This rich vegan cornbread recipe with Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat (HTB) is beyond delicious. It’s one of the healthiest high-protein cornbread recipes you can make.

That’s because HTB rocks all nine essential amino acids. It packs vitamins, minerals, polyphenols, fiber, and immense prebiotics for your gut.

According to Dr. Jeffrey Bland of Big Bold Health, it’s the “most immuneoactive, nutrient-dense plant yet discovered.”

How to make a chia egg.

If you’re vegan and using chia eggs in this recipe, here’s how it’s done:

To make one chia egg mix a tablespoon of ground or soaked whole organic chia seed with three tablespoons of filtered water, wait for 10 minutes, mix again, then use.

Vegan egg substitutes are widely available, but chia is healthiest. It’s a complete vegan protein with all nine essential amino acids. Full recipe here.

By the way I typically blend HTB flour with other flours like sorghum, almond, millet, or bean.
