Ingredients


Buttery spray

1 cup creamy buckwheat - NOT the instant variety
(We used Bob's Red Mill Organic Creamy Buckwheat Hot Cereal.)

5 cups water

1/2 cup fat free milk powder

3 Tbsp. light butter
(We used Smart Balance Light Butter with Canola Oil.)

1 cup fat free half & half

TOPPINGS - Optional

CINNAMON
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon, ground
1 or 2 Tbsp. Splenda or Stevia (to taste)

CHOCOLATE
1 Tbsp. cocoa powder
1 or 2 Tbsp. Splenda or Stevia (to taste)

SYRUP
1/4 cup sugar free syrup
(We used Cary's Sugar Free Syrup.)


A great time to try this recipe is right after a late Saturday breakfast. Then go outside to do some yardwork, shovel snow or just play. Set an alarm on your phone as a reminder to stir it about once an hour. Then by around 12:30 you'll have a hot and delicious bowl of porridge ready to enjoy. Top it with some fresh fruit for an even more flavorful dish. This recipe can be doubled easily if you have more people.

1. Lightly coat a crock pot with buttery spray.

2. Mix together the dry buckwheat and powdered milk. Then stir in the water and butter.

3. Pour everything into a crock pot, cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours. Stir pot approximately once every hour.

4. When finished, scoop approximately 1 1/4 cups of porridge per serving. Then stir in a quarter cup of fat free half & half into each bowl and top with one of the options below.

CINNAMON TOPPING - In a small bowl, stir together 1 or 2 tablespoons of Splenda or Stevia and 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon. Then mix that into the porridge and serve.

CHOCOLATE TOPPING - In a small bowl, stir together 1 or 2 tablespoons of Splenda or Stevia and 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder. Then mix that into the porridge and serve.

Yield: 4 Servings
