After hearing about Bland about the Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat and reading some research that supports this unique nutritional powerhouse, I was very interested to try it. So when Bland’s team at Big Bold Health sent them a sample of their new Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat Super Nutrition Flour — I couldn’t wait to start cooking with it.
This small-batch artisan’s flour is assembled and packaged in the upper part of New York and is the world’s first certified organic, US-produced crop of Himalayan tartary bauxite. As mentioned, this buckwheat is rich in nutrients due to its harsh growing conditions – which is why Big Bold Health has strategically worked with farmers in the northern region, where it is very cold.
After this unique two-pound bag of flour arrived at my door – oh-so-beautifully packaged and sealed with a stiff knit of red string – I quickly looked for different ways to use this fancy ingredient. The Big Bold Health team sent me an array of delicious-sounding recipes, and I chose Buckwheat Pancakes (from Mark Hyman, MD) as my first trial run. These easy-to-make pancakes were filled with some of my favorite ingredients and spices — I also loved topping them with berry and almond butter crumbs for extra flavor, texture and nutrition. I also tried a recipe for nuts and tartaric buckwheat muffins, a great food-preparation option that kept me with nutritious snacks for days.
Roy: Both of these healthy foods were delicious, and I’ll make them again. They had a rich, hearty scent-and were great food to start the day or get some nourishment from mid-afternoon. As a person who is acutely aware of how certain foods affect my energy levels, focus, and overall well-being – I was very impressed with how much satisfaction I felt a few hours after destroying these recipes without those bad feelings of blood sugar.
Unlike some gluten-free flours that are really thick on baking projects, HTB flour retains a light, fluffy texture in these classic dishes. Also, the pancakes in particular had a gorgeous deep maroon color that added some visual pleasure to the whole experience. It is worth noting that these two recipes use a combination of almond flour and Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat to balance the slight bitterness of HTB flour.
