Is Buckwheat Gluten-Free?

Buckwheat may seem out-of-bounds if you’re on the gluten-free diet. But despite its name, buckwheat is not wheat. In fact, it’s not a grain at all, it’s a seed. If you or someone you cook for suffers with celiac disease and gluten sensitivity can rest easy and enjoy buckwheat! In addition, roasted buckwheat groats known as kasha, is also gluten-free.

Try this warm buckwheat cereal to jumpstart your day.

Jazz this dish up as you see fit. This recipe is reminiscent of many of our oatmeal recipes. In this instance, we are combining the overnight oats technique (soaking overnight) with the cooking technique of conventional oatmeal. It should come as no surprise that we recommend buckwheat honey to sweeten this potentially otherwise savory dish. Besides helping with sore throats, we find that this honey stands up well in recipes for bread-making and for making candied nuts.

Warm Buckwheat Cereal is less chalky than overnight oats, and it’s a nice warm breakfast with a satisfying rich flavor. It also cooks in half the time of our Power Porridge.

How to Make Buckwheat Cereal

We think you will enjoy this filling, healthy, breakfast bowl of cereal.

Step One: Gather ingredients

You’ll need buckwheat groats or raw buckwheat, whichever you prefer. You can make almond milk or use whatever nut milk you have on-hand. You’ll need some of our honey, as we mentioned earlier, Buckwheat Honey may be the perfect match for this cereal. You’ll need cinnamon and vanilla extract. For your seeds go for chia and flax seeds. You can add your favorite nuts if you’d like. We also recommend adding some unsweetened organic coconut flakes. They’re so delicious when toasted. Last, but not least, grab some fresh fruit or berries. In this preparation, we’re using blueberries.

Step Two: Prepare and mix the ingredients

Mix buckwheat groats, chia seeds, nut milk, water, honey, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt in an airtight container. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Step Three: Cook and serve

In the morning, add the mixture into a small dutch oven on medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or when the desired thickness is achieved. Garnish with fruit, toasted unsweetened coconut, flax seeds and a drizzle of honey.
