Organic Creamy Buckwheat Hot Cereal is freshly milled from the finest organic buckwheat groats. This gluten free porridge cooks quickly and makes a wonderfully filling whole grain breakfast.


Organic Creamy Buckwheat Cereal is milled from premium quality organic buckwheat. The robust buckwheat flavor is a cereal lover's delight, making this cereal one of our most popular gluten free cereals.

Buckwheat is one of the best sources of protein in the plant kingdom. Buckwheat is not related to wheat—in fact, it's not even technically a grain, though it is treated like a cereal crop. Buckwheat is actually the seed of a plant related to rhubarb. The outer husk is pulled away and the inner seed is eaten. Buckwheat is very nutritious, making it popular in many nations across the globe. It is easy to digest and provides complete protein. You can view the full buckwheat nutrition facts in the tab above.

For a delicious hot buckwheat breakfast cereal, bring 3 cups water and 1/4 teaspoon salt to a boil. Add 1 cup cereal, turn heat down, cover and cook for 10 minutes. Makes 2-1/2 cups. Serve with honey and brown sugar and milk. Add dried fruits and nuts to boost your breakfast or be adventurous and add a swirl of peanut butter and a handful of chocolate chips.

While primarily used as a hot cereal, our Organic Creamy Buckwheat can also be used in a wide variety of culinary applications! Give our recipe for Seeded Buckwheat Snack Cake a try — it's printed right on the package.

20 Reviews For "Organic Creamy Buckwheat Hot Cereal"

  1. Awesomely creamy and delicious

    by Minty on 09 Mon,2017


    Just tried this today for the very first time following the instruction at the back of the bag. After 5 mins of simmering covered, water ran out...so I added a bit of milk and continued a gentle simmer for an additional 5 mins...and then topped with a tablespoon of more milk and a tsp of local raw honey.....it was wonderful and creamy....just felt good to the body :-)

  2. Amazed at how delicious this is!

    by Heather McClees on 03 Fri,2017


    I have heard so many people say how good creamy buckwheat cereal is, but I always hesitated to try it because I actually don't like regular buckwheat no matter how many different ways I prepare it. However, this product by Bob's Red Mill blew me away. I cooked a serving of this with my regular serving of oatmeal (I love a big bowl of porridge), and was absolutely stunned how creamy and deliciously sweet it came out by the addition of this buckwheat. I have already bought more bags online because it's simply that good! I also noticed I digested it very well, and although I'm one to go for more higher fiber cereals, this one is worth keeping around. I gave mine a quick spin in the blender before cooking it to break it down a little more and it cooked up in just 3 minutes! Great product, BRM, this one is going to be a regular for me!

  3. Impossible to cook

    by Melissa on 01 Sat,2017


    I cannot seem to cook this properly. I used to buy another brand that cooked in the microwave for 2:30 minutes, no problem. My microwave is 1275 watts, so I've tried between 2 and 3, and it still boils over. I tried it on the stove (gas) on the lowest setting, and it boils over, making a huge mess. I have no idea what to do at this point. Other than that, it tastes fine. It is stronger than the other organic brand I purchased but it's still fine tasting.

  4. A great way to start the day.

    by Chris M on 09 Wed,2016


    This has become a staple in my pantry. I eat a half cup cereal in a cup and a half of water. I nuke it on high for 3 minutes and zest it up with whole milk, butter and cinnamon or nutmeg.
    A bowlful of this will last me until noon without the near lunch shakes I sometimes get. I also don't suffer from heartburn like I do with toast or wheat based cereal.
    The best part is that this tastes far better than oatmeal and has more texture than cream of wheat.

  5. A great way to start the day.

    by Chris M on 09 Wed,2016


    I eat a half cup of this cooked in a cup and a half of water and nuked on high for 3 minutes. A bowl of buckwheat hot cereal lasts me until noon. I don't get the shakes near lunch time and I don't get heartburn like I do from regular wheat cereals.
    The best part is that this tastes much better than oatmeal.

  6. Delicious!

    by Sky on 08 Tue,2016


    I cannot eat ANY grains or grain products. Buckwheat (a fruit) is the only hot cereal I can eat and I love it. I use 1/4 cup cereal, 1/2 milk, and 1/4 cup water. Cook til bubbly, cover, turn off and go away for a while (feed pets, meditate, etc..). When I come back I add fruit (raspberries are my favorite) and a splash of milk. With sweet fruit, I don't need to add sweetener. It is wonderful and keeps me full for hours (and regular).

  7. Very satisfying fill-you-up cereal

    by ktsr on 07 Sun,2014

    In order to increase the protein and fiber (& keep me full for hours), I have increased the portion size to 1/3 cup. I have also increased the water to 4 times the amount, rather than 3. So I use 1 1/3 c. of water, add a tiny pinch of salt and microwave for 3 min. Then I add 1 T. of 1% milk or Almond milk, 1/4 c. of broken up pecans, a LOT of cinnamon & stevia to sweeten it up. It comes out rat

  8. Good texture, easy to cook

    by FruGal on 01 Tue,2013

    I use this for a quick breakfast,lunch or snack, with fruit and soymilk. It's filling and has a high protein and fiber content. Also has a plesant mouth feel, like a rice or tapioca pudding. I sometimes make a batch and eat it chilled with fruit and/or nuts as a hot weather snack - kind of like ice cream without the sugar and fat:).

  9. So delicious!

    by cereal enthusia on 03 Thu,2012

    I LOVE this cereal! I make it in the microwave with the suggested amount of water. It comes out really thick, and then I mix in soymilk until it's more of a "cereal" consistency. I like to add a spoonful of maple syrup or brown sugar, or some dried fruit, and then it tastes like a treat! The buckwheat flavor is really nice, and I agree that the texture is a little like tapioca pudding. If you like

  10. I LOVE this cereal!

    by juddbug on 09 Wed,2011

    I started eating this cereal last month, and I LOVE it! I am on a gluten free, candida diet, and this cereal is perfect for me. It cooks well in the microwave. I add a few drops of stevia, and eat it with milk. At first the texture surprised me, but now I LOVE it! It reminds me of tapioca pudding.

  11. Blend with corn grits

    by Breakfast Boy on 07 Sat,2011

    As a straight cereal prepared with water, I thought this had a funny mouth feel. I blended with corn grits (about 2:1 buckwheat to grits) and found that combination to be quite excellent!

  12. So yummy!!

    by New to GF on 06 Mon,2011

    I love this cereal with currents. It is such a great GF option. Perfect because you know exactly whats in it. My husband who is not GF loves it just as much as I do! It's really good in the microwave too. Not a hassle to cook at all.

  13. Excellent breakfast or anytime meal!

    by Kathy on 02 Tue,2011

    I cook this on the stove, but instead of water, I use milk. I add 2 tsp vanilla and sprinkle liberally with nutmeg while cooking. yum! makes it taste like vanilla pudding!|I found Bob's Red Mill Creamy Buckwheat when I was on Weight Watchers. WW recommends eating healthy grains and the Creamy Buckwheat fell right into WW recommendations and my "points"!|So glad Bob's Red Mill is close to my hom

    We are so distraught that our favorite hot breakfast cereal is no longer gluten free. It was tasty, nutritious, quickly made in the microwave, and far preferred over any other gf hot cereal on the market. We sincerely hope that Bob's reconsiders this most unfortunate decision!
