Buckwheat Granola

Raw Buckwheat Granola (Raw, Gluten Free, Vegan)


I love granola but it is expensive and depending on the brand, can be unnecessarily high in fat and sugar. To increase the nutritional value and cut the fat and sugar, make this good for you granola. This granola is also gluten-free. High in fiber, manganese and magnesium, this granola does a body good.



1½ cups dry raw buckwheat (not toasted which is Kasha)

½ cup almonds, chopped

½ cup sunflower seeds

½ cup pumpkin seeds

¼ cup shredded coconut

1 tsp cinnamon

2 tbsp maple syrup

¼ cup dried cranberries (optional)



Soak the buckwheat for one whole day changing the water at least twice. After one day drain the buckwheat. Preheat oven 200 degrees. Place buckwheat on baking sheet and dry (bake) for 30 minutes. Take buckwheat out and combine with remaining ingredients and dry for an additional 20 minutes.

    Thanks for sharing your healthy and delicious “good for you buckwheat granola” with us on the Plant-based Potluck Party. I’ve avoided granola because commercial granola is high in fat, sugar and calories, so this is a welcome treat! I’m pinning and sharing.
