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.
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
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!
