Buckwheat as an ingredient to make porridge, pizza, tabouli, and pilaf, is commonly found in our kitchen. It's just one of those foods that perfectly contributes to our well-being and health, so I always try to find a way to incorporate it into our meals.
These Buckwheat Berry Bars are something that came into play when my clients requested something sweet and savory for breakfast. The result were these delicious and satisfying Buckwheat Berry Treats! They are also:
1. Lightly coat individual baking molds, or an 8x8 (or 9x9) baking dish with avocado or coconut oil. Set aside.
2. Mash blueberries or blackberries. Add berries to your warm buckwheat. You want the color to disperse, so use a spatula to incorporate the berries. You can swirl the color, or you can distribute like I did (as pictured) to get an even color. Add more if you want a deeper, darker color.
3. Pour the Buckwheat into molds or into the baking dish. Refrigerate for a minimum of 4 hours.
4. Pop buckwheat out of molds, or use a nice to slice the buckwheat into bars. Garnish with additional berries, and or, your choice fruit and nuts.
