  • 2 tbsp buckwheat flour
  • 100 g wheat bran
  • 100 g ground almonds (here in the U.S. better known as almond meal/flour)
  • 100 g flax seed
  • 1 heaped tablespoonful baking powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 5 egg whites
  • 300 g plain yogurt (I use whole milk yogurt, but if you prefer a low fat version that’s just as good.)
  • 1 tbsp sunflower seeds


  1. Preheat the oven to 180° C / 350° F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine buckwheat flour, wheat bran, ground almonds, flax seed, baking powder and sea salt.
  3. Add yogurt and egg whites. With a hand mixer beat for approx. 3-4 min. until smooth, even dough has formed.
  4. Transfer dough to a parchment lined loaf pan. Sprinkle with sunflower seeds on top.
  5. Bake for approx. 50-60 min.

Enjoy for breakfast or as a light snack.
