Buckwheat is a Gluten Free flour but it isn’t crumbly like many gluten free substitutes. Pair it with Rude Health Almond Drink in every day bakes like Banana Bread for a unique nuttiness and toasty taste.
This banana bread recipe is made by our very own chef, Jorgia van Kan
‘Probably my most used combination at home; buckwheat and banana. My friends have many jokes about my obsession with these two ingredients. Buckwheat is such a great gluten free flour. It’s not crumbly like most gluten free substitutes, it binds so well and has a unique nuttiness and high nutritional value.
Banana bread is the easiest no fuss loaf to make. It’s got a nostalgic smell of cosy Sunday mornings and mums baking.
Banana bread can be easily tweaked to suit your taste or dietary needs. And it’s delicious days after when toasted with a big smear of butter or anything else you fancy. For me, it’s a top breakfast choice.’ – Jorgia van Kan
