I didn't take chemistry in HS or college, so can't remember what I don't know. But the baking powder & baking soda are leavening agents too. so I don't know if it'd be rock like. I do know that cream of tartar makes pancakes like rubber (my son served wife & I breakfast in bed and used cream of tartar instead of baking powder - served us a goodyear tire! ;-P)

you need to remember chemistry and buttermilk works like a levening agent so you cannot substitute almond milk, otherwise you would be making hard rocks, and not lite and fluffy pancakes.

you need to remember your chemistry. Buttermilk has an acidic quality and works as a levening agent, so I don't think that you can substitute it. I am not sure how stevia works in cooking so I can't answer that one…

I suspect that stevia would work as well in place of the Splenda

and perhaps almond milk substituted for buttermilk.
