Breakfast Groats (what’s a groat?)

IMG_0748

I found this recipe from Laura Miller’s Sidesaddle Kitchen  on her youtube channel who’s tag line is RAW. VEGAN. NOT GROSS. She’s awesome and hilarious and always posts the curtest veggie selfies.

This is a wonderful non smoothie breakfast that you can eat as a cereal or mix with fruit and add a cashew cream. I had no idea what buckwheat groats were. It’s often sold ground up so you can make an oatmeal like hot cereal but for this you’ll need the whole groat which is a seed.

You need to soak some stuff for a few hours so don’t try and make this when you’re super hungry and ready to eat.

I soaked my 2 cups of buckwheat groats overnight.

Aren’t they gorgeous?

2 cups cashews
½ cup maple syrup
¼ cup lemon juice
1 t vanilla extract
pinch of salt
½ cup coconut oil

Cashew Cream

I layer the groats, apples, then cream until I reached the top of my jar. It was sooo good. It tasted like I should be sneaking out of bed in the middle of the night to stuff my face while feeling like I’m going to get caught. Also I could hardly finish the whole freakin’ jar but a half full jar wouldn’t have made for a very good picture. Tomorrow I’m eating this  s with some blueberries. ImageImage
