Oatless Oatmeal

I went to the store to do some grocery shopping the other day, and they didn’t have my normal gluten free oats in stock, so I decided to get creative!  I made some oatmeal without oats (well, there’s oat bran, but not whole oats!).  The result was wonderful!  The key ingredient I used is buckwheat groats.

This is not an ingredient that many are familiar with.  Most of us know that buckwheat is naturally gluten free, but the health benefits go much further than that as the following pin describes!

Buckwheat is a warming food, so it is a great ingredient to have in a nice hot bowl of porridge!  So without further ado, let’s get to that recipe!

OATLESS OATMEAL

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup buckwheat groats
  • 1/2 cup oat bran
  • 1 cup milk of your choice (I used almond milk, and it’s fantastic!)
  • 2 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • cinnamon, to taste
  • nutmeg, to taste
  • stevia, to taste

Directions

1.) Prepare the buckwheat groats and oat bran as directed on the package.
