Buckwheat cereal? That sounds odd. Maple though? Maybe we have something here. I’ve used buckwheat flour many times in baking but certainly never considered the grain for a cereal. This product from Arrowhead Mills proved my skepticism wrong.
These flakes possess a stronger-than-the-average crunch. If accustomed to wheat or corn based flakes, buckwheat looks very light-colored if not greyish. While it’s not the prettiest color, the heartier texture makes up for it. The maple (and evaporated cane juice) give this a touch of sweetness to make it very enjoyable.
Also worth nothing is that the cereal is all organic, non-gmo and expliticitly labeled gluten free. The box is 10oz. This unexpectedly tasty cereal from Arrowhead Mills was picked up at LifeThyme Market. Here is a store locator.
