Were you jealous of all your friends who made their own bread during lockdown?

We’ve got you covered with the Easy Gluten-Free Buckwheat Flour Bread recipe.

Im not sure if you fell victim to the social media pressure to bake your own bread but if you did then WOW what a journey hey??? from banana bread to focaccia to seed loaves, you name it and we thought we could crush it. It was certainly not as easy as I was hoping and found lots of the recipes to be too tricky or require too much equipment so when Faith showed us this recipe we were hooked.

Gluten-Free | Good for you 

| Crushing the ‘Making-my-own-bread’ craze! |

I am unsure if there are many moments of complete satisfaction when making your own bread that A) tastes like bread, B) didn’t flop or fall apart and C) that 100% edible…in fact DELICIOUS. Well this feeling is worth giving this recipe a go just for the feels then 🙂

Yes, we ARE mad about Buckwheat…Bread recipe

Buckwheat is high in fiber, protein, niacin, amino acids and vitamin D. It is also rich in potassium, phosphorus, iron and

calcium so ideally makes a great basis for bread right? Not only that but it packs a great source of plant powered protein that you and your body needs. It also is able to hold a form strong yet soft enough to make sandwich bread – My ultimate goal #momlife Am I Right?

I find this recipe easy to make, freezes well and goes with everything from a sandwich, to toast or just as is.

So why not give this one a go.

The beauty with this Buckwheat Flour Bread recipe is not only is it Gluten free – and lets be honest gluten  causes havoc with so many people that although im not celiac or intolerant anymore [I luckily grew out of in my late 20’s – who knew right?] I just like to avoid it as much as I can. Keep that gluten issue lurking in the background at bay, if you know what I mean 😉 …it also has a delightfully nutty flavour so adds such quality to the bread as well.

Need more convincing?Bread recipe

Did you know that Buckwheat is actually a pseudo-grain, which is a type of grain that doesn’t grow on grasses. Don’t let its name fool you, buckwheat actually doesn’t contain any wheat in it. It also contains 4 times as much fibre as whole-wheat, making it a healthy and filling option to use in bread.

It’s a win-win all round! So lets get baking
