Ingredients

  • ¼ cup soaked buckwheat groats rinsed
  • ¾ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2-3 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tablespoons peanut butter or other nut butter of choice
  • Optional: banana slices or other fruit to top

Instructions

For soaked buckwheat groats:

  • Rinse raw buckwheat groats then place in a jar or small container. Add enough warm water to cover the groats completely and then let soak at room temperature for at least 6 hours – I usually just soak mine overnight.
  • After soaking, rinse the groats again before using.

For the buckwheat bowl:

  • Place rinsed, soaked groats, almond milk, and a pinch of salt in a small saucepan over medium-high heat.
  • Bring to a low boil and then reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for 15 minutes, stirring periodically until groats have softened but are still chewy. Note: it’s okay if it’s still a little too liquidy, as the buckwheat will continue to soak up the milk as it sits.
  • Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract, maple syrup and cocoa powder.
  • Pour into a bowl and add peanut butter plus any other toppings of choice. Enjoy immediately or store in fridge and eat cold the next day.
