1¼ cups (300 mL)unsweetened soy milk†
1 Tbsp (7 g)
1 Tbsp (15 mL)
1 tsp (5 mL)maple syrup, plus more to taste (optional)
¼ tspground cinnamon

- Add the buckwheat and milk to a saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook covered with a lid for 15 minutes, stirring often.
- When cooked, add the mashed banana, cocoa powder, tahini, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Stir until heated through.
- Remove from the heat and cover with a lid. Let sit for 5 minutes. This helps to soften the grain further.

- †If using raw buckwheats, toast them first on a dry skillet over medium heat for 4 - 5 minutes until golden, stirring throughout.
- †Nutrition tip: aim to use plant-based milk/yogurt that is fortified with calcium.
- Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

Hello! Can I use a different whole-grain than buckwheat groats? I would like to use spelt.
I loved this recipe, and I'm not usually a fan of tahini. I had a nearly-full jar from when a friend visited not long ago, so was searching for recipes. I'm so glad I found your site! I've played around with the recipe, too, subbing applesauce for banana, and after the tahini was gone I've tried both peanut butter and almond butter. All turned out fantastic.
Teff is my usual go-to for my morning porridge, but this buckwheat porridge is a nice change. It's creamy and chewy at the same time. I like my porridge sweet so I added a couple of chopped dates as I was cooking it. It's basically dessert. I will surely make this often!
This recipe converted me into an buckwheat lover. I love the chocolate taste
Hi Team, am swathi, live in melbourne, your recipes are awesome, easy to make,very tasty too. Thankyou!
Appreciate your help!
Ja dit was top. Heb de kaneel wel vervangen met Kardemom en Komijn vanwege het klote weer.
So happy with this recipe! I often watch your videos and I'm always very impressed by your creativity and the effort you put in your recipes and videos.
Now I finally got to try a recipe out myself and I absolutely love the result!
Did you ever consider to publish your recipes in a book? I'm sure a lot of people would love that.
Thank you so much Pick up Limes and greetings from Switzerland <3
Just tried this recipe this morning with regular buckwheat (couldn't find kasha) it's delicious and so easy to make. Do happy to have found a new recipe for my breakfast 🙌❤️
I am absolutely in love with this recipe!
Made it first about a month ago. Since then I eat your kasha porrige on Sundays morning with my Family. We prepare a bunch of it, so every of us can eat a portion on some other day.
We live in Germany, but come from Poland, where pople eat buckweat quite often - but the recipes are soooo boring. It would be great if you could make subtitels in Polish- so even older generation, that doesn't speak English, could dive into your wonderful, jummy and healthy vegan world.
Thank you very much Pick up limes! You make the world a better place😋
Beautiful dish! Especially for those who can’t eat oats. Great source of fibre protein and deliciousness😘👌
I love watching your videos but I admit there are only a few recipes that I end up making myself, because I am more of an improviser in the kitchen.
For this porridge however, I saw the video went straight to the supermarket to get some buckwheat and it has become my go to breakfast when I have a bit more time in the morning ☺️
Thank you for introducing me to buckwheat as a breakfast 🙏🏼
How nourishing and delicious . I add my homemade Nutella instead (from PUL) and it’s so satisfying! Thank you PUL team ❤️🔥
Liked the recipe a lot ma'am. You can make a video on Indian Dosa too.
Keep growing 🌟 Love from India😇
Great recipe and breakfast! I added a bit more maple syrup....but that could be the Canadian in me talking 🤣
I love this recipe! I have never really enjoyed kasha, because its bitter taste which I didn’t know how to combine and make tasty dishes… I have rather preferred the raw, because its milder taste and nutrient content… However, I had more kasha on hand. So, I have tried some recipes with it, but couldn’t find something really good. And your recipe came at the right moment! Thank you very much! I really like the creamy texture and how you use the bitter taste to make something really delicious! Thank you!
Wow, wow, wow! this is the only thing i can say after tasting such a delicious breakfast!I did not add the maple syrup, but it was sweet enough for me just with the banana. Buckwheat is not appreciated enough nowadays :D. Thank you very much for the recipe! Amazing!
This breakfast was delicious and very filling!
I am trying to incorporate a wider variety of whole grains in my diet but there are not many recipes of more «adventurous» grains in the net, so I was really happy to see this. And such a delicious one!!
