Buckwheat Tortillas

BySarah Axtell, ND February 20, 2024

Buckwheat groats are rich in the flavonoids rutin and quercetin, which are both linked to reduced inflammation. Buckwheat groats are also a great source of fiber to support a healthy microbiome.

In addition, buckwheat is rich in minerals, such as magnesium, zinc, and iron.

You can eat buckwheat groats as a morning porridge (like oatmeal- add cinnamon, nuts, seeds, and berries), as a side dish at dinner, or turn them into tortillas- my favorite!


  • 1 cup buckwheat flour (simply process buckwheat groats in a blender to make flour)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1.5 cups water or almond milk
  • 2 tsps apple cider vinegar
  • 1 TBSP ground flaxseed
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Dash of salt


  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and process.
  2. In a greased skillet, cook for 1-2 minutes on each side.
