Overnight Buckwheat Pudding, 4 ways! (GF, V, DF)

Buckwheat puddings are a great alternative to overnight oats for those that can’t tolerate oats. They’re quick, easy and satisfying.



Since finding out I was Coeliac, one thing I always missed was a warm bowl of porridge, and buckwheat became my replacement. It is perfect to keep you fuelled all morning.


Despite sounding like it is anything but gluten free, buckwheat does not contain any wheat and is a great ‘pseudo-cereal’, acting as a wholegrain in gluten free diets. It has a nutty flavour, is high in protein (right after oats), provides energising carbohydrates, good fats, nutrients like zinc, copper and vitamin B1, as well as gut-loving fibres and polyphenols.


All this in less than 450 calories!
