Buckwheat Breakfast Muesli Recipe

I’ve been having some form of this for breakfast for many years. It’s so easy, fulfilling, inexpensive and nutritious (one serving counts for 3 of your 5 a day). It can be used as a base and customised to your taste and what’s in season at the moment. When I worked in an office I would make enough for 2-3 days at a time and just chop the fresh fruit to add each day.

Ingredients (per serving)

  • 1 cup / 160g raw dry buckwheat
  • 3 table spoons sesame seeds
  • 1 table spoon of raisins / currents / any dried vine fruit
  • Fresh fruit of choice – I used apple for the photo
  • 1 tea spoon of honey (optional)
  • Cinnamon,  to taste


  1. Soak the buckwheat for 30 mins. Then drain and if possible sprout is by rinsing every 12 hours for 2-3 days until the buckwheat tails sprout as long as the seeds. If no time for this just soak for 30 mins and then rinse, drain and use.
  2. Grind the sesame seeds until they are all broken up.
  3. Finely slice the fruit of your choice, I usually use apple / pear / kiwi / banana / blueberry / strawberry but just pick what ever your have and like.
  4. Mix all together, sprinkle on cinnamon and enjoy.
  5. As the buckwheat is sprouted it needs to be put in the fridge if not eaten straight away. It will last for 2-3 days. You will be able to smell if it has gone off.
