Cacao Buckwheat Porridge

Ingredients (serves 2):

1 cup buckwheat groats
1 cup water
½ cup almond milk (or more)
1 ½ tbsp cacao powder
2 bananas, chopped
½ tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp honey
a pinch of salt
bee pollen, almond butter and cacao nibs to serve


In a small pan, bring the buckwheat, water and almond milk to the boil then simmer slowly for twenty minutes or so, stirring regularly, until the groats are soft and creamy but still have some bite. (You may need to add a little more almond milk if it is too dry).

Remove from the heat. Stir in the banana, cacao, honey, salt and cinnamon, transfer to bowls and serve with a splash of almond milk and a sprinkling of cacao nibs, bee pollen and  a dollop of almond butter.
