Easy Buckwheat Breakfast Porridge

Ready to serve buckwheat porridge

Thanks for sharing!

I am a morning person and one of my favorite ways to start the day is with a bowl of hot, creamy Easy Buckwheat Breakfast Porridge. This delicious breakfast keeps me full until lunch and I love how quickly it comes together. In addition to all of that, this yummy breakfast is naturally gluten-free and can easily be made dairy-free!

Nutritious Buckwheat!

It seems to me that buckwheat is extremely under-appreciated, which is surprising because it really is a nutrient-rich powerhouse. 

Actually, buckwheat is not a grain at all, rather it’s a fruit seed and a tremendous alternative to traditional grains. Because buckwheat is naturally gluten-free it’s safe for anyone following a gluten-free diet. It possesses a unique and slightly nutty/earthy flavor that I really enjoy. 

NOTE: To keep buckwheat fresher longer I like to store it in an air-tight glass jar with a hinged lid. (As seen in the picture above.)

Cranberry White Chocolate Buckwheat Pancakes is yet another delicious recipe that features buckwheat. (You can read more interesting facts about buckwheat in that post.)  

Cooking buckwheat cereal

Just Add Water & Pinch of Salt!

Most of the time I use Bob’s Red Mill Organic Creamy Buckwheat Hot Cereal to make Easy Buckwheat Porridge (although feel free to use your favorite brand). I like how quickly it cooks and that it provides 3 grams of high-quality protein per serving.

Super Versatile!

Flavor combos of buckwheat breakfast porridge are extremely adaptable. 

Try different ingredient combinations such as:

  • Individual serving of buckwheat porridge

    Add Your Favorite Toppings!

    One of my all-time favorite topping combinations is fresh blueberries + walnuts and/or pecans + brown sugar (or honey) + coconut milk.

    A Touch of Sweetener!

    Naturally, you can enjoy this tasty breakfast without adding any sweetener at all, however, I find that I enjoy a hint of sweetness (as seen in the picture above).
