  • 3 cups water warm
  • 1/2 cup homemade yogurt (you can substitute kefir, whey, buttermilk, lemon juice, or apple cider vinegar)
  • 1 1/2 cup oatmeal (or rolled oat groats)
  • 1/2 cup millet
  • 1/2 cup buckwheat groats
  • 1/2 cup raisins (dates or other dried fruit)
  • 1/2 cup soaked and dried nuts chopped
  • 3 cups water (warm; this is in addition to the water listed above)
Optional add-ons --------------------
  1. Combine 3 c. warm water, yogurt, oatmeal, millet, and buckwheat in a glass bowl. Cover with a lid and let sit out overnight at room temperature. This needs to soak at least 7 hours and can be as long as 24 hours. If you're a night owl like me, you can prepare this a few hours before you go to bed.

  2. In the morning, pour the mixture into a large, heavy pan. Add the dried fruit, nuts – if you’re using them, and the additional 3 c. warm water.

  3. Heat to a boil. Reduce heat and stir occasionally until thick and creamy. 

Recipe Notes

We like to add coconut and cinnamon with a sprinkling of stevia - but have fun experimenting and making your own versions!
