Basic Buckwheat Bake all spruced up!

This. Was. Fabulous.

I had been meaning to make a "bake" like this for sometime now, with inspiration coming from the Healthful Persuit and The Edible Perspective. Each of these wonderful women have similar recipes but for my first attempt I went with the most basic version from The Edible Perspective. (I've mentioned this before but both of these sites have fabulous recipes as well as photography, you must check them out!)

I followed this recipe (almost) to the tee, making only a few changes...

  • one egg white instead of the flax egg
  • a handful of pecans rather than walnuts
  • 4T vanilla hemp milk vs. almond milk
  • I added 1 tsp of maple syrup to the batter just before baking
Once your bake is done, the possibilities are endless when it comes to toppings. Personally, I chose sunbutter, fresh blueberries, dairy free chocolate chips and a hint of honey. Pair with a delightful cup of coffee and I'm in heaven!

I've already come to the conclusion that this is now in my weekly breakfast rotation and I have so many thoughts for variation in this recipe! I'm thinking... blueberries and chocolate chips baked right into it.... a savory version with veggies and perhaps bacon?! Oh the list goes on and on :) Be sure to look for my variations on this delicious, nutritious and perfectly filling breakfast coming soon!
