warming buckwheat porridge

I’ve always been a big fan of porridge for breakfast. Especially in the colder months when I wake up, it’s still dark outside, and I can feel the cool air slipping into my home even when the heat is on.

In these cases, I like a throw on an oversize sweater, make a cup off coffee, and enjoy a nice bowl of warming buckwheat porridge. This breakfast has been my new go-to lately. If you’re one of these people who loves oatmeal for breakfast, then you’re going to love buckwheat porridge just as much. Plus it’s gluten-free, and easily digestible!

I like to serve up my warming buckwheat porridge with cinnamon, maple syrup, and top it off with fresh fruit and flaked coconut. You can also try different combinations with this buckwheat porridge and add flavours the same you would to oatmeal. Try making it with some brown sugar, peanut butter, or dark chocolate chips if desired!
