BUCKWHEAT CHOCOLATE DELIGHT

Wanting to diversify your oatmeal routine?

Not knowing how to give taste to buckwheat?

In this recipe, I will teach you how!

*And for those of you who don’t know, #buckwheat is a gluten-free grain highly rich in fiber, protein and slow-released carbs that keep you satisfied for longer!

What you need:

1 cup of raw buckwheat groats

2 tablespoons of cacao powder

2 tablespoons of flax seeds

2 tablespoons of sunflower seeds

A serving of raisins and dried mulberries (or dates)

A dash of cinnamon or nutmeg (or both!)

A dash of Himalayan salt

A 1/2 cup of frozen berries (optional!)

Instructions:

Bring three cups of water to a boil and then add your buckwheat. Let it simmer. Add the rest of the ingredients, stir well and, if you would like, top it with some berries.  They will cool it down too so it will be just ready to eat. Very easy to make and very nutritious!

This breakfast comes down to 32 protein, 34 grams fiber and 50% of your recommended daily #iron requirement! 🙀

It is also rich in zinc, folate, vitamin b 6, manganese and magnesium, and very low in sugar if you skip the dried fruit. If you do prefer more sweetness, either add more raisins/dates or a teaspoon of maple syrup. I used a drop of stevia (natural sweetener derived from a plant and, technically, sugar-free).

Hope you try and enjoy it as much as I did. Follow my blog for more healthy breakfasts and give this recipe a thumbs up.
