Raw Buckwheat Breakfast

| Breakfast

IMG_4075IMG_4074IMG_4079This easy delicious breakfast is packed with protein and very filling.  It will keep you satisfied and full for hours.  You can play around with it and make many variations – have fun!

Ingredients (Serves 4)

  • 2 cups raw buckwheat groats soaked in water overnight, then rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • 1/4 cup agave/maple syrup or sweetener of choice
  • extras to add to the blender to flavour the porridge – I used about 1,5 teaspoons vanilla powder, lots of cinnamon, several heaped tablespoons of raw cacao powder, 1 teaspoon of maca powder and 1 heaped tablespoon of natural peanut butter.  I also added 1 tablespoon erythritol/stevia mixture as I like my breakfasts sweet:)
  • extras to stir in or add on top – I used cacao nibs, banana slices and dried cranberries

Instructions

Add rinsed and drained buckwheat, almond milk and syrup to a food processor and blend.  Add additional flavouring to suit your taste.  As always, go slow on adding extras until you are satisfied with the result – you can always add but can not remove!  I strongly suggest adding the ingredients I added just to try it out, but do not go on my quantities – go according to your taste buds:)  I layered cacao nibs and cranberries throughout…

Store leftovers in the fridge for tomorrow!

    Going to try for sure. Buckwheat groats? Rolled oats?

    Buckwheat groats is not the same as oats. You can find it at most health food shops in the same isle as you would find other grains like millet, gluten-free oats etc. Look for “dehusked buckwheat”. In Cape Town, you can find it online or at wellness warehouse and dischem nationwide. Let me know if you like it:)
