Holy Good Fats and Fibre Brekkie: A Holistic Nutritionist's Recipe

Updated: Nov 27, 2023

If your mornings are a rush, I get it! This is my favourite blend of goodness, as a wellness and nutrition coach, that will help your breakfast be ready in a snap! Blending buckwheat, hemp and chia, this cereal blend is loaded with complex carbohydrates, including fibre, protein and good fats. You make the whole jar and it will last for a couple weeks in your cupboard.

My mornings tend to be busy so I need a breakfast that isn't just quick, but will keep me full for the whole morning. After fiddling with taste and texture I came up with this one. 

In a large glass canning jar mix together 1 cup each of dry creamy buckwheat, hemp hearts and chia seeds and 1/2 cup of unsweetened shredded coconut. Also add in 1 TBSP of coconut sugar and 2 TBSP of cinnamon.  Secure the lid and shake it all up together. 

Take 2-3 TBSP of this mix, along with 1 TBSP of ground flaxseed in a bowl. Here you can do what you want with it. You can add your favourite milk beverage, a couple TBSP of coconut milk, or pour boiled water on top. Whichever liquid you choose, make sure you let it sit for a few minutes to let everything soften up and the excess liquid be absorbed by all the high fibrous chia and flax. 

Possible additions to this can be blueberries, banana slices or dried cranberries. If you would like more protein have a boiled egg or slices of avocado on the side. That's what's great about's totally up to you. Get creative and make it your own with what you like to add! Easy healthy recipes like this are a create way to dub out crappy sugar-filled cereals from the store. Want more info on healthy choices? GRAB my 5 Steps to a Healthier You Guide HERE!
