Buckwheat Blinis

Buckwheat is derived from the rhubarb family and is not technically a grain but has the texture and taste of a grain. These blinis are light and fluffy and are great as a snack or a starter and can be served as a savoury or sweet.

Suitable for maintenance and levels 1 and 3 

Health Bite: Buckwheat has a low GI factor and won’t spike blood sugar levels. It is high in magnesium which improves blood flow and allows for better nutrient distribution through the body
