We are having some major sleeping issues around here. First me for the two nights I was in the hotel. And then last night Matt was awake at 2am and never really went back to sleep. He finally got out of bed at 5 and I mumbled “You can make the buckwheat bakes to be ready at 7 if you want” and fell back asleep.
I didn’t sleep all that well myself – it was HOT! We have our heat off and the house was 69*! We should have opened a window, but all of the storm windows are still down.
Lastly – Matt said I was LAUGHING in my sleep last night! I guess that’s better than crying!?
So were the buckwheat bakes ready at 7? YES THEY WERE!
Go Matt! Luckily I had prepped the dry ingredients last night and left a post-in for myself with the wet measurements so he was easily able to find them. I think I also mumbled “Edible Perspective…” in my sleep too.
Fruit Pie Buckwheat Bake
Inspired by Ashley’s Coconut Cream Blueberry Buckwheat Bake
For ONE bake:
- 1/4 cup buckwheat flour (ground from raw buckwheat groats)
- 1 tbsp buckwheat groats
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 mashed banana
- 1/4 cup 1% milk
- 1/4 cup frozen mixed fruit (was worried the strawberries would be too big/liquidy but they were the best part!!)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 whole egg
- 1 tbsp coconut butter flakes (not quite as good as Ashley’s stuffed cream and a bit undetectable)
- Preheat oven to 350*
- Mix dry [I do this the night before in a jar]
- Mix wet.
- Pour wet into dry.
- Grease oven safe dish.
- Bake for 30 minutes.
- Cool slightly and topped with Flying Squirrel PB – Sneaky Cinnamon and GH jam – plus coconut sprinkles!
Dig in! I left it in the ramekin for easier eating, but I actually think removing it is more fun!
Peek in there to see the fruity pie filling!
Half a cup of coffee. My body is SO over this caffeine withdrawal. I’ve felt hungover many mornings recently. I think I need to ditch it once and for all – or go back to drinking a full cup! Ahhh. [FYI, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with coffee – in fact I think it’s good for you – but I just hate being addicted to it!]
Busy bee day again!
