Calories 98kcal


  • 1 cup buckwheat flour see Notes
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 4 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp brown rice syrup
  • 2 Tbsp applesauce (sweet potato and pumpkin will also work)
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk see Notes


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a bowl, mix the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt).
  • Stir in the oil, syrup, and applesauce until the mixture looks 'pebbly' in appearance.
  • Add in the buttermilk (see Notes for how I make my own).
  • The batter will be fairly wet looking, though it will thicken as it sits.
  • Using an ice cream scoop or an equal-sized utensil, dollop the dough onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet into ten equal biscuits.
  • Bake the biscuits for 10-12 minutes, until puffed and springy to the touch (mine are done in ten minutes, but my oven is fairly new).
