I searched and searched and couldn't find a recipe with all the ingredients I wanted to use so I edited a bunch together and came up with this! Incredibly moist and yummy- the crunchy topping cannot be left out, it would be criminal. (If you don't have buckwheat flour just sub another cup of whole wheat flour) My 2 1/2 year old son LOVES these!
