Buckwheat Flour 101

If you haven’t tried baking with Buckwheat flour yet, I highly encourage you try it. Despite its name, Buckwheat is actually not related to wheat, and is not even a grain, so its a great ingredient if you are accommodating a grain-free diet.  If that’s not enough, it is also rich in iron, zinc, magnesium, and contains a good amount of protein.

A pro-tip: Buying buckwheat flour is often more expensive than buying Buckwheat groats. The groats are usually less than $6 per bag, and you can easily make flour out of them!

Here’s how:

  1. Put the groats in a food processor.
  2. Process until resembles flour-like consistency.

Use in wholesome recipes, like this easiest, healthiest pancake batter of all time. Enjoy!
