Superfood Crackers

These superfood crackers were my gateway recipe to buckwheat. My mom came up with the base for this recipe years before I found out I had PCOS, and it's one of the recipes that convinced me healthy dupes are possible. We always have these around the house, whether it's out in a tupperware or sitting in the freezer waiting to be toasted and eaten later.

Ingredients for your menstrual phase: buckwheat, flax seed. During the menstrual phase, you want to stock up on micronutrients that are the building blocks of blood. Your hormones are at their lowest levels and energy is low, so keep your blood sugar steady with low GI foods.

Though wheat is in the name, buckwheat is actually naturally gluten-free, and has a lower Glycemic Index score than white flour (55 instead of 85)! It is considered a superfood, so I like to use it wherever possible. It's loaded with antioxidants, is high in fiber, and may aid blood sugar management.

Flax seeds are great to consume during the menstrual and follicular phase because it aids progesterone production. It is also a good source of vitamin E, and is rich in fiber which can help alleviate any constipation.


Superfood Crackers

Serves: 24 Active Time: 10 minutes Total Time: 9 hours



  • 250 grams buckwheat groats

  • 1 tbsp minced garlic

  • 1 tsp turmeric

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 160 grams water

  • Everything Bagel seasoning

  • 1 tbsp flax seeds


1. Soak the groats in water overnight (8-12 hours)

2. The next morning, strain the water so you’re just left with the groats. Put it in a blender with 160 grams of water (around 2/3 cups), turmeric, salt, and garlic. Blend until smooth.

3. Pour onto a large baking sheet, lined with parchment paper. Use a spoon or spatula to spread out the groats mixture into a thin layer, evenly spread.

4. Sprinkle flax seeds and everything but the bagel seasoning on top.

5. Bake at 360° for 30 minutes. Then take it out, cut it into 24 slices (or whatever you want)

6. Put it back in to bake for 20-25 more minutes. Then it’s ready to serve! It pairs well with cheese, hummus, or on its own. You can also freeze it and then toast it to reheat.
