- 1/4 cup of chia seeds
- 1/4 cup of olive oil
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp maple syrup

1. Soak buckwheat groats in plenty of cold water until softened (2 hours)
2. Soak chia seeds in 1/2 cup of cold water for 30 min, until it becomes like jelly
3. Preheat oven to 320 F
4. Drain the buckwheat and rinse in strainer until water is clear. Make sure water is fully drained
5. Add chia gel, 1/2 cup of water, olive oil, baking powder, maple syrup, sea salt and seeds of choice into a food processor for 3 min

- If you want to make this into a roll version, make sure to heat inside oil sprayed muffin tin for around 45 min.
- If you want to make this even healthier, you can shred 1-2 carrots into the dough, still tastes as delicious, trust me on this one!
- I’ve substituted orange juice for cold water to make the chia seed gel and got rid of the maple syrup (because the dough no longer needed extra sweetness). This still tasted delish!
- This bread is very versatile. You can use it for avocado toasts or put labaneh (a Middle Eastern Kefir cheese), zaatar, and olive oil on top (as pictured below)
