Warm Buckwheat Groats with Apples and Cranberries
Adapted from: Jenn Cuisine, jenncuisine.com
1 cup buckwheat groats, rinsed
1 Tbsp coconut oil (or butter)
1 cup coconut milk (I use canned coconut milk. I require dairy-free recipes for my son who's sensitive to cow's milk. You could use cow's milk or other alternative milk, too.)
1 1/2 cups water
1 stick cinnamon
1 pinch nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
1 large apple, cored and chopped
1/4 cup dried cranberries
100% pure maple syrup and extra milk for drizzling
1. Combine the buckwheat groats, coconut oil, coconut milk, water, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a large saucepan over high heat, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 30 minutes or until the groats are soft and tender and the liquid is absorbed.
2. Once cooked, remove from heat and stir in the apples and cranberries.
3. Drizzle with maple syrup and extra milk before serving. (The fruit adds a nice hint of sweetness, so you could skip the maple syrup, if you like. Or you could opt for stevia for sweetness, too.) Enjoy!
