Breakfast: Overnight Buckwheat Parfait

yummy personalized breakfast parfait!
Serves: 1
1/4 cup raw buckwheat groats,soaked in water overnight
3/4 cup almond milk (I used 1 cup, but it was a bit too liquidy)
2 tbsp chia seeds (no subs)
1 ripe large banana (mash half, chop other half)
1/4 tsp cinnamon and vanilla extract, optional
rolled oats (optional)
1 tablespoon maple syrup
Other options to add in!
crumbled up muffins/loaves
crumbled up granola bars
nut or seed butter
apple/pumpkin butter
dried fruit

other fresh fruits
banana soft serve
carob powder
mini dark chocolate chips
homemade chocolate sauce
chocolate avocado pudding
protein powder

Add the buckwheat groats into a bowl and cover with water. Stir. Place in the fridge overnight, or for at least a few hours, uncovered is fine. In a separate bowl, whisk together the chia seeds, almond milk, banana, and optional cinnamon and vanilla. Whisk well until no chia clumps remain. Place in fridge overnight, uncovered is fine. In the morning, rinse the buckwheat with cold water in a strainer until no slimy bits remain. Add rinsed and strained buckwheat into the chia mixture and stir well. Top with your desired toppings or make a parfait. Just before serving, drizzle a small amount of pure maple syrup on top to bring it all together.
