It’s simple and it works. That’s what we all want, right? Something fool-proof, easy, and will never let us down. That’s what this recipe is to me. My fool-proof 100% perfect breakfast when I don’t know what to make (which never happens for breakfast, but sometimes I just can’t decide, so this comes in handy). Most importantly, this is my fool-proof travel breakfast. When ever I am away from home, in a hotel, visiting relatives, this is my go-to super easy yet so delicious breakfast to pack. All it requires is a plastic baggie to hold the ingredients, a microwaveable bowl, a spoon, and water. No refrigeration or difficult cooking required.
It has never let me down once and I can say this is a 100% tried and true recipe. I’ve been making it forever, yet I am just getting around to sharing! It’s comforting to know that when you are away from home and focused on things other than what to have for breakfast, you know that this is packed and there and will be ready in 3 minutes and 30 seconds. Plus it’s safe, gluten-free, soy-free, and vegan…just how I like it 😉
Really the flavors and creamy texture just add to the homey comfort this hot breakfast brings. It warms my soul inside and out. Chocolatey, peanutty, and o so creamy from the fabulous buckwheat. A hot porridge if you will, that any Goldilocks will love 😉 A perfect way to ground yourself and prepare for adventures outside of the home. And let me tell you, this beats quinoa flakes or oatmeal ten-fold. Buckwheat cereal is like to other. The texture, the creaminess, the unique subtle taste. Comfort in a bowl.
Chocolate Peanut Buckwheat Cereal
- In a microwave safe bowl, combine the buckwheat cereal, peanut flour, cocoa powder, stevia, cinnamon and ¾ cup of water, stir to combine.
- Cover the bowl with a paper towel and microwave on high for 90 seconds. Stir, and microwave again for another 60-90 seconds.
- Remove the bowl carefully (it is really hot!), add in the extra ¼ cup water. Stir until you get that creamy perfect porridge and top with chocolate chips and peanut butter!
When I travel, I measure out all the ingredients and place them in a plastic baggie. Then all I have to do is dump the contents in to a bowl when I’m ready and measure out the water. The perfect “instant” buckwheat packs! Breakfast IS the most important (and best) meal of the day, so even when I’m traveling, I must have a good breakfast. Why settle for dry cold cereal that got crushed in your suitcase? (I’ve done that before and it was no fun). This will satisfy and make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside…promise 😉
So tell me:
+ What is your go-to travel breakfast?
+ Do you have a breakfast that will always leave you feeling warm, cozy, and “at-home” even if you’re not?
