Pumpkin Raspberry Buckwheat Bake

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.

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!

Have you tried the buckwheat bake? What’s your favorite flavor?

Do you like sweet or savory breakfasts?

I’ll take breakfast, lunch, and dinner sweet… all the time!

  1. Hi Leanne, thank you for sharing this recipe! When I went GF I bought all these “unusual” flours & never really knew what to do with the buckwheat. This bake was dense & moist and I loved the little surprises of the raspberries. And it was very filling! I could have stopped halfway but I finished the whole thing off with some Greek yogurt and almond butter. Will definitely make this again and try other flavor variations.

    • Yogurt and almond butter– sounds delicious! So glad you enjoyed the recipe. Thanks for sharing :)

  2. Hi Leanne. I have buckwheat flour, Do you know how much flour I should use? I don’t have groats. Thank you.

  3. I love it! I want to make these exactly the same — can you tell me what the creams are on top of the bake? One looks kind of pumpkin-ish and the other is the raspberry pureed on top of something white and kind of cream cheese looking?

    • Hi Connie! I used almond butter for the one and coconut butter with mashed raspberries for the other ;)

  4. Hi! These look great! I was wondering if I could substitute mashed banana for the pumpkin as I cannot tolerate pumpkin or applesauce. What amount would I use and do you think it will work? Also would it be possible to sub liquid egg whites for the egg?
    Thank you!!

    • Yes to both. Equal amounts and you should be good to go! Enjoy :)

  5. I didn’t wash the groats, should I be worried?! Just read a post above.

    But anyway, they’re in the oven now and smell really good! Thinking I might make again tomorrow with rhubarb, yum!
