Here's some buckwheat flake and date flap jacks that I made. Buckwheat flakes are smaller than oat flakes but they make great flapjacks especially of you don't eat oats like me.
I boiled the dates for a few minutes in a little water to make them softer.
Here's the recipe 225g buckwheat flakes 170g butter 50g brown sugar 2 table spoons of golden syrup 125g chopped dates (already softened in boiling water) a little cinnamon and a little milk.
First melt the butter golden syrup and sugar in a pan then turn the heat down and add the buckwheat flakes and cinnamon and stir thoroughly and add the milk last to make a soft smoother cookie before spreading in a baking tray and baking for between 25 and 35 mins depending on how thick they are.
Buckwheat contains magnesium and iron making it a great alternative to many grains and its gluten free. And I love dates so this is a particularly nice combination and because of the natural sweetness of the dates the sugar content.
I'm going to have one sitting outside in the afternoon October sun soon and on that happy note...enjoy the rest of your day now folks. 🌞
