Buckwheat Granola

M sent me 15 lbs of buckwheat so had to look up what to do with it. This is the first use. I used a combo of pecans, cashews, hazelnuts, whole and sliced almonds, and pumpkin seeds. Based on this recipe.
  • 2 c buckwheat groats
  • 1.5 c nuts and seeds
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 1 t ginger
  • 1 c shredded coconut
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 T coconut oil
  • 2 T maple syrup
  1. In a large bowl, combine buckwheat, nuts, spices and coconut.
  2. In a small bowl, mash the banana. Add the oil and syrup.
  3. Pour the banana mixture over the buckwheat mixture and stir to combine.
  4. Bake for 20-30 minutes at 350F, stirring halfway.
  5. Use for breakfast, as a yogurt topping, etc.
