Buckwheat Multi Grain Waffles


Share

B is for buckwheat today! Technically a grass or fruit seed, buckwheat is generally classified as a grain, due to the way you prepare buckwheat (like rice or oats). Buckwheat can also be ground into a flour, which is  delicious addition to waffles!  This adorable circus waffle iron was loaned to me by my neighbor and friend, Holly. My kids LOVE it.  THANKS HOLLY.  We’ll return it ASAP!

Are there any benefits to including Buckwheat in a healthy diet?  Yes! Buckwheat has been shown to lower cholesterol and blood pressure, as well as control blood sugar.  It’s a good source of flavonoids and magnesium.

Buying tip: I couldn’t find buckwheat flour at my grocery store. I did finally find it at the health food store in the bulk bins. It was only $1.29 per pound! Great price!

I have really enjoyed buckwheat more than I thought I ever would. It’s delicious! Please ask your neighbor where she got that adorable waffle iron. I think I could get my kids to eat just about any combination of flour if they had circus animals to eat from. :)

I don’t think I’d want to give that waffle maker back! It is soo cute! I’ve never really cooked with buckwheat before ~ I might have to try this one!

I made these as heart shaped pancakes for my kids as well as for my son’s daycare friends for a Valentine treat. They were all gobbled up. Very yummy!

Hi…would you recommend making these ahead of time, freeze them and then pop them in the toaster as needed…like an “Eggo” waffle? They look delicious…but our mornings are a bit nuts and I never have time to make things like this. Thanks!

I don’t know Olive!! I was only borrowing that, so I haven’t used it since. Maybe you beat your batter TOO much? Sometimes overmixing does something to the gluten fibers? I really am not sure. Try again!!

YEs, I started replacing our canola oil with Grapeseed oil, and it’s worked perfectly in baked goods. Have you used it yet? @Cassie?
