Tropical Granola with Buckwheat Groats

A Tropical Groat Granola made with almonds, buckwheat groats, sunflower seeds, pineapple and coconut. Healthy, gluten-free and perfect on it's own or with yogurt and fresh fruit.

If I could send every reader a bag of buckwheat groats, I would. Recently turned on to this little gem, they have become my new favorite treat. I sprinkle them on smoothies, oatmeal, roasted vegetables, whatever I think needs a little more crunch.

I made this granola a few weeks ago for a thank-you gift and decided to see how adding groats would taste. Seriously, I am never going back. If I wasn’t nervous about eating the whole jar in a few days, I would make this granola weekly. For a real tropical treat, mix with coconut yogurt and fresh, diced pineapple. But, it’s just as good on it’s own. It’s also incredible sprinkled on pineapple-mango smoothies.