Thank you Sadia and Team!
What an amazing recipe! Astonishing! I am ready for more buckwheat recipes!
LOVE THIS RECIPE!!!! I have been cooking with kasha for ages now (white and roasted one) making waffles, soups and meatballs - but breakfast!!! this was heaven:) could you tell me where do you get white kasha in NL? (I usually ask my mum for sending it from Poland... but this is an expensive endeavour) Thanks <3
This was my first time cooking with buckwheat (other than buckwheat flour) and it was delicious! The toppings really levelled up the bowl and I loved the addition of mashed banana. It made a tasty alternative to oats, although oats for breakfast will always be my number one! 🙈
This is great! and definitely comfort food for me which is so surprising when it comes to kasha;-) you are a magician, thanks for all the good ideas!!!
Hey, I recently tried this recipe for breakfast, and I loved it. It was delicious and so filling at the same time.
This was delicious! For breakfast or dessert!
Love how you make eating such an adventure. Another first time buckwheat person here. This was Delicious.
Another great recipe! This was my first time having buckwheat and it was very good. I absolutely love porridge but I really loved the texture buckwheat brings compared to oats! 10/10 would recommend :-)
Kinda curious but do you think the buckwheat could be substitute with barley? If not I am still kinda curious to see a breakfast recipe using barley, just an idea.
A great suprise! It fills my love for chocolate and sweet, it is soooo satisfying. And also it makes me love hot breakfasts. I don't like oatmeal because of its mushy consistency. This one is an amazing alternative. Many thanks for this easy and delicious recipe!
Not a fan of kasha, but in this recipe it actually tasted good and you can bet I will be making it tomorrow morning, too! This is such a great idea for using up all the kasha from my pantry 🙂
Will definitely try this! The taste of buckwheat ususally makes me gag, but I would love to eat it more. Could you come up with more savoury recipes with buckwheat grain? Thanks <3
I’m the first to admit chocolate for breakfast is the last thing on my mind. I only try this recipe because I wanted to use the buckwheat in the back of my cupboard but I’m glad I did! This tastes like the chocolate custard and ice cream my mum made when we were kids. The best bit is that I didn’t feel hungry for ages.
I tried it without the cocoa powder and added some blueberries and I loved it! Thanks for this great recipe :)
This is so good! I cannot stop making this :D
Thank you for sharing this delicious Chocolate Banana Buckwheat Porridge. I’ve tried it this morning and it was soooooo yummy 😋 🥰
Loved this porridge as a weekend treat, I added some cherry jam as a topping :)
Is the result the same if I roast the desired amount of buckwheat on the stove right before cooking it with the milk?
Thanks for yummy recipes and high quality videos ;)
This looked so good I had to make it straight away even though I had almond milk and cacao powder instead of soy and cocoa. It worked really well also, keeping this in my weekend breakfast rotation!
I just tried out this recipe - it is incredibly tasty! The consistence did not really work out, I will try to put less milk next time so that it won't be too liquid ;) By the way I can't wait for the Android version of your app to launch! :D I wanted to ask if the contents of the app and the blog will be the same or will there be some differences? Will the app be available for free? Thank you again for the inspiration to the whole PUL team <3
pranked my partner with this today 😎 they didnt expect buckwheat to be sweet and served as porridge. turned out fluffy and delicious! just a bit weird after eating buckwheat for dinner my whole life. by the way beware 2 portions in the recipe makes 3
This was my breakfast today. I was out of plant based milk, so I replaced it with water. Still - it was great breakfast, I will surely try it one more time. As celiac with oat alergy I really appreciate this option :)
Looks delish! One question: does the nutrition info include optional toppings or it covers the main ingredients only? I’ve started to pay a closer attention to my dietary intake so such information would be much appreciated :)
i am so excited to try this recipe! i've had a jar of buckwheat just waiting to be used for months now so this post couldn't have come at a better time. i love that i can always rely on pick up limes to teach me how to use up an ingredient lying at home.
Looks absolutely delicious!! Have to try it!
I thought kasha was only known in Eastern Europe. I will definitely try this recipe. love your recipes. Regards Kasia not Kasha 😉
