OBSESSED WITH THIS BREAKFAST
In this post, I’m going to show you how to make a super delish + healthy breakfast porridge with oats, buckwheat and banana.
I’ve been loving this banana, buckwheat & oat porridge so much at the moment! I often have oatmeal for breakfast – but sometimes it’s nice to change things up a little bit.
BUCKWHEAT IS THE NEW “IT” FOOD
Buckwheat by itself doesn’t make a very nice breakfast porridge, but when combined with oats it can be pretty yummy. If I’m feeling particularly hungry in the morning then I like to make this porridge because buckwheat is really filling – and it’s full of healthy nutrients. In this recipe I use coconut oil & banana to make it extra creamy. The coconut oil also adds some healthy fats – and the banana helps to sweeten it up!
I usually top my breakfast porridge with unsweetened nut butter or some raw nuts. This adds healthy protein and makes it a well balanced meal – it also gives it that extra something special! I find that almond butter or macadamia nut butter go really nicely with this recipe, or a couple of raw almonds or walnuts.
This recipe is gluten, dairy and sugar-free. I hope you love it as much as I do! xo
