If there’s one thing better than breakfast, it’s snacking, and this recipe falls into both categories. Can life get any better than that?
I’ve made this granola three times in the past week and a half, because it is just that good. Whether you use sprouted buckwheat or just raw buckwheat groats, it will turn out perfect either way.
If using sprouted buckwheat that is still wet when added to the recipe, the cook time will vary slightly as more moisture will need to be drawn out.
With a number of high iron foods (oats, buckwheat, peanut butter) in this recipe, it’s a great way to start the day and get your energy levels up. If you’re not a fan of peanut butter, try swapping it out for almond butter or sunflower seed butter.
This recipe can be enjoyed on its own, or with milk or yogurt, topped with fresh fruit. It would even be delicious on ice cream. Use your imagination, don’t limit yourself when it comes to how to eat granola.
