Chai Buckwheat Groats Hot Cereal
Breakfast is one of my favorite meals, and in the wintertime, I like it hot. Maple & Brown Sugar Multi Grain Hot Cereal, Banana-Nut Bulgur Wheat Hot Cereal with Cinnamon-Honey Yogurt, Peaches & Cream Crock Pot Steel Cut Oats, and Cranberry Orange Baked Oatmeal are some of my favorites, and now Chai Buckwheat Groats Hot Cereal has joined the bunch. Lightly sweet and loaded with spice, Chai Buckwheat Groats is hearty, healthy and a cinch to put together. It also reheats well, so leftovers guarantee a nutritious and delicious breakfast for mornings to come.
Tiny nutrition powerhouses, buckwheat groats are packed with protein, minerals, fiber and a whole host of other health benefits. They’re also gluten-free, making them a great alternative grain for people with gluten sensitivity.
To bring out their natural nutty flavor, toast the groats in a little butter before adding the liquids. It’s a worthwhile step with delicious results.
Make the most important meal of the day a great-tasting, good for you bowl of Chai Buckwheat Groats Hot Cereal. Topped with a pat of butter, a bit of brown sugar and a splash of creamy coconut milk, it’s an easy way to start the day with a healthy hot breakfast. Enjoy!
