Variations

Ideally allow the buckwheat to dry for a few days before drying.

If you don't have a dehydrator, soak the buckwheat for a few hours, rinse and allow it to sprout then pop in an oven on the lowest temperature to dry it out.

Benefits

This blueberry pie is not only delicious it is also nutritious!  Blueberries, acai and goji berries are are packed with phyto-nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants and mango is rich in pre-biotic dietary fibre (this stimuates the growth of good bacteria).  The coconut oil adds a good dose of healthy fat - its unique combination of fatty acids can have profound positive effects on health.  Gluten free buckwheat contains a rich supply of flavonoids and is a good source of magnesium, Purple Corn Extract is high in the essential minerals; magnesium, zinc, copper and manganese - this sweet treat will certainly pack a powerful nutritional punch!
