Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 175 degC
  2. Grease a loaf tin with extra coconut oil.
  3. Add all dry ingredients to a large bowl and roughly combine. Add water and oil to the large bowl and combine thoroughly – I find that using my hands does the best mixing.
  4. Turn the batter into the loaf tin and press down firmly. Decorate the top with extra pumpkin seeds and flax seeds, walnuts etc and press down to ensure they won’t fall off.
  5. Cook for 1 hour.
  6. Depending on your oven you may need to cook for a bit longer, just check. 
  7. Remove from the oven and allow to cool thoroughly before slicing gently.
  8. Store in an air-tight container in the pantry for 2 days before moving to the fridge or freezer.

    Hi Penny,I have started a paler lifestyle and have started to loose weight.
    Since I no longer eat wheat what can I sub the buckwheat with?

    Hi Fran! Good for you! And congratulations on starting to lose some weight 🙂

    Despite its name, Buckwheat is actually not wheat! It’s not even of the grass family, but is related to sorrel and rhubarb. It is gluten-free and is known as a pseudocereal because it is not of the grass family and the part that we use in food is the seed. It is a fabulous source of complex carbohydrates, protein, dietary fibre, B-vitamins and minerals.

    As much as I don’t like to reference wikipedia – this article on buckwheat is actually very well referenced and in this case I’d recommend looking there to read more.
