Start the day with a chocolate crunch.

Chocolatey buckwheat groats, chia seeds and homemade yogurt combine to make a yummy breakfast parfait that is healthy, filling and delicious. Full of protein and fibre, this special combo will leave you feeling satisfied and ready to go.

Cacao buckwheat yogurt breakfast jars are naturally gluten and nut free but can be made dairy free by choosing to add your favourite plant-based homemade yogurt instead. Click over to our yogurt basics page for all our homemade yogurt recipes in one place.

To make buckwheat breakfast jars, there’s really not much involved. The method is just like overnight oats or chia pots however, if you fancy extra crunch you can virtually eat them right away! Letting them sit overnight in the fridge makes the grouts a bit softer, chewier and creamier. The choice is yours.
