Easy buckwheat granola with quinoa, raw buckwheat, rolled oats, coconut and dates. It’s crunchy, sweet and delicious.
This health boosting granola includes a bunch of my favorite foods — oats, quinoa, buckwheat, sunflower seeds, coconut and Medjool dates.
With healthy fat from the coconut oil and natural sweetness from maple syrup and dates, this cereal is wholesome, filling and perfectly sweet. The quinoa, buckwheat and sunflower seeds give it quite the crunch. Who knew you can toast cooked quinoa and make it crunchy. Yes siree — works like a charm!
I love the cinnamon vanilla flavoring I used for this batch, but I think a chocolate version with a little cocoa powder and chocolate chips would be an indulgent (and insanely delicious) treat.
Serve it up with milk, just as you would regular cereal or pour milk over it and let it sit for a while — even overnight — like overnight oats.
It’s similar to granola nutritionally so it also works great as topping for yogurt or smoothies and I bet it would make a crunchy delicious topping for salads as well.
I couldn’t resist having a big bowl with banana slices and almond milk this morning — HAD to celebrate! 😉 Crunch crunch crunch.
