Delicious slices with buckwheat flour, nut puree and chocolate chips

Buckwheat Brittle (vegan, oil-free & gluten-free)

Buckwheat Brittle is a fine thing, especially if you’re into healthy snacks. Many of us are very motivated especially in January and give up all kinds of sweets, alcohol and other sins. I admit that I am also trying to eat less sweets. Unfortunately, I succeed rather badly than well and why? Because I’m constantly in the kitchen creating new recipes. In the process, something sweet always gets in the way, which I have to test immediately and of course also nibble on. At least the word “healthy” doesn’t come up short in this recipe, because I made it oil-free and gluten-free. I would say let’s get started together.

If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you know there’s already a Brittle recipe. This one, however, differs significantly from our recipe today, as the ingredient list alone shows. Nut butter, maple syrup, buckwheat flour, almond flour, walnuts, chocolate chips, bourbon vanilla and salt are the basic ingredients. These are all worked together to form a compact dough and placed in a baking pan. The dough is pressed flat into the mold, as a brittle is always slightly thinner and firmer in consistency.

After it is baked, it is allowed to cool briefly and is covered with fine chocolate. Now cut into pieces and our healthy snack is ready.

TIP: Buckwheat flour is naturally gluten-free and very rich in nutrients ideal for those on a gluten-free diet.

Brittle” actually comes from the U.S. and translates to “dry.” The original version is made with lots of peanut butter, peanuts and sugar. It is dried and broken apart and this is how the “brittle” is created. Our variation today is simply a healthier interpretation, and gluten-free, naturally sweetened, and oil-free to boot.

If you’re in the mood for some different, healthy snacks today, here are my suggestions:

The buckwheat Brittle is:

  • Gluten free
  • Oil-free
  • Full
  • Full of healthy micronutrients
  • Naturally sweetened
