    Doubtful.

    Agreed 10000%. I have no need for anything else! (And, honestly, coconut flour alone works just fine!)

    Mark doesn't think eating buckwheat is at all necessary, and not primal.

    My mom used to cook up buckwheat as a side dish when I was a kid. Polish thing...yummy stuff with butter, salt and pepper.

    I don't agree with baking with almond flour: massive calorie bomb, and holy rancid O6 levels, Batman.

    Having said that, I did have a homemade almond flour muffin from the Paleo Comfort Foods cookbook, and it was AWESOME. It's not something I would eat on a regular basis for the aforementioned reasons. Once you go primal/paleo for long enough, you do not crave the same foods you used to, and therefore do not need replacements.

    Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

    Hmmm. That is tricky. My go-to primal dessert is flourless chocolate cake, but that has eggs AND butter. I've made banana bread a few times based off the recipe ChocoTaco posted several months ago. I did use an egg in it, but I think it might turn out okay without it.

    It's not a cake, PaleOMG recently posted this recipe that's pretty damn close (if you use a flax or chia + water mixture to replace the eggs): Moist Chocolate Zucchini Bread (nut free) | PaleOMG - Paleo Recipe

    No.

    But I eat soba once or twice a week. Hey, I live in Japan! It's actually a seed, not a grain. It contains some good stuff (protein,magnesium), and some, er, not so good stuff. Not really primal, but an occasional treat as part of my 20%, I can live with that. It's not one for the super low-carbers though!

    Soba is just so good, anyway I tried baking a mini chocolate cake with buckwheat and it turned out wonderful.

    I'm guessing tapioca flour is out of the question? It's the only flour I bake with, to do mini bready cookies or what not, althoug I don't know how it would turn out to do something bigger, like bread or pancakes.

    Actually, tapioca flour is more "Primal" than buckwheat. Tapioca is made from cassava, a tuber, while buckwheat is made from a seed. Tapioca is very low in anti-nutrients, whereas buckwheat should be soaked to lessen the anti-nutrients that it contains.
