Breakfast “Dessert” Porridge

Breakfast “Dessert”  Porridge … fast, easy & 100% nutritious!Buckwheat Porradge


I should mention that I purchased all of my ingredients at Steve’s Independent.  If you purchase chia seeds, buckwheat (or oats) and toppings (ie. seeds and nuts) at bulkbarn, you may save a few extra dollars (I find the chia seeds less expensive there).




  • 1 cup raw buckwheat groats OR steel cut oats – soaked
  • 1/2 cup plain coconut milk OR hemp milk OR rice milk OR cows milk OR (you get the idea)
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup, or honey
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Optional Toppings:

  • berries
  • seeds (I used sesame, sunflower & pumpkin… school safe this way)
  • nuts (choose raw, for optimal nutrition, but don’t send to school!
  • unsweetened coconut

Easy-Peasy Directions:

  1. Soak the buckwheat groats in water overnight, in a bowl.  If you want to eat it faster, I think you could get away with soaking for 1 hour.  The soaking allows the film on top of the groats to come off.  If you use steel cut oats, it will allow the oats to swell.
  2. Rinse and drain the groats
  3. Place all ingredients (not the toppings) into a blender and lightly blend until mixed.  You could use a hand held immersion blender, or magic bullet.
  4. Portion into bowls, and add toppings

*** place into a reusable and tight sealing container for a FANTASTIC and nutritious lunch!
