Full of hearty, grain-free flour and sweetened with fruit, this allergy-friendly Buckwheat Breakfast Brownie is the perfect start to your day. | RaiasRecipes.comAs one of those poor gluten-free souls who also happens to be intolerant to oats (yes, even certified gluten-free ones), I’m always on the lookout for easy, allergy-friendly breakfasts to make myself while the rest of my family enjoys their morning oatmeal.
 
My dear husband walked in to the kitchen just as I was preparing to consume this wonderful meal:
 

     “You want a bite?” I kindly asked. He did.
     After chewing thoughtfully, he told me, “I don’t like it.”
     “Why?” I asked, “Because it’s buckwheat?”
     “No, it doesn’t have any sweet in it.”
     “Well, that’s because it’s for breakfast!”

And his snide reply?

     “Oh, excuse me. I forgot you’re a stickler for ‘no sweets for breakfast.'”

Fine. I’ll just eat the whole thing myself. Topped with peanut butter… and chocolate… Because he’s right. I believe breakfast is the best time to consume sweets. (The next best time is nap-time.)

If your spouse is like mine, feel free to enjoy all of the non-sweetness of this wonderful breakfast alone, but watch out for kids…. 🙂
