Cacao and Coconut Buckwheat Granola. GF. V

I'm a granola girl from way back, I seriously eat it for dinner at least twice a week.

This recipe is great, I can't remember where I first found it, It's scribbled down on a piece of paper that iv'e had in my recipe collection (an old shoe box filled with food stained pieces of paper) for ever. I usually have it with fruit and yogurt, its also really good with home made almond milk, which then turns into chocolate milk, bonus.

  • 3 cups of oats (I use organic gluten free)
  • 1 cup of buckwheat
  • 1/3 cup walnuts
  • 1/3 cup almond
  • 1/3 cup hazelnut
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/3 cup maple
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder (I use Premium Dutch Cacao, it's the shit)

Pre heat your oven to 180 degrees C.

Combine the first 7 ingredients in a large bowl.

Place the remaining ingredients into a sauce pan, heat over a medium heat until smooth and the coconut sugar has melted.

Fold the chocolate mixture over the dry ingredients and pour in to a lined baking pan or tray.

Bake for 20 minutes, remove the pan from the oven, flip the mixture and bake for another 10 minutes. 

Allow to cool before pouring into airtight jars.
