Buckwheat Flour WafflesDelicious, healthy, gluten- and lactose-free wafers with buckwheat flour. In my recipes I try to avoid white wheat flour. Wheat flour is not unhealthy per se, but too much of it is simply not healthy. The explanation is quite simple: white flour is an isolated product and has a very high carbohydrate content. Dietary fibre, which is very healthy for our body, is hardly contained in white flour. This means that the starch of white flour in the small intestine is very quickly broken down into sugar. Sugar, as you know, gets very quickly into the blood where it increases the blood sugar level just as quickly as normal household sugar and sugar is not healthy for our body and makes us fat. Nowadays there are many alternatives, such as buckwheat flour, rice flour, almond flour, etc.. Buckwheat is an exceptional food. It tastes like grain, but it is not. Buckwheat does not have much to do with wheat or other cereals. Buckwheat is not a sweet grass, unlike the usual cereals. Buckwheat is a branch herb plant, such as sorrel. Buckwheat is therefore gluten-free and lectin-free. Lectins are proteins that are also known as wheat agglutinins in wheat. In the bloodstream they combine with our red blood cells and in this way the blood becomes thick. Thick blood in turn can increase the risk of circulatory disorders, strokes, thromboses and heart attacks. Wheat lectins can negatively affect our intestines and irritate the intestinal flora by promoting the development of chronic inflammatory processes. That’s why I use buckwheat flour very often – for pancakes and waffles – a great flour for me!

I have a waffle iron with 5 small hearts. With these ingredients you can bake about 4×5 hearts.
If you don’t sweeten the waffles too much, you could also enjoy the waffles with salty food like cream cheese, cheese or salmon.
