How to Make Buckwheat Brownies



Introduction: How to Make Buckwheat Brownies

About: Your local sugar loving teenager.

My cousin recently got diagnosed with Celiac Disease, which was a big change for her and her family. So at our family Christmas party (a few months late, as we all have busy schedules), I was worried she wouldn't have anything. Thankfully, in my Home Economics class, I was put in a group with a girl who also had Celiac. So after making lots of gluten-free projects in school, I have some experience.

I made sure the kitchen was extra clean so the brownies weren't contaminated, and nobody got sick. The brownies were a hit, and I figured I'd share the recipe. So yay, BROWNIES!

Step 1: Ingredients


  • 1 cup + 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp buckwheat flour
  • 1 stick + 1 tbsp butter
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 12 oz chocolate chips
  • Fancy sprinkle decoration (optional)

Double check that everything is gluten-free. I know some brands are different.

Step 2: Prep

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Butter an 8x8 inch pan.

Step 3: Melt.

Over a double boiler, melt 8 oz chocolate chips and the butter until liquid.

Step 4: Beat It!

Beat together your eggs, vanilla, and sugar.

Step 5: Mix the Liquids.

Mix together the egg mixture and the melted chocolate mixture.

Step 6: Dry Ingredients.

Combine the buckwheat flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder.

Step 7: Batter Up!

Mix in the dry stuff with the liquids. The batter should have a high viscosity.

Step 8: Chips.

Mix in the leftover chocolate chips.

Step 9: Pour Away!

Pour the batter into your buttered pan and bake at 350ºF for 1/2 hour. You may need more time, I was unable to get an exact time because I was away when they came out.

Once the brownies come out, push fancy sprinkles into them for decoration.

Step 10: Eat!

Huzzah! Brownies! Eat up!
