I had never done anything with buckwheat flour or groats, I did not even know about it, but after arriving at this country have begun to hear about it, and the intrigue took over me, so I decided to buy this flour and to do something with it, the first time, trying to do something new, I did not measure correctly the ingredients, the result was a dry and crumbly bread that I had to throw it away, unfortunately, thing that I don´t like at all.  It seems that if the majority of the recipe has this flour, it tends to be quite dry, mm, what could I do to fix that? in the same way, would I add something that contains more nutrients? 😕

I was thinking about it until I said myself, let´s do it again, I was hoping that at that time might be good enough, and YES!, it was a successful recipe, super savory, moist, it keeps your full, and I want to share it with you!. 

Let´s to know about what is  buckwheat?, the groats are hulled seeds of the plant, it´s called an ancient grain, but it´s not a grain at all, is a fruit seed, and it is not related to wheat, instead of it´s related to rhubarb plant, is gluten-free, and one of the healthiest whole grains, has a nutty intense flavor, it´s mainly a complex carb (starch and resistant starch) , and it has been a staple food for thousands of years for some countries around the world, especially Asia and a small part of Europe. Is a good substitute for celiacs and gluten-related disorders, but is good for everyone too.

Then friends, why not to cook or bake with it if it is healthy and savory enough to add to our diet?  the groats can be replaced instead of rice, quinoa, with groats, and it´s flour, we should do both sweet and salty loaves of bread, muffins, cupcakes, or make a porridge with, has more fiber than oats and more protein than others flours.

I know now how it tastes, and I m going to do other recipes with it, do you dare?

Instructions:                                                                            
  1. 1/2 cup of tahini                                                            
  2. 3 large eggs or 4 small
  3. 1 1/4 cups coconut yogurt or your choice
  4. 1/4 cup espresso coffee
  5. 1/2 cup of coconut cream
  6. 6 tablespoons ghee, coconut oil melted, or avocado oil, more for greasing the pan
  7. 1/2 cup maple syrup or honey
  8. 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  9. 1 cup of buckwheat flour
  10. 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  11. 1/2 cup of cacao powder
  12. 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  13. 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  14. 1/2 teaspoon sea salt or Himalayan salt
  15. 2 scoop of pasture-raised collagen peptides
  16. 1 cup unsweetened dark chocolate chips 
  17. Dark chocolate stevia syrup (optional, I used NuStevia)

    Instructions:


    Preparation of Double Chocolate Buckwheat Bread (Paleo, Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free)

    Pre-heat oven at 350 F.

    Grease the bread pan, you can use 9x5 or 10x5 inch, because is a big bread.

    Into a bowl, mix the first 8 liquid ingredients, start whisking the eggs.

    In another bowl, the other dry ingredients, except the chocolate chips and the syrup is used.

    Pour the dry ingredients gradually into the liquid mixture until a thick and smooth batter is made.

    Fold in the chocolate chips.

    Transfer the batter to a greased bread pan and bake it around 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes clean.

    As soon as you take it out of the oven if you want more chocolate flavor like me, pour it over stevia chocolate syrup, the quantity is to your liking, it will absorb it, or chocolate melted chips.

    Let it cool for about 30 minutes if you will do it in a bread tin, and around 10 minutes if you do in cupcakes molds.

    Enjoy as a dessert, snack, brunch or breakfast!

    Notes

    Feel free to replace the tahini for others seeds or nut kinds of butter.

    Instead of the bread pan, do it in the cupcakes molds.
