I make this recipe in batches every week, as it lasts 3-4 days in the refrigerator. It’s versatile and it pairs well with nearly everything.  A perfect start to your morning.

1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon


Fresh fruit, such as strawberries and blueberries
Nuts, such as almonds and walnuts

Hemp hearts


  1. Soak buckwheat groats overnight, or at least for four hours.
  2. Drain through sieve, and rinse thoroughly.
  3. Combine all of the porridge ingredients into a Vitamix or food processor. Pulse for 20-30 seconds, until a creamy consistency is achieved. * The mixture will appear very runny at first, but will thicken up toward the end.
  4. For a chocolatey version, add 1 tsp raw cacao powder to your Vitamix.
  5. Add toppings.
