Raw Buckwheat Porridge

We are eating raw breakfast options from Raw Foods for Dummies this summer and LOVE the raw cinnamon oatmeal!!! It is very similar to this buckwheat version, but the oatmeal uses apple instead of coconut. Our son preferred the apples over the coconut.

Serves 2

  • 1cup raw buckwheat groats, soaked overnight, drained, and rinsed
  • 1/2cup almond milk
  • tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2vanilla bean, seeds scraped out, or 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2tablespoon ground flax meal
  • Pinchsea salt
  • 1/4cup shredded, unsweetened coconut (or half an apple)
  1. Place the buckwheat groats in a food processor and pulse a few times to break down. add the almond milk, maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla bean, flax, and sea salt, and process till the mixture has a smooth consistency (but with some texture remaining).
  2. Pulse in the coconut and adjust seasonings. Divide porridge into four bowls and serve, topped with fresh berries, chopped nuts, or sliced bananas.
