adding tapioca or potato starch to your buckwheat, or even sweet rice flour to help lighten the density without changing the flavor you like!
