Glorious Granola

I made my first granola and it came out great! Next time I will definitely make a bigger batch. It really took a long time in the scheme of things.

First the buckwheat groats had to be soaked, then rinsed, again and again.  Then at last they sprouted. Look at those cute little tails!

Now for all the additives . . .

I added diced apple, raisins, maple syrup, coconut nectar, and a pinch of salt . . .

mixed it all together, and then added cinnamon and combined it well.

Then into the dehydrator it went.

And it stayed for about a day.

The tray wasn't as full when it came out as it was when it went in. I did a number of taste tests while it was dehydrating.  The smell was amazing and I just couldn't resist regular tastings!

This is a do-over recipe.  It tastes sooooo good!

It is a great snack, and I can't wait to have it with almond milk and fresh fruit.

Glorious granola. Can granola be glorious? Why not!

  1. Looks fabulous! I make my buckwheat granola with nuts and seeds, but may have to try the no nut version!
