Easy buckwheat granola with quinoa, buckwheat, oats, coconut and dates. Crunchy, sweet and delicious.
- 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
- ½ cup raw buckwheat groats
- 1 ½ cup cooked quinoa
- ½ cup sunflower seeds
- ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- ¼ cup coconut oil melted
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- ¼ teaspoon sea salt
- 5 pitted Medjool dates chopped into tiny bits (I used Natural Delights)
Preheat oven to 325°F.
In a large bowl combine oats, buckwheat, quinoa, sunflower seeds and coconut.
In a small bowl combine maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla, cinnamon and salt.
Pour maple syrup/oil mixture over the grain mixture and stir well, making sure all pieces are covered. Spread cereal mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or silpat.
Bake for 40-45 minutes. Color should be golden brown.
While cereal is baking, chop the dates.
Remove from oven and stir in chopped dates.
Let cereal cool before placing into a covered container for storage.
