Cinnamon Bun Porridge

Cinnamon Bun Porridge

I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to think of Cinnamon Bun as a flavor for porridge! It’s super easy, using only a couple ingredients, and UNBELIEVABLY delicious!!!! The dates make the porridge incredibly sweet and the cinnamon adds the perfect spice to balance it, exactly like a cinnamon bun! This is definitely one of my new favorites!

You will need:

1/4 cup buckwheat flakes
1/4 cup TVP (I use this for added protein)
this recipe will also work with 1/2 cup oats or buckwheat flakes
3/4 – 1 cup water, depending on your preferred consistency
1/3 cup egg whites
1 ripe banana
2-3 soft pitted medjool dates (I used 3)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 – 1/2 tsp cinnamon, to taste


In a small sauce pan, bring water to a boil. Add your buckwheat and TVP (or oats) and lower heat, allowing to thicken, approximately 3-5 minutes. While this cooks, cut your banana in half, mashing one half completely into a puree and saving the over half for your topping. Chop your dates into small pieces and add them, along with the mashed banana, to the sauce pan, stirring to combine. Add cinnamon and vanilla and stir again, then pour in the egg whites. Stir occasionally until the egg whites cook and the porridge becomes fluffy. Pour into a bowl and top with the remaining banana and anything else you want! I definitely recommend peanut butter, and I also had a plum, but this breakfast would be good enough with just the banana and PB!
