Buckwheat groats breakfast recipe

All you need to do to make a delicious breakfast is to fill a jar with ingredients. The goats absorb other flavors really well while having a crunchy texture. They are a great choice for everyone who don’t like mushy foods.

Even though the “wheat” is in the name, buckwheat are seeds. The groats have a mild taste and don’t have any bitter taste. They are like plain noodles that absorb every flavor.

One bowl of this porridge will fill you up and it’s bursting with textures and flavors, not to mention all the nutrients your body will get. You can double the recipe and prepare buckwheat in advance. Store in the fridge for up to 3 days.

For everyone who likes oats, buckwheat porridge has a similar taste. When it’s raw, it maintains the crunch without being hard to bite or chew. Even though it’s similar to oats, it is healthier for you.

For the buckwheat porridge:

  • 250 ml buckwheat
  • 60 ml chia seeds
  • 750 ml coconut milk
  • 250 ml water
  • 30 ml vanilla
  • 5 ml cinnamon
  • 4 ml salt

For the toppings:

  • 125 ml walnuts
  • 375 ml any fresh fruit or berries
  • 125 ml shredded coconut


  1. Mix all ingredients for the porridge in a bowl. Cover it and let it sit in a fridge for at least 8 hours. It will taste better if you leave it overnight.

  2. Place the porridge in a pot and cook for 10 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes. Make sure the porridge doesn't stick to the bottom of the pot.

  3. Add toppings and serve warm.

Recipe Notes

I like using coconut milk but any type of milk will do the job. I don't use additional sweeteners because I like fresh fruits. If you want to make it sweeter, you should drizzle the cooked porridge with maple syrup or honey.

Your porridge will be thicker if you let it boil for more than 10 minutes. You can adjust the thickness to your taste, so don't be afraid to experiment.

You can serve it immediately after cooked or save it for the next day. I like the cold version as well. It can sit in a fridge for 3 days if you keep it in a sealed container. The porridge will be even more flavorful the next day.
