Ashley has been whipping up buckwheat bakes for as long as I can remember.
It wasn’t until she made a pumpkin version, that I knew I had to give the buckwheat bake a try.
One bite and I was in love. <3
I’ve been making these in batches of 2 or 3, popping them in the fridge, and using them as a quick breakfast I can take with me on the road.
Has anyone else found it incredibly challenging to find buckwheat?
Kasha; roasted buckwheat, is easy to find and great in fiber muffins, but it’s non-roasted counterpart is a tricky one to track down!
I had to search high and low for the non-roasted stuff. For anyone that lives in Calgary/area, the best, most reliable place to get buckwheat is Community Natural Foods [downtown].
For everyone else – Superstore now carries it! You’ll find it next to the dried beans/lentils. Unfortunately though, they cannot guarantee it’s gluten free.

- Pour mixture into greased dish + even out.

Optional toppings: almonds, coconut butter, raspberry puree, bananas
Makes 1 cake.
Preparing these in pretty bowls makes everything taste better. I promise.
Once the wet + the dry are combined, stir it all up!
And don’t forget the raspberries. I’ve done that a couple times
40 minutes later, you’re left with a delicious breakfast, fit for 1.
I don’t recommend sharing. It could end badly.
… and if you forget to add the raspberries, just turn them into a puree and plop them on top like I did!
