Kasha Breakfast Recipe

Reader Recipe: Warm Kasha With Cinnamon Apples

Here's a healthy breakfast to try from the OnSugar blog Sophie's Sweeties. Sophie shares her recipe for warm kasha with cinnamon apples.

Ever heard of kasha? Maybe you know it as buckwheat groats. Kasha is quick to cook (it only takes 15 minutes!), full of essential amino acids and vitamins, and has a really unique nutty flavor. One cup of cooked kasha has 155 cals, 5.7 g protein, 4.5 g fiber, 1 g fat, and 1.3 mg iron. Good stuff right there! To cook kasha, combine one part kasha to two parts water and simmer for 15 minutes. This morning I swapped kasha for my regular bowl of oatmeal.

Combine 1 cup of cooked kasha, 1 Splenda packet, a few dashes of cinnamon, half an apple (first diced and microwaved for 1 minute), and a spoonful of Walden Farm's Apple Butter. Stir the ingredients together and microwave the bowl for about 1 minute. Top with cold milk and a dash more of cinnamon.

In case you're wondering about the apple butter I used, it's from a company called Walden Farms, which makes products with 0 cals, 0 fat, 0 carbs, 0 gluten, and uses Splenda instead of sugar. Love! http://www.waldenfarms.com/ The apple butter is a little gelatinous straight out of the jar, but it melts when heated. Give it a try!
