Chocolate Crackle Slice

Posted by on

I discovered a bag of activated buckwheat in the pantry and thought that it might be a good crispy addition to chocolate slice.  It turned out better than I anticipated!

Despite its name buckwheat is actually a seed (not a wheat grain) and is gluten free, a good source of amino acids, provides resistant starch to keep your gut healthy and is rich in antioxidants.  Like most seeds, it is easier to digest and has less anti-nutrients in it when it is activated.
