Buckwheat Multi Grain Waffles

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. :)

She said she got it at Fred Meyer (she's in WA). Our Smiths Market Place is the same as Fred Meyer since they're owned by the same Kroger Corp. Here it is on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Smart-Planet-WM-3-Circus-Waffle/dp/B002G4FDBO (direct message from my neighbor :))

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!
