While the buckwheat is cooking, chop your apples and get the remaining ingredients ready. When the buckwheat is cooked, simply add the almond milk, apples, raisins, cinnamon, vanilla, maple syrup, & sea salt. Give it a good stir, recover, and turn heat up to medium. Allow to cook on medium until the apples soften to your liking (this took a little over 10 minutes for me).
If you have the time, you can always soak the buckwheat groats in 3-4 cups of water overnight. This will just help make the buckwheat easier to digest.
