Holy best breakfast in awhile batman!

Inspired by Courtney at SweetToothSweetLife and wanting to add more gluten free products into my diet (I’ve been having severe bloating lately and I have increased my carbs, so I am wanting to see if gluten has anything to do with it) I decided to get some buckwheat hot cereal, because um she did a mouth watering post on her buckwheat bowls.

Let me tell you for being my first bowl I made a wonderful concoction.

yea, i put it in a cottage cheese container. i just so happened to have finished the best cottage cheese ever the night before and thought hmm oats would be great in here! well it turned into buckwheat, but you know same thing.

Seriously if you are a cottage cheese person. Get this cottage cheese. Now. Go.

Well like I said I made one of the best concoctions I think I have made lately, and of course it just a random process of throwing in a little bit of this a dash of that. But I’ll try and approximate what I put in it for recipe sake.

Chocolate Protein Pumpkin Buckwheat Bowl

1/4 cup Bob’s Red Mill Buckwheat Hot Cereal

1-1/2 cup water (or liquid of your choice)

1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa

1 scoop chocolate protein

1-2 tbsp pumpkin

1/2 tbsp vanilla extract

1/2 tbsp cinnamon

1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

topped with coconut butter, chocolate coconut butter and a few slices of banana. i can't ever go without banana.

Not my prettiest work, but as far as tasty goes. Well yes, this was one of my tastiest.

This actually kept me a bit fuller than my oats typically do which was a great thing, but I must admit, I like the texture of my steel cut oats the best.  I am having fun experimenting with all these different grains and textures and love that I have a choice now instead of always just going with plain rolled oats.  Now don’t get me wrong, I love my rolled oats, but again the choice of texture is nice to have!
