There is nothing better than the smell of the buckwheat simmering, coconut and cinnamon wafting through the air. Despite the name, there’s no wheat in here, so it’s gluten-free. It’s also referred to as groats. This comes together in a flash if you precook the buckwheat in the rice cooker, and the best part is, you can eat it hot or cold.

  • Ground cinnamon


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the buckwheat and 2 cups water and cook until tender, about 30 minutes.
  2. In a large saucepan, bring the milk to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and add the cooked buckwheat, cinnamon, and dates.
  3. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes, until the milk has somewhat reduced and the mixture has thickened.
