Ask anyone with food allergies and you will realize that they spend an awful lot of time in the kitchen because it is near impossible getting allergy friendly, tasty stuff straight off the shelf. Nature’s Path Buckwheat Wildberry waffles delivers on that count! What bliss to be able to get up in the morning and have breakfast ready in under 3 minutes 🙂 Buckwheat sounds an awful lot like ‘wheat’ but as Wikipedia puts it…buckwheat ‘is called a pseudocereal to emphasize that it is not related to wheat’.
Review: These toaster waffles are made using a mix of rice flour, buckwheat flour, potato flour, corn flour and tapioca starch – the result is quite delicious! Couple it with with syrup, margarine, fruit and whatever else you fancy and they taste even better. However, they have a slightly dry and crumbly texture which very young children may find it hard to enjoy. Nutritionally – they are not bad because they are wheat and trans fat free and contain a reasonable amount of protein and dietary fiber.
