This is one of those recipes that I just randomly threw together one night in the hopes that it would work out in the morning and luckily it did.
I guess it is almost like a bircher muesli but this one is gluten free and dairy free. Sometimes it’s the most simplist breakfasts like this that end up becoming one of your favs.
The nuts and seeds soak overnight releasing all their amazing nutrients and allowing for easier digestion. You can either eat as is or heat it up on the stove by adding a little more coconut mylk to have a warm porridge., yummo!
Don’t let the list of ingredients put you off, you simply just add them all into a bowl before adding your coconut mylk and vanilla and presto! All the hard work is done.
Overnight Superfood Soak
- 1/2 cup of rinsed buckwheat
- 1/4 cup of chia seeds
- 2 tbsps of pumpkin seeds
- 2 tbsps of sunflower seeds
- 1/4 cup of shredded coconut
- 1 tsp of hemp seeds (optional)
- 1/4 cup of crushed nuts (I used walnuts)
- 1/4 tsp of cinnamon
- 1/4 cup of raisins
- 1-1 1/2 cups of coconut mylk
- 1 TSP of vanilla protein powder (check the ingredients to make sure it’s not full of nasties, optional)
- Toppings: Honey and banana
Place all ingredients into a bowl and mix well.
Place in the fridge overnight to soak.
In the morning top with honey and banana or even some coconut yoghurt. You could also add in some raw cacao nibs for a chocolate hit.
If having warm simply pop into a small saucepan and add a little extra liquid. Cook just enough to heat through.
You can double or triple the dry ingredients and store in a airtight jar ready for more yummy breakfasts and just add the wet ingredients when making it.
