This seedy buckwheat granola is a mix between traditional granola and a seed mix. It uses no oats or nuts, making it naturally gluten free. Buckwheat is actually a type of fruit seed, related to the rhubarb and sorrel family.  The buckwheat also adds crunch and a mild nutty flavor to the granola.


It’s not an overly sweet granola, but it has a lot of crunch and a delicious espresso taste! It tastes great alone as a snack, over yogurt or in a bowl of milk and fruit. The recipe is quite small, so feel free to double it as you like.  It’s easy to make but requires a bit of planning the night before, so make sure you pre-plan this one to presoak the seeds.
