Fill a bowl with this crunchy granola and top with almond milk or regular milk.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups raw rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup whole raw almonds (or any nuts you like)
  • 3/4 cup raw buckwheat
  • 3/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup canola oil (or coconut oil)
  • 1/4 cup honey (or a mixture of honey and maple syrup)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cup coconut (optional)
  • 1/2 cup currants, raisins, cranberries, or other dried fruit (optional)

Directions

  • Combine all ingredients except coconut and dried fruit in a big, oven-proof metal bowl.
  • Bake at 300°F for one hour in the metal bowl (or a 9x9 metal baking pan).
  • Stir every 30 minutes. Color should be golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and stir in coconut and currants, if desired (these will toast a little from being with the other ingredients).
  • Stir every half hour or so while cooling—the granola will clump together and some will stick to the bottom, which is ok.
  • Cool completely before putting into a container.
