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…. 🙂

  1. Oh my goodness. I need this in my life. I also love Jesus, chocolate and want someone else to do my laundry. And I’m ALSO oat-intolerant. It’s like we’re sisters from another mother! No kids of our own, but the neighborhood kids always seem to end up on our doorstep.
    This looks big enough for two people for breakfast. Now i have to run to the store to buy bananas……

    1. Haha! Glad to ‘meet’ you, sister. 😉 I think this is big enough for two, though I can’t get my hubby to share it with me so I always eat it myself (oh darn!). 🙂 I hope you enjoy it!

  2. Brownie for breakfast :O this is amazing Raia! I love that it is vegan, gluten free and refined sugar free…that ticks all my boxes! I’ve pinned this recipe because I know I’ll definitely be trying this soon! (And I’ll watch out for those bouncy balls in the buckwheat flour hahaha they get everywhere!)

    1. Haha! Yes, they do. 😉 I hope you enjoy the brownie if you get a chance to make it! I love having healthy treats for breakfast. They make rough mornings a little better. 😉
