Buckwheat Bake Recipe Video

September 14, 2011 · 4 comments

I first read the Buckwheat bake on various healthy living blogs like Edible Perspective and Kath Eats.  I decided to make my own with my ingredients and see what I came up with.  It took a few tries but I finally go it.  I chose not to add any sweeteners like the other bloggers but sweeten my bake with peanut butter and coconut.

Instead of a tablespoon of chia seeds like other bloggers, I used flaxseed meal.  I’ve also used a table spoon of Chia Goodness, a blend of chia seeds buckwheat groats and hint of salt.  During hurricane Irene, I made it with protein powder and posted about it here too!  Once I found a recipe I liked, I decided to shoot a video!  Many healthy living bloggers are fanstastic at taking pictures, I am not the best but I can edit a mean YouTube video.  This video took me longer than usual to edit (mainly because my computer is old) but I’m very proud of the final product.
