Here’s a gluten and added sugar-free granola you can enjoy for breakfast or as a snack, that can be simply sweetened by serving with some fresh fruit. Better still, brighten up a dessert of yoghurt and fresh fruit by sprinkling some over for a bit of crunch.

Make sure you buy raw buckwheat groats as opposed to toasted. The latter is hard as a rock unless it’s been soaked. So remember, raw! And use these measurements as a guide – feel free to mix it up according to your taste.

 


Ingredients

  • 500g - raw buckwheat groats
  • 200g - unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/3cup - pumpkin seeds
  • 2tsp - ground cinnamon
  • 1tbsp - coconut oil
  • 1tsp - vanilla extract
  • 1tbsp - tahini (or nut butter)

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees Celcius.
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  3. Melt and combine the coconut oil with vanilla and tahini in a saucepan.
  4. Pour the liquid mixture over the dry ingredients, making sure the dry ingredients are evenly coated.
  5. Spread mixture out in an even layer on a baking tray (we lined ours with non-stick baking paper). Roast for 15-20 minutes, remove from oven to stir.
  6. Return to the oven for an additional 10-15 minutes, until the mixture starts to turn brown and begins to feel dry.
  7. Remove from the over and allow to cool at room temperature. Store in an airtight container for up to one month.
