I was going through my pantry recently – early spring cleaning – and I discovered I still had one jar of plums my mum made me. I’ve been eating them whole winter with my morning oatmeal. However, I decided to use the last jar for a cake that I’ve been meaning to make for some […]
This recipe is quite not conventional but truly damn good, satisfying and Gluten-Free as I’ve used buckwheat flour. It opens a whole new world for cookie making, naturally flavouring the biscuit with a light hazelnut taste and a perfect crumbly texture, crispy outside and softer inside.

I have been blessed with an abundance of homegrown, organic figs from my parents and grandparents this Summer, with plenty more to come. They are not only delicious but high in fibre and a source of potassium, calcium, magnesium and iron.

So today I have a recipe for buckwheat pancakes for you. My basic recipe for sweet vegan crêpes will follow soon, which we also have almost weekly. This time around I made the pancakes with buckwheat flour only, but you can mix it well with another flour like spelt flour.
Buckwheat is naturally free of gluten because it’s not a grain, but a polygonaceous plant and is even related to rhubarb. It’s a powerhouse of nutrients and provides a high content of fiber and protein.

In addition buckwheat contains plenty of vitamin E and B1 or B2, minerals such as potassium, iron, calcium, magnesium as well as silicic acid, which is very important for skin and hair.
I find it difficult to get a good gluten-free bread, even if nowadays you find many products in supermarket. Then, I always prefer a home-made bread rather than buying a ready product. I also like combining all purpose gluten-free flour with buckwheat, quinoa or millet flour, so you add other important minerals into your nutrition. Today […]
Throughout the last year I have tried quite a lot of different ways of eating. After I have been diagnosed with Acid Reflux last year, I had quite some issues with digesting most of the Food I ate. I had several Check-ups at several different doctors and after I ate low carb for 4 weeks […]
