Indulge With This Healthy Chocolate Chia Breakfast

The wonderful citrus combo of orange and chocolate comes together with buckwheat to make a delicious healthy breakfast. Gluten-free| vegan| and full of healthy protein goodness| this orange chocolate chia buckwheat cereal is sure to give you a good morning!

Let’s be honest| I rarely make a breakfast that doesn’t involve chocolate. The word on the street was orange goes rather well with chocolate too| so this seemed like a fitting idea. I also wanted to make this super “creamy” so to speak| and with the addition of the mighty chia seed| I got the exact consistency I wanted. This creamy buckwheat cereal is already just that: creamy. But the chia seeds make it extra “thick” and lovely.

I like my oatmeals| buckwheat cereals| quinoa flakes| and all hot cereals very thick. But when I make overnight oats| I always add tons of liquid; I like those extra-soupy. I love the flavor the cocoa powder gives the liquid and like to “drink” it out of the jar once I eat all the oats.
