Instant Pot Buckwheat Groats Recipe (Gluten Free, Vegan)

This Instant Pot buckwheat groats recipe is a fantastic and simple way to pressure cook groats to add to breakfast bowls, oatmeal, or for baking! Just cook groats and water together for a few minutes, quick release, and serve for breakfast.

I love adding groats to breakfast bowls with fruit and almond milk, mixed with cinnamon and sugar, or even used in savory recipes. A simple, wholesome, whole grain breakfast you’ll love!

I love the nutty, hearty, and tasty flavor of buckwheat, and I love how easy it is to cook in your Instant Pot. You only need to start with whole buckwheat groats (the fiber-filled unhulled part of the buckwheat) and water.

I had never tried groats before, but my good friends at Cape Breton Northern Tip Charters (who we took an unbelievably cruise with last summer!) challenged me to try groats. And the verdict? We loved them, and they couldn’t be simpler to cook.

Instant Pot Breakfast Ideas for the Easy Meal Prep!

For all my recipes I use the 8-Quart Instant Pot Ultra, its larger than the standard models (which are only 6 quart) so I have extra room to meal prep and batch cook more meals for the week. The Ultra model also has some great extra settings like cake baking and yogurt making which are really neat.

 I love that everything can cook in one pot, which makes for way less dishes and hands-off cooking. The Instant Pot is hands-down my favorite kitchen appliance, and actually makes my life so much easier.

How Do I Make Buckwheat Groats in the Instant Pot?

  1. To the inner pot of the Instant Pot, add the buckwheat groats and water. Stir well to combine.
  2. Seal the lid, and set the Instant pot to Pressure Cook/Manual mode. Cook for 8 minutes. Once finished, allow the groats to naturally release for 5 minutes, then release the remainder of the pressure manually.
  3. Fluff groats with a fork. Stir in optional sides: almond milk, fruit, nuts, cinnamon, or butter, and enjoy!

Make Groats Gluten Free for a Better Version

This gluten free groats recipe is a simple meal to make without the wheat – as buckwheat is naturally gluten free.

Gluten free cooking does NOT have to be bland, boring, or flavorless… It’s quite the opposite when done right. By building meals around gluten free pantry staples and swapping in a few wheat-less ingredients you can make better meals for you and your family.
