Cinnamon-Butternut Buckwheat Biscuits + Pudding

I've decided to go on a sugar cleanse for a while and have been experimenting with stevia lately. I was craving some sweetness after 3 days of no sugar. Can't believe it! So I baked these cute biscuits made with butternut squash and cinnamon that's also oil/fat free! And also, if you are on a sugar cleanse and need recipes check out our ebook!

These would be perfect for thanksgiving dinner or with some soup.

Here's the team!:

1 1/2 cups raw buckwheat groats, ground finely
2 tbsp chia seeds, ground finely
1 tbsp cinnamon
Pinch of sea salt
1/2 tsp powdered stevia
1/2 cup butternut squash puree
1 cup of water

Mix all together and you should have a dough that's slightly sticky. Spoon onto a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes at 350F.

The biscuits are crisp on the outside and chewy and soft on the inside. You could also substitute pumpkin for the butternut.

For breakfast this morning I had a delightful acai berry pudding made with avocado and frozen cucumber! Oh the insanity!

In the pudding: avocado, frozen cukes, about 2 tbsp of acai berry powder, a sprinklin' of stevia.
