Hey, pretty people! How are you?.. Me, well I have been GRANOLA(ZING) (granola + amazing = granolazing) (I know this is not a word but, believe me, this is the only way to describe how delicious + nutritious this granola is!) - so as I was saying; I've been Granolazing my morning breakfasts + afternoon snacks with this buckwheat granola! And obviously I needed to share this recipe with YOU !!!!
ALMOND SALTY CARAMEL BUCKWHEAT GRANOLA
3/4 C. Raw Buckwheat Groats (no toasted buckwheat / kasha)
1 1/2 Oats
1 1/4 C. Almonds
3/4 C. Pecans
3 Tbsp. Sesame Seeds
3 Tbsp. Pumpkin Seeds
1 1/2 Coconut Flakes
1/4 tsp. Sea Salt / or to taste
Wet Ingredients / Sweetener:
8 Medjool Dates, chopped in small pieces (Soaked in hot water for 1 hour)
1/3 C. Creamed Honey / or to taste
1/4 C. Coconut Sugar
1/2 C. Coconut oil (melted)
Preheat oven at 150C/300F.
In a large bowl add the dry ingredients. Set aside.
In a separate bowl add all wet ingredients and mix well.
Pour wet ingredients mixture over dry ingredients and give it a good stir so everything gets covered with the dates + coconut oil mixture.
Place granola over a large baking tray / or two medium baking trays and spread evenly, bake for 15 minutes, remove from the oven stir and bake for another 10 minutes. It will be ready when its nice, crispy and golden brown. Let it cool and transfer the granola into a glass jar!
