Are you a little over your overnight oats? Looking for some breakfast inspiration but still want it to be healthy and filling? Then my buckwheat porridge is just what you’ve been looking for!
This recipe is super simple to make, but does require soaking the night before! Once soaked you’ll have a delicious nutty porridge in less than 10 minutes.
Buckwheat is great for all the healthies out there as it is gluten free, high in fibre, zinc and magnesium.
Adding Chia seeds will also give you a good dose of healthy fats and cinnamon helps stabilise blood sugar, avoiding that yucky 10am crash.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED; Serves 1
1/4 cup buckwheat groats (you’ll find these in the supermarket or health food store)
2 tbl. chia seeds
1/2-1 cup almond milk
1/2 apple, grated
1 tsp. cinnamon
WHAT YOU’LL NEED TO DO:
The night before, soak the buckwheat, chia seeds and almond milk in a bowl. The next morning, place the soaked buckwheat, grated apple and cinnamon into a saucepan and gently cook over a low heat until the buckwheat softens. Add the extra almond milk if needed (note: even after cooking buckwheat still has a slight crunch. If you prefer a really soft ‘porridge’ you can soak the buckwheat for 24 hours).
Serve the buckwheat porridge hot topped with coconut yoghurt and fresh or stewed fruits like pear or apple.
