Buckwheat Porridge with Caramelized Apple, Spiced Maple Syrup, Roasted Pumpkin Seeds & Pecans. So yummy, you will want it every morning!

Here I am with another caramelized apple recipe, lol. However, this time the main feature is Buckwheat Porridge that is a pure delight and you can have it with any fruits you wish. I am going to try it with berries for sure and some tropical fruits as well.

It must be my new obsession now, because it is absolutely delicious, highly nutritious and satisfying. It is just like having a dessert! By the way, if you are not familiar with BUCKWHEAT, you can read more about it HERE. It is were popular in Eastern Europe, especially Poland and Ukraine, although, not so much in my country, which is Slovakia.

Nevertheless, I have already made few recipes with buckwheat flour for example BUCKWHEAT WAFFLES. With actual buckwheat I made BEET BURGER, but I am going make few more, so please stand by.

However, if you have an experience with buckwheat, I would love to read about it. I am still learning about it, and I am open to suggestions.

Thank you so much for visiting and have a wonderful week.

They say,
“beautiful art is an extension of the soul”.
And food is a form of art, very pretty art that emits and shows the beauty of the soul that crafted it.
I always pause, ponder and look at your paintings and say “there is an amazing soul behind this art”.
