Our Buckwheat & Hemp cereal is launching at Whole Foods later this month. I know Daniel mentioned this in his blog post, but I thought it might be kind of fun to talk about all the ways you could use Buckwheat & Hemp beyond the bowl.
Bread Crumbs- Place your cereal in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until you get it at the desired consistency. Whether you use an egg wash first or use almond milk, grinding the cereal into breadcrumbs is one quick way to make a crunchy crust on your chicken, tofu or even for onion rings. Play with the grind and determine if you want a coarser or finer crumb.
Trail Mix- Add your Buckwheat & Hemp cereal to DIY trail mix. Select your favorite dried fruits and nuts from the bulk bins of your neighborhood store and then once you’ve got your combination ready to go, give your mason jar, BPA-free tupperware or bag a hearty shake to distribute the ingredients well. Now you’ve got a nutritious snack that’s ready to go.
Yogurt or Ice Cream Topping- If you like eating granola mixed into your yogurt, you’re in luck. The Buckwheat & Hemp cereal is quite crispy and lends its naturally nutty flavor to your favorite yogurt. Try making yogurt parfaits with whatever fruit is in season and a sprinkling of Buckwheat & Hemp. Stir until combined.
If you happen to be someone who likes toppings on your ice cream, try sprinkling Buckwheat & Hemp on popular flavors like Vanilla or perhaps something exotic like Salted Caramel.
Pancakes- For a lot of folks, their association with buckwheat involves crepes or pancakes. For fun, place Buckwheat & Hemp cereal in a bag, seal it then crush with your hands or a bottle until it’s the consistency you want. Add to your pancake batter for a bit of textural intrigue. Ditto with french toast, muffins and quickbreads.
If you haven’t visited our recipe section of our website yet, now is the time. Get creative and swap in your Buckwheat & Hemp cereal in recipes that call for other cereals. And if you happen to be in Dallas this weekend, come visit me for a sample of the Buckwheat & Hemp cereal at the Gluten & Allergen Free Expo!
