Buckwheat vs Buckwheat groats


So I've been consuming buckwheat daily for a while now, and thought 1 cup has ~580 calories as specified by the app, but if I add Buckwheat groats instead, it has only about 150 calories per cup. Could someone please explain to me why is there this big difference in calories between the two?
I now don't know if I was fooling myself thinking I'm reaching my calorie goals or not.
