When I look at this bowl I think of a morning spent watching New Girl and nomming on this. I mean Nick says “It’s perfectly fine to watch TV all day.” So yeah, I’m going to take him up on that, but not before I make this beautiful breakfast bowl. Thanks to our friend Danielle of @cacaoforcoconuts_ for the recipe!

If a fall recipe doesn’t have pumpkin and maple, is it really a fall recipe? I mean c’mon now that pumpkin pie spice is to die for! Combine that with the superfood nutritional power of buckwheat and voila! Bliss in a bowl.

Pumpkin Maple Buckwheat with Protein Fluff

Pumpkin Maple Buckwheat with Protein Fluff

Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 7 minutes

Pumpkin and maple together = power duo. And add the protein fluff and you have yourself fuel to keep you going all day long!


  • 1/2 cup original lil bucks
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp pumpkin purée
  • 1 tsp maple butter (or syrup or date syrup)
  • Generous amount of pumpkin pie spice
  • Protein fluff
  • 1 scoop protein powder (I used vanilla Sprout Living)
  • 2 Tbsp + 1 tsp water


    1. In a small pot, bring 1/2 cup lil bucks and 3/4 cup water to a boil.
    2. Make protein fluff by combining water and protein powder!
    3. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 4-5 minutes. The buckwheat will absorb a lot of the liquid.
    4. Stir in the pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice and sweeter of choice (I used maple butter, maple syrup would be great too).
    5. Transfer to a bowl and top. Pictured with protein fluff and pecan butter!


Makes 1 serving.
