Bananas Foster Buckwheat Breakfast Recipe



Buckwheat is a pseudo-grain food that can be used in a variety of ways. It is technically not a grain because it comes from a plant and not a grass. Despite its name, buckwheat is a wheat-free product. One way I use buckwheat is as a cereal in an oatmeal-like fashion.  The recipe below is one that I came up with that is delicious, a good source of protein, a good source of fiber, and vegan.

Bananas Foster Buckwheat Breakfast

½ cup Kasha (roasted buckwheat)

2 cups Water

Pinch of salt

1 Tbsp. Coconut Oil

1 Banana, sliced up

¼ cup Ground Flaxseed

½ cup chopped Walnuts

2 Tbsp. Maple Syrup (or more to taste)

½ tsp. Rum Extract (optional)

Bring water, salt, and coconut oil to a boil. Slowly stir in kasha. Reduce heat and cook for 10-12 minutes, or until all water is absorbed.

In a ramekin or small cup, combine maple syrup and rum extract.

Add banana, flaxseed, walnuts, and syrup to the cooked kasha and stir.

Serves 2.
