  • ‘I love to start the day off with this buckwheat granola with yogurt. The main basis of this crunchy little number is buckwheat; a nutritious gluten free grain. It has a good source of protein as well as being rich in fibre and B vitamins.’ says Madeleine Shaw.

    Ingredients

    • 2 cups of oats
    • 1 cup buckwheat groats
    • 1 cup desiccated coconut
    • 1/2 cup coconut flakes
    • 3 tbsp of chia seeds (optional)
    • 1.5 tsps cinnamon
    • 1/2 tsp cardamon
    • 1 pinch of salt
    • 2 vanilla bean pods (opened and scraped)
    • 6 tbsp coconut oil

    Method

    • Preheat the oven to 175°C/350°F/Gas mark 4.

    • Place everything but the coconut oil in a bowl and stir well.

    • Place the coconut oil in a large pan on a low heat and melt. Take it off the heat and pour in all the dry ingredients, stir well so everything gets covered evenly in the coconut oil.

    • Place the mixture onto a baking tray and bake for 20 minutes, then remove the tray from the oven, give it a good stir, then cook for another 10 minutes.

    • Make sure it comes out nice and crispy.

    • Let it cool before you pop it into a jar to seal.

    • Enjoy it with coconut yogurt, fresh fruit, honey or seeds on top.
