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!

Vanilla Buckwheat Granola


  • 1 cup buckwheat
  • ½ cup quinoa
  • 1/3 cup flaxseeds
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • ¼ cup almond butter
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • Pinch of salt

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

In a large mixing bowl, add the buckwheat, quinoa, flaxseeds and walnuts

Step 2

Then add the almond butter, maple syrup, vanilla and salt. Mix till everything is combined

Step 3

Flatten onto a lined baking sheet and bake in pre-heated oven for 25-35 mins on 175 celsius

Step 4

Mid-way through the cooking, mix the granola so it gets fully roasted on all sides

Step 6

Enjoy over a yogurt bowl, or on top of your favourite smoothie bowl!
