Add some variety to your breakfast menu. Buckwheat, the gluten-free seed of the buckwheat plant, is a great source of soluble fiber and resistant starch and can be easily substituted for oats.

Print Add Add To My Grocery List


1/2 cup raw buckwheat groats, rinsed (see note)
1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
1/4 cup halved grapes, or any other fruit
1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
1/4 cup goji berries or raisins
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon alcohol free vanilla extract
1/4 cup unsweetened soy, hemp or almond milk
1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon cocoa powder or carob powder (optional)
1 banana, sliced
1 tablespoon hemp seeds


Mix all ingredients, except banana and hemp seeds, in a medium bowl. Refrigerate overnight in an airtight container. Before serving, top with sliced banana and hemp seeds.

Note: Buckwheat groats are seeds from the buckwheat plant. They are unrelated to wheat and do not contain gluten. Choose raw buckwheat groats, not kasha, which is toasted.

Great for travel. Just spent 6 days in Florida and brought this with me to have in the hotel almost every morning. I also suggest rinsing the buckwheat groats before putting in the container

Great tasting, very quick breakfast when you're on the go! My husband and I halved the recipe between the two of us. Great flavors. We substituted the cocoa powder for toasted carob powder the second time we made this and it was decadent!

At night, I pore 2 cups of boiling water over 1 cup of buckwheat groats. In the morning, it is ready to eat. I mix one cup with fruit, nuts and a touch of maple syrup. I keep the rest of the cooked buckwheat in the fridge for the next few mornings. I am wandering, do I loose much nutritional value in cooking it?

I only gave this a one star rating because although I love all of the ingredients in this, it was not good at all. The texture is not good. The nuts are not crunchy anymore and the buckwheat is still too crunchy. I followed all steps exactly and let it sit overnight. I am surprised by all the great comments. I think I will try soaking the buckwheat in water as one of the previous reviewers suggests and then just add nuts and fruit and other ingredients in the morning.

I really like this, especially the crunchy buckwheat groats. I add a little more almond milk with the banana and hemp seeds. I sometimes use all blueberries instead of adding grapes or another fruit. Strawberry and blueberry combo is very good also. It keeps well for three days in the refrigerator-great for a quick breakfast or to take with you.
