This has been my latest favourite breakfast, I love how creamy and indulgent it is and yet so packed with goodness! I really think buckwheat is such an underrated grain (is technically a seed) and definitely not used enough. It’s packed with easily digestible protein, antioxidants, high in fibre and rich in vitamins and minerals. I love pairing it with creamy peanut butter, banana and One Earth Vanilla blend, it just create almost like a caramel flavour which goes so well with the stewed plums.
¾ cup of buckwheat groats
1/4 cup of almond milk
1 pitted dates
1 tablespoon of smooth peanut butter
1tablespoon of One Earth Vanilla Zilla blend
1 frozen banana
For the stewed plums:
2 ripe plums destoned and cut in half
2 tablespoons of coconut sugar
A splash of water
Fresh or frozen berries
The night before soak the buckwheat groats with plenty of water. Drain the buckwheat groats and make sure to rinse them very well under fresh water. They will have a slightly slimy layer on top, don’t worry, it’s totally normal. Just rinse them properly.
To make the stewed plums just place the coconut sugar and water in a pan on a medium heat. When the coconut sugar syrup starts to bubble add the plums. Cook the plums onto 1 side for a couple of minutes and then turn them on the other side and repeat the process until they are soft and squishy.
To make the buckwheat pudding place all the ingredients into a blender and blend until completely smooth and creamy. If your blender is struggling add more almond milk.
Serve the pudding with the syrupy plums and topping of your choice.
