I finally got the chance to make one of Ashley’s Buckwheat Bakes!!

This is definitely going into the breakfast rotation!

I based my buckwheat bake off of Kath’s version here because I was starving and knew I was going to have to take the microwave versus the baking route.

Cinnamon Apple Buckwheat Bake

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup buckwheat flour
  • 2 tbsp raw buckwheat grouts
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Medium apple, diced

Directions

  • Mix all dry ingredients
  • Mix wet ingredients
  • Mix in diced apples and combine thoroughly
  • Mix wet into dry
  • Grease two ramekins
  • Pour batter into ramekins.
  • Microwave each one separately for 2 minutes, 30 seconds
  • Flip onto plate and top away!

The key to it all is a bag of these babies:

Purchased right out of the bulk bin!

The warm apples completely made the bake.  LOVED them.

With iced coffee on the side for this warm day!

Amazing as usual, my mouth is watering! But silly Q: what in the heck are groats?! They look like the little seeds that are in the bread we buy [which I love]…

Reply

Cait March 23, 2012

They’re just the unroasted, whole, raw, or white buckwheat kernels! They’re awesome!

Katie March 23, 2012

Beautiful!! Cake for breakfast!! I can’t find groats ANYWHERE – I’m on a constant search for them.

I love you, friend – happy Friday!!
