Overnight Buckwheat Breakfast with Avo Yoghurt and Granola


This…is ‘to die for’…not literally, but you know what I mean.  It is super easy, has loads of health benefits and I just had to share.  It is a matter of throwing the raw buckwheat into a jar of milk and letting it soak overnight…oh, of course with the chai seeds and ground flax seeds, in this case.  It is another versatile breakfast, no hard and fast rules…just healthy and deliciously yummy to eat !!! With literally a few ingredients, you are good to go! ..

So once the raw buckwheat has soaked in milk overnight in the refrigerator, it is a matter of divide into two glasses, top with already made granola, dash of fruit, then some avo yoghurt…yes !  Avo Yoghurt 🙂 don’t freak out…it is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G… All it is, is plain yoghurt with avocado mashed into it.  It smoothes out beautifully and gives the yoghurt a cute pale greenish colour…and it is healthy!!! Top with more fruit and nuts, and drizzle with honey if you want some added sweetness ! Yum


Overnight Buckwheat Breakfast with Avo Yoghurt and Granola

Preparation time:  2 minutes (excluding the overnight time)

Total time:  10 minutes

Serves 2


100 gram (100 millilitres) Raw Buckwheat (I used Gluten-Free)

Milk (I used Dairy Free/Lactose Free Rice Milk Powder mixed up)

1 tablespoon of Chia Seeds

1 tablespoon of ground Flax Seeds

2 handfuls of Granola

Fresh Fruits of your choice, chopped

1/2 an avocado pear

3/4 tablespoons of plain yoghurt


In a measuring jug, put the 100 grams (millilitres) of raw buckwheat.

Then pour the milk into the measuring jug with the buckwheat in, and pour until it reaches 1 cup (250 millilitres).

Add the chia and flax seeds.

Cover with cling-wrap and let it sit overnight in the refrigerator.

By morning, the buckwheat would have bulked up nicely and will be a thick consistency. Divide the buckwheat mixture into two glasses.

Mash the avocado and add to the yoghurt.

To each glass, add granola, a bit of fruit and top with the avo yoghurt, more fruit and nuts and then drizzle with honey.

Enjoy 🙂

  1. Yes, yummy and healthy! Thanks Lynne, I will be thinking about this tomorrow morning when I will be attending a breakfast buffet. You know what that means – I will be eating way too much tomorrow morning! Thanks for the recipe, I will try this some morning! 🙂

    • You know what I did at first, put a couple of tablespoons of plain yoghurt in a bowl and then just add a little avo gradually (like a teaspoon mashed at a time, until you are happy. It is a little deceiving having it like that as all the other ingredients actually compliment it) . It doesn’t have to be heavily avo or green looking. I just wanted to get the added nutritional effect. Having it mild really was refreshing 🙂

    • Wonderful, thank you Dani. Just do a little mashed avo, at a time with the yoghurt, it is a little deceiving as all the other ingredients actually compliment it all. It really does not need to be heavily potent and very green. Hope you enjoy it 🙂

    • Dana, you always put a smile on my face 🙂 Buckwheat is awesome ! I thoroughly enjoy it. I always used to play with overnight oats but that can be a bit mushy, and I really like a bit of texture, so thought why not try it…it was a hit, now I don’t really bother with overnight oats. Hope you totally love this when you try it 🙂


  2. OMG, Lynne, we are on the same wavelength!!! I’ve been going crazy over overnight oats (not buckwheat) for the past few of weeks, since coming back from London, actually. I got the recipe from a vegan cookbook called “Oh She Glows.” Do you know it? It’s a cookbook that started as a blog, which you can find if you search for “Oh She Glows” blog. Let me know if you’d like the recipe and I’ll send it to you! 🙂 I haven’t tried it with buckwheat yet, but since you give it two thumbs up, I have to give it a try. I find chia makes the texture nice and veltvety. I had no idea they could absorb so much liquid, ha ha. This is the breakfast of champions, for sure. Whenever I eat my overnight oats, I keeps me fuelled for ages. Very cool!!

      • Hi Johanna! I know what you mean, the blog is AMAZING and I am drooling over the cook book. I actually bought it for my sister at x-mas, but then I borrowed it…I don’t know if I’ll ever give it back, haha! WHen I’m not having overnight oats, I start my day with a Green Monster Smoothie, and it’s totally changed the energy level I have in the mornings. Very cool to meet another fan!! 🙂

    • Wow ! that is so cool ! I wasn’t aware about the Vegan Cookbook called Oh She Glows, I will definitely check it out, and will definitely check out for the overnight oats recipe. (perhaps she will have one on her blog) If I don’t find it I will give you a shout…thanks a ton. 🙂 . I generally play a lot with the oats or buckwheat, I find they are fun, and easy to do. I love putting chia in as well, and you are right about the velvety texture 🙂 Thanks a ton for the compliment 🙂 xxx

      • It’s just such a neat coincidence! I love it. 🙂 I think the overnight oats recipe should be on her blog (http://ohsheglows.com), but if not just let me know. 😉 I’m hoping to post recipes from the cook book this summer as a series, so we’ll see! Have a great evening! xo

      • Hi Anita, I have just gone over to her blog, and she has many amazing overnight oats recipes. Her blog looks stunning and I can’t wait to actually explore it ! Thank you 🙂 I am really keen to check out her cookbook now as well, as I have been wanting a vegan/vegetarian cookbook, but it is so hard to find one, that is just perfect with recipes that I would do and with great pictures for every recipe and so forth… What a great idea to do a series from the book, that will be lovely if you do….but I am happy with whatever you do 🙂 Have a wonderful day and a great weekend my friend, and thank you again. x

      • Lynne! I’m so happy that you were able to check out the blog. Isn’t it amazing?! She does all of her own photography too. Incredible. I had the oats again this morning and it was a joy to wake up to. Please let me know what you think of them! I totally get what you mean about finding good vegan recipes. Even as a vegetarian, I often get discouraged by how complicated some recipes can be. But hers are always simple, with easy-to-find ingredients and they are delicious. So far, I have loved whatever I have made. And my husband has too, and he isn’t even a vegetarian! I’m so glad that you like the idea of the series. Soon I’ll be posting a cookie recipe that I’ll be making for my nephew’s birthday. I’m looking forward to that! Oh thank you, Lynne, I always love what you do too. Wishing you a happy weekend, mon amie!! xo

  3. I have had a bad buckwheat experience once and completely gave up on it. BUT, this is convincing me to give it another shot. So creative!! I will be keeping this recipe in mind and buying buckwheat next time I go to a bulk food store!
