Vanilla Buckwheat Granola

Oct 27, 2021 | Breakfast | 0 comments

I love making my own homemade granola and getting creative with the flavors & textures. Buckwheat is one of my favorite grains- it’s a wholegrain (more nutrition), fiber-rich and gluten-free.  Enjoy the smell of vanilla in your kitchen while this granola bakes!
