Nutty Granola Recipe

Ingredients

  1. Dry:
  1. 1 c rolled oats
  2. 1/2 c raw buckwheat groats
  3. 1/4 c almonds, roughly chopped
  4. 2 tbsp whole flax seeds
  5. 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  1. Wet:
  1. 2 tbsp raw almond butter
  2. 2-3 tbsp agave syrup (sub maple syrup or honey if you prefer, and use more or less depending on how sweet you like your granola)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix all dry ingredients in a big bowl. Heat wet ingredients in a small sauce pan until boiling and immediately pour over dry ingredients. Mix with a spoon until dry mixture is completely coated. Pour mixture onto parchment paper and bake for 22 minutes. Take out of oven and let cool for another 15 minutes. Break up granola and keep stored in a glass jar. This makes just a little over three cups. Eat with milk, sprinkled over oatmeal, yogurt, fruit, or just straight out of the jar with a spoon!
