Overnight Oats with Buckwheat

overnight oats and buckwheat

I don’t know of healthier breakfast then overnight oats with buckwheat.A filling,delicious,and nutritious breakfast with superfood ingredients and tons of health benefits.Can it get better then that??? 

Overnight oats are oats soaked overnight in liquid such as milk(any kind).I like to add buckwheat and other super foods to give it an extra boost.They are very versatile and made with variety of ingredients,flavorings,and fruits.

If not using Natures Path’s superfood cereal, you will need to use raw (light green)buckwheat, not roasted. Using raw ingredients known as “live food” has more health benefits because, when food is heated over 118 degrees F. most of the food nutrients are destroyed.Eating more raw food gives you more energy and amazing health results.

Ingredients:

1/3 cup rolled oats

1/4 cup Nature path organic Qi’a buckwheat,chia,hemp cereal*

2 tablespoons ground flax seeds

3 tablespoons plain yoghurt

3/4-1 cup milk (regular,almond,coconut,etz….)

1 tablespoon vanilla

2 tablespoons maple syrup,honey,agave,or condensed milk.

Fresh fruit and/or berries

Choice of nuts

*You can make your own;just add raw buckwheat,chia seeds,hemp seeds,almonds,and cranberries.
