For people who do not eat gluten, buckwheat flour can be used on its own in baked goods or combined with other types of gluten free-flour, such as brown rice flour. Recently, I modified my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe (based on recipe from the Joy of Cooking) to be gluten-free and the cookies turned out really well. Some gluten-free baked goods are quite crumbly but this cookie was crispy on the outside yet still chewy, in fact they were slightly chewier than when I make them entirely with wheat flour. Put to the test by my 6-year old twin boys, the cookies got a big thumbs up!

Charlotte Bradley is the publisher of YogaFlavoredLife.com and an avid yoga practitioner. She was a student of karate for many years and took up yoga only tentatively after the birth of her sons and a knee injury left her looking for a less high-impact form of exercise. It was love at first pose as Charlotte saw how quickly yoga sped her rehabilitation along. She also found that yogic relaxation techniques lent her proper focus, bringing balance into her life as well as a greater appreciation for how blessed she truly is. She lives in Ottawa, Ontario with her husband and twin boys, Charlie and Patty, who keep her on her feet and on the go. Her golden retriever supervises Charlotte’s yoga workouts from a spare mat, with his eyes closed.
