  • Calories per serving: 338

Start your day with this heart-healthy combo and you’ll stay energized and satiated for hours. To make it gluten free, use certified GF oats or substitute quinoa. Other dried fruits, such as tart cherries, apricots, or goji berries, can stand in for the raisins or dates. If you like a softer texture, add another 1/4 cup water.

  1. Bring water to boil in a small pot. Add rinsed buckwheat and millet, plus oats, apple, almonds, raisins or dates, cinnamon, cardamom, and salt. Stir. When simmering, cover, reduce heat to low, and cook 15 minutes. Turn off heat and let pot sit, covered, for 5 minutes. Stir in flaxseed and vanilla. Serve with milk or yogurt, if desired.
