Why Buckwheat?


Buckwheat is gluten-free, which makes it perfect grain for those with gluten sensitivities or celiac disease, but buckwheat is also packed with a powerful nutritional punch. Rich in protein, fiber, and essential nutrients like magnesium, iron, and B vitamins, buckwheat promotes heart health, aids digestion, and helps stabilize blood sugar levels. Its unique composition of antioxidants may also contribute to reducing inflammation and supporting overall well-being. Plus, its versatility makes it a fantastic addition to both savory and sweet dishes, from hearty pancakes to nourishing salads. Embrace the delicious and nutritious benefits of buckwheat for a wholesome and fulfilling diet.

  •  3 cups buckwheat groats (dried)

  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

  • 1/3 cup maple syrup

  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • 2 tbsp chia seeds, but you can mix also flax or hemp seeds (optional)
