I’m so pleased with this granola recipe as the kids LOVES IT! My boys are picky eaters and especially about what they have for breakfast. It gives me enormous peace of mind to send them out to the world on a healthy stomach!
I have to say I love it too but I let them have it as I can’t make it fast enough… There is soaking and dehydrating involved which makes the nutrients more available and a real power-house breakfast!
This Granola is both GLUTEN -FREE & NUT-FREE.
– 500 gram buckwheat
-1/2 cup sunflower seeds
-1/2 cup flaxseeds (I normally get pre-sprouted then you can add this at the end otherwise soak them together with buckwheat and seeds)
– 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
– 1 cup dried fruits (I normally go for mango, apricots and blueberries)
– 4 tablespoons maple syrup
– 1 and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
– 1 teaspoon of vanilla or 1 pod (if hard to get hold skip the vanilla)
– 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt
– 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric
