Cook's Hideout: Vegan Buckwheat Waffles

Vegan Buckwheat Waffles

Blogging Marathon# 55: Week 3/ Day 1
Theme: Kid's Delight -- Healthy Breakfasts
Dish: Buckwheat Waffles
We are starting a brand new week of blogging marathon today and my theme for this week is 'Healthy Breakfasts for Kids'. Lavina is hosting this month's Kid's Delight event with this interesting theme. Kid's Delight is the brain child of our lovely organizer Valli.
My kids usually eat cereal for breakfast during the weekdays. On the weekends I try to indulge them with some of their favorite breakfasts like pancakes or waffles.
Buckwheat Waffles
Today's waffles recipe has buckwheat flour in it. It is known as kuttu in hindi. It is not really related to wheat, as the name suggests, but is related to sorrel and rhubarb. It is a dark colored flour and contains no gluten, so it can be eaten safely by people with celiac disease or gluten allergies. In India, dishes made with buckwheat flour are eaten during Hindu fasting days.
These waffles are not gluten free because they are made with a combination of buckwheat and all-purpose flours. Recipe is from the 'Vegan Brunch' cookbook. Apart from the dark color, buckwheat flour also has different taste -- not in a bad way, but just different than the regular wheat -- so I was skeptical how the kids would like the waffles.

They didn't seem to care about either the color or the 'different' taste, they loved these crispy waffles and ate them with some maple syrup. The leftovers freeze well too, so the kids can eat their favorite breakfast during the week also :-)

Lets check out what my fellow marathoners have cooked today for BM# 55.


  1. Weekends used to be traditional South Indian breakfast when we were in India. Now that we are having those for dinner more often, it looks like I will be shifting to pancakes and waffles for breakfast pretty soon :-)

    1. Kids sure drive what cooks in the house Rajani. Pancakes & waffles need very less preparation compared to Indian breakfast dishes, which is probably why I tend to make them more often :-)

  2. Deeply and madly in love with that plate Pavani.....You are pics are gorgeous and love the prop collection....every recipe carries a new prop....awesome....and choice of your recipes is the new changes....keep the good work going.....tons and tons of best wishes..
