Say hello to the new oatmeal in town or should I say BUCKmeal since it’s made with buckwheat flakes! I’ve been a huge fan of buckwheat for 2 years now. Don’t let the name fool you, it’s not actually a wheat. Buckwheat is naturally grain-free and gluten-free so it’s perfect for anyone with an intolerance. It’s also great for anyone who wants to add a new oatmeal variation in their life to spice things up!
Like your typical jar of overnight oats, these grain-free oats are SO EASY to make. If you’re busy and on-the-go in the morning, you definitely need to start incorporating overnight oats into your routine. Place all the ingredients in a jar and shake it… like a polaroid picture, duh! (Is there any other way? haha)
I’ve been making these buckwheat oats at least once a week lately and I am obsessed. If you’ve never tried buckwheat, you should definitely give it a try to broaden your oat horizons!
I’m currently eating a bowl of this peanut butter cup oatmeal right now as I type and it’s oh-so creamy.
Get your jar out and let’s get shaking!
