  • 100 g buckwheat
  • 5 pitted dates
  • 8 ml salt
  • 15 ml coconut butter

For the topping:

  • 30 ml cinnamon
  • 30 ml cacao powder
  • 45 ml cacao nibs
  • 30 ml bee pollen
  • 45 ml seeds or nuts
  • 60 ml your favorite fruit, chopped


  1. You should activate the groats first, so soak them in cold water in a huge bowl or glass. Don't use plastic for this. Leave it on a kitchen table for 8 hours (better overnight). You can cover them with a tea towel.

  2. Next morning you should drain the groats well. This process increases the nutrients that your body will get and make it easier to digest. Buckwheat contains phytic acid that gets discharged overnight.

  4. Mix everything together, the texture should be very smooth.

  5. Pour it into a pan, add the rest of the ingredients. Bring the mix to boil, stir it every 30 seconds. Simmer for 4 minutes, doesn't let it to stick to the bottom of your pan. Pour into bowls, add toppings, serve hot.

Recipe Notes

If you don't have dates, you can use stevia or maple syrup. If you want to add raw honey, you should wait until the porridge if cool or you can destroy all healthy nutrients in honey.
