I was at a Whole Foods and saw Lil Bucks and decided to give it a try. I’m so glad I did! The only problem is that Whole Foods is an hour from me. I looked them up online and now I just ordered them through their website.. problem solved! These little buggers are delicious. I add them to my dairy free yogurt and add some fruit. I also add to to my boring oatmeal to make it no longer boring.

Get BUCK in here!

Love to add this nutritious, crunchy topper on everything so we opted for the bigger 1lb bag and we are glad we did! As a side note- my wife especially liked these as an extra source of folate during her pregnancy.

Perfect for Breakfast

I absolutely love adding these to my greek yogurt every morning for breakfast! They aren't too sweet and make the perfect addition to yogurt to help start the day off right.

Perfect crunchy treats

These are amazing to top smoothies or bowls with, eat as a cereal with almond milk, or just take a handful when you need a snack. Love that they aren't too sweet and the flavor is perfect.

Chocolate Crunch I needed!

The product compliments all my breakfast bowls. Cacao the healthy version of chocolate adds the perfect crunch to my breakfast & for snacks! Delicious!


The real question is, why isn’t the entire United States sprinkling crunchy buckwheat goodness on their brekky every morning? Shouldn’t the buckwheat flower being our national flower or something? What is our national flower?

Anyways, here’s the deal: sprouted buckwheat seeds add this addictive crunch you really won’t find anywhere else—not from baked granolas or any kind of nut. We love crunch, so this is important.

Beyond the crunch, let’s talk HEALTH: “superfood” doesn’t have an official definition, but buckwheat defines it. It’s a gluten-free, grain-free FRUIT SEED (yup) that’s high in plant-based protein, fiber, antioxidants (some studies saying 10x more than quinoa), magnesium and more. Learn about all the buckwheat benefits here, and why we process buckwheat the way we do to make Lil Bucks.

TL;DR: We are obsessed with buckwheat because buckwheat is a super-seed that deserves to be obsessed over.

We go through a bit more trouble by first sprouting and dehydrating the raw buckwheat so the nutrients are available to you to eat raw. With buckwheat, it has to be cooked or sprouted in order for humans to absorb the amazing nutrients. Traditionally, buckwheat is cooked, but then it’s not crunchy! By sprouting and then dehydrating, we are preserving the seeds in their raw form, but provide them to you in a nice shelf-stable, CRUNCHY format.⚡

Yup! Technically buckwheat seeds are fruit seeds. 🤯 They are gluten-free and grain-free, and thus make a great substitute for grains for those following a paleo or mostly grain-free diet.

Generally 1-2 weeks, depending on how much you eat per serving. Some people have a full 1/4 cup for breakfast as cereal or use a bag at a time to make energy balls / other recipes. And other times you might just sprinkle some seeds on toast or ice cream. If you are a daily user, we highly recommend the 1lb bags and/or subscription program.

Glad you asked! Read up on our regenerative agriculture mission here, but real quick: buckwheat is a wonderful cover crop for organic farmers, bringing nutrients back into the soil for future crops, making those more nutritious. Our soil desperately needs this. Our goal is to elevate demand for buckwheat in the U.S. so we can get more organic farmers to include buckwheat in their crop rotations.

Right now our buckwheat comes from farms around Minnesota and North Dakota. We are proud to be the first buckwheat brand in the U.S. that is committed to using American buckwheat.

We’ve been on a journey to find compostable pouches, but in the meantime have plastic pouches. (read up on that saga here). So in the meantime, we partnered with RePurpose Global to become #PlasticNeutral certified. We commit to removing 47 plastic bags from the environment for every bag of Lil Bucks we sell. It’s awesome—you can even become plastic neutral yourself by taking their quiz here.

Americans typically eat only half that amount of fiber they need, and while fiber supplements can help depending on the need (digestion vs cholesterol vs glycemic control), getting your fiber from real foods is the best. Whole food fiber provides Dietary (intact) fibers made up of both soluble and insoluble fiber. When you get your fiber from whole foods, your fiber grounds are covered. This Cooking Light article explains when and why to use a fiber supplement (and what kind). But if you get all your fiber from whole foods, trust us, you won’t need one. 😉

Eating a higher-fiber diet is associated with a lower risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers, plus a lower body weight, greater satiety, and improved gut and digestive health.

Given buckwheat’s high fiber content, it’s even considered a prebiotic, which you need to process all those probiotics you’ve been drinking (lookin’ at you, kombucha fiends). Prebiotics are essential food for probiotics, beneficial bacteria for your gut.

Lil Bucks are made in a facility that is free of gluten, soy, nuts and peanuts. All of the oats run in our facility are also gluten free. We are a nut free facility. The buckwheat is also an allergen free ingredient.
