Makes 2 servings

For those who enjoy an easy no-cook overnight cereal, you must give this a try! Mix a jarful of yumminess up at night for a filling and healthy breakfast at-the-ready.  The groats absorb the liquid yet maintain their slightly crunchy texture, making this a perfect option for those who find oats a little too mushy.  Buckwheat groats are nutrient packed, gluten-free seeds that are so good for you. They are a good source of fiber, protein, rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids and anti-oxidants providing several health benefits, including lowering inflammation, improving digestion, blood sugar control and improving heart health. 


  • ½ cup raw Buckwheat Groats
  • 2 tablespoons Chia seeds
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup milk of choice (I typically use unsweetened Almond milk)
  • 1-2 tablespoons raw honey
  • 2 tablespoons Hemp seeds
  • 1 tablespoon toasted Coconut Chips
  • 1 tablespoon Pumpkin Seeds
  • ½ cup chopped Strawberries
  • ½ cup Blueberries


  • Most packaged groats do not require rinsing but if purchased in bulk section then rinse groats under water to remove chalky coating.
  • In a glass jar (I use a wide mouth mason jar) combine groats, chia seeds, cinnamon, vanilla and honey.  Stir in the milk, and then cover and refrigerate overnight.  
  • The following morning stir well before eating to evenly distribute the oats.  
  • Sprinkle with hemp seeds, coconut chips, pumpkin seeds, strawberries and blueberries or any other desired toppings of choice.
  • Add an extra drizzle of honey if more sweetness is preferred.
  • Enjoy!
