Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw buckwheat groats**
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 2 tbsp whole flaxseeds
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 2/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup salted almond butter
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of sea salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, combine groats, cashews, almond, flaxseeds, chia seeds and coconut flakes.
  • In a small saucepan, combine maple syrup, coconut oil, almond butter and vanilla extract. Heat over medium heat until melted, stirring frequently.
  • Pour liquid mixture into mixing bowl and toss well. Sprinkle with sea salt.
  • Spread mixture evenly onto baking sheet, lightly pressing down with a spatula to even out. Bake for 20 minutes, stir, and then bake for another 18-20 minutes, until toasted and golden brown.
  • Allow the buckwheat to cool completely before breaking it into clusters. It needs to cool for at least an hour, but I left mine for ~2 hrs before touching it. Store in an air-tight tupperware container at room temperature for up to 1 week.

Notes

Raw buckwheat groats are usually found in the bulk-bin sections of health food stores at a lower cost than buying packaged buckwheat
