I wanted to recreate the taste of the yummy clusters and turn them into something myself, and anyone else could happily have day-to-day, guilt-free. Buckwheat has become one of my new favourite things to eat because it’s so easy to throw into dishes/yoghurts/salads to add texture and it’s great to use in granolas and snack bars. Also, despite the name, it’s actually a fruit seed and contains no wheat at all therefore it’s completely gluten-free!
You can store the buckwheat clusters in the fridge for up to a week (if they don’t get eaten sooner!) and because each cluster is so full of crunchy banana yummyness, you only need a small handful to completely change your morning breakfast into a healthy gluten-free bowl! As the buckwheat clusters contain sunflower and pumpkin seeds, you’re also getting your morning dose of essential fatty acids, zinc, magnesium, other essential vitamins and minerals that will keep you feeling full and energised throughout the morning. Pumpkin seeds have another secret benefit – they contain an amino acid called Tryptophan which your body converts into Serotonin ( The “feel good” hormone) to Melatonin AKA “The sleep hormone”. So if you’re having trouble sleeping, go for a healthy gluten-free snack of these banana buckwheat clusters a few hours before bed to help your body get a restful night sleep.
