Chai Buckwheat Porridge Recipe


Although winter is almost over for us here on the Gold Coast, it’s still just cool enough for a hot porridge brekky. And we have a feeling you are going to love this chai buckwheat porridge recipe! Not only easy to make but it’s also very delicious and satisfying. 

We’ve been loving porridge, buckwheat and also the regular rolled oat kind this winter. This kind of brekky in winter simply feels more satisfying, especially compared to our old favourite brekky smoothie bowl (we now save them for summer hah makes more sense).

But if you do end up loving this breakfast and want to continue it on into the summer months, you can enjoy it cold! It’s just as yum and satisfying. 

If you do make this recipe let us know, we’d love to see a bowl of your delicious porridge on Instagram! We are @themerrymakersisters.

Always merrymaking,

Emma + Carla
