Buckwheat Almond Flakes

Buckwheat is loaded with nutrients and has an unique nutty earthy flavour. In addition, buckwheat flour is gluten free, leading people with gluten intolerance to seek it out as a flour alternative. Inclusion of buckwheat flour will also make a dish more nutritious, since buckwheat is high in fiber(which offers significant protection against breast cancer-according to WHFOODS), amino acids, protein, niacin, and vitamin B, among other things.

I am sending this to Carol's Gluten Free Photo Contest.

  1. Preheat the oven to 160C/320F. Line 3 baking trays with paper. Beat the egg whites and sugar in a mixing bowl until well combined and the sugar are dissolved. Stir in melted butter until combined.
  2. Sift in the buckwheat flour and then the almond slices. Fold to combine. Spoon the mixture on the prepared trays. Use the bottom of a tablespoon to spread the mixture until thin and even.
    Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes until golden crisp. Remove and cool completely.

Hey Angie, what an awesome and unique post. I'm trying to eat more gluten free foods. I don't suffer from celiac, but I just want to be less gluten dependent. I'm bookmarking this...

This sounds interesting!Never did try anything with buckwheat.

Hettar7 19/6/10 22:47

These look so delicate, like snowflakes. I imagine them falling apart the minute you touch them, like snowflakes. They do sound very good though. I really want to try some of the alternative flours. Soon as I get a place to store them, I will. :)

Pei-Lin@Dodol and Mochi 24/6/10 14:43

I rarely get to use buckwheat flour. But your recipe has inspired me to try the flour out. I may buy a bag of it when I swing by the grocery store soon. After all, it's nice to be gluten-free once in a while! Thanks for the inspiration!

A Canadian Foodie 24/6/10 22:13

Angie - these look lovely. Are they substantial enough to hold a dip or a spread - or do you just eat them on their own? Did you make the recipe up? I am truly amazed. Love the title, too! And they look like giant flakes.

Angie's Recipes 25/6/10 06:45

Valerie: My husband loves to eat the ice cream with these crisp cookies, while I prefer them just the way they are. The inspiration of this cookie recipe was from all the versatile Tuiles.

Umm Mymoonah 25/6/10 15:47

I simply can't take my eyes out from all your recipes, you are really a expert, very glad to follow you:-)

Sook 25/6/10 20:58

I am amazed by how thin these are! They look delicious!
