Since originally posting this recipe, I have made an updated version using Oat Flour!

An Easy and Healthy Single Serve Tiramisu – soft and fluffy coffee-soaked buckwheat flour sponge, creamy layers of protein cream and a rich dusting of cocoa powder. This tiramisu is made within 15 minutes and is perfect for breakfast!

It is important to note that this is definitely NOT a traditional tiramisu! I’m afraid you won’t find any ladyfingers or mascarpone in this single-serve dessert, but I promise it is still absolutely delicious!

One of my favourite things is having dessert for breakfast – it just truly makes me happy! Therefore, I like recreating delicious desserts but making them “acceptable” for breakfast. This tiramisu is well-balanced, nutritious and healthy, with protein from the buckwheat flour and protein powder (optional) and healthy fats from the coconut yoghurt and cocoa powder! And not to mention the coffee in the sponge for an energy boost in the morning!

I hope you enjoy this as much as I do!

What you’ll need to make a Single Serve Tiramisu

This vegan tiramisu requires minimal ingredients and time, making it perfect to whip up in the morning!

Buckwheat Flour – I personally love the taste and it has a really fluffy texture when baked. I highly recommend buying some, if you don’t already have some. (you could try these buckwheat pancakes too – YUM!)

You could try this Healthy Tiramisu with oat flour.

Chia Seeds – For added structure and healthy fats, I add chia seeds. You can use ground flax seeds instead.

Agave – Maple syrup or any other liquid sweetener should work well!

Milk – I use soya milk, but whatever you prefer will work.

Black Coffee – Of course, you will also need some coffee! You can use fancy coffee from a machine or instant coffee! If you are having this as a dessert, I recommend using decaf!

Yoghurt – For the creamy layers, I combine coconut yoghurt and vanilla protein powder until nice and smooth. You could omit the protein powder if you want and just use coconut yoghurt. You could also replace coconut yoghurt with soy yoghurt.

Cocoa Powder – You could use raw cacao powder or even hot chocolate powder.

All of the recipes I create are tried and tested a few times until it has been perfected. My goal is to develop recipes that are simple to make and easy to follow so that anyone can make them – even if you’ve never baked before!

One very important thing that will ensure that you get the best results is to measure your ingredients by weight! I recommend purchasing a kitchen scale, they are very affordable and it will honestly change your baking game for good! Not all measuring cups are made equally – for example, a cup of flour to me weighs 120g, but for you, it may be anywhere between 100g and 200g – that’s a BIG difference!

If you don’t have a kitchen scale yet, you can use this Ingredient Weight Chart as a guideline to convert the ingredients to help you!

Now – dust your apron off and get baking! X

  1. Hello! I’ve tried the recipe before and it’s wonderful, but one question, can you substitute chia seeds for flax egg? right now I have flaxseed meal and not chia
