Buckwheat Multi Grain Waffles

Posted Feb 08 2011 10:14am

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!
