Cinnamon-Pear Buckwheat Bake

We're finally giving in to the the buckwheat bake craze! We were of course inspired by edible perspective's many renditions of this quick and easy breakfast. This turned out surprisingly good considering how simple the ingredients were.

1 cup buckwheat groats, finely ground
2 tbsp raw buckwheat groats, whole
1/2 tsp baking powder
PInch of salt
1 pear, pureed
1 banana, pureed
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
About 1/4 cups of water

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Blend up banana and pear, water and vanilla. Dump into dry and mix until you have a thick batter. Pour into a greased cake pan and spread out evenly. Bake in a 350F over for 45 minutes. Spread with cinnamon almond butter!

Cinnamon-Almond Butter

2 tbsp almond butter
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Splash of water
About 3 drops stevia

Perfect breakfast for two

It's pizza!


We topped our bake with this super yummy Quin-ola from Your FItness Dish

We submitted this to Ricki's Wellness Weekend this week.


  1. Can you just use buckwheat flour for the ground buckwheat groats? Do you think it might still be one cup? Thanks! I am excited to try this out!

  2. I loved those buckwheat bakes, too! Funny how they all turn out differently (mine looked more like a muffin), yet are all equally delicious. Love the quin-ola topping! :)

  3. Oh my goodness, this looks amazing!! I love that ingredients list! Looks awesome!

  4. these look sooo yummy! my twin loves buckwheat. love the cinnamon almond butter here sweetened with stevia! :)

    1. That's right you have a twin! Almost for got about that! We love buckwheat too, it's a twin thing :)

  5. I just found your blog today! I am so excited to get started!! My son has so many allergies and I have had success with gluten free vegan recipes (that are soy free!)
    I can't wait to try this! My son likes buckwheat more than any of the other GF grains. This would make an excellent school snack!
