    • More Info

      Chocolate Buckinis are a wholefood mix crafted from a blend of Raw Cacao and Coconut with a selection of superfoods and fruit to give it a sweet and tangy twist.

      What are Buckinis you ask? We invented the name to describe our activated buckwheat. Buckinis are grain-free, gluten-free, crunchy bundles of goodness that don’t go soggy in cold milk. And they’re not wheat, in fact they’re not even a grain - they’re a protein-packed seed.

      Why do we acitvate our buckwheat? Well, most cereals are puffed or toasted under extreme heat or pressure, which destroys their nutrients. We prefer to make the most of our ingredients, so we activate them. Activation is the same as sprouting – soaking the seeds in filtered water to release the enzyme inhibitors, bringing the seeds to life. Enzyme inhibitors exist to keep the seed dormant as it waits for the right conditions to germinate. This means they also prevent the nutrients in the seed from being released into your body when you eat it. Activating makes it easier for the body to absorb the nutrients. 

    • How to use

      Enjoy your Buckinis all year round!

      In winter - add 1/2 cup Buckins to 3/4 cup of your favourite milk and gently heat on the stove top. 

      In summer - add your favourite milk or yogurt and pile on the seasonal fresh fruit. 

      Great as a topper for desserts, ice-creams and smoothies. 

    • Health Benefits

      Why is activation good for me?

      Activation starts the sprouting process, removing the enzyme inhibitors and making the nutrients available to nourish your body. The final step is to dehydrate the buckwheat, nuts and seeds at a low temperature. This preserves the vital nutrients and gives our Buckinis their crispy texture. And why do we do all this? The answer is simple – so that when you wake up to Buckinis, you’ll feel great on the inside and activated to start your day.
