Arrowhead Mills Maple Buckwheat Flakes (Gluten Free)

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.

  1. Hi Raj,

    Sounds intriguing.

    Now in addition to a bigos recipe, I feel I should make sure you get one for buckwheat kasha. Do you like mushrooms?


  2. Oh my! That is all we were allowed to eat when I was a child. No Lucky Charms. No Super Sugar Crisp. None of that for us it was buckwheat cereal. It was much darker in color. The flakes would turn to mush if you didn’t eat it fast! Hmmm. Funny memory.
