I feel like buckwheat doesn’t get enough attention. Contrary to how it sounds, buckwheat isn’t a grain but a seed! It’s loaded with vitamins and minerals, is high in protein and promotes a healthy gut. Though I love oats, its nice to change things up a bit. This delicious gra”NO”la’s secret ingredient is Ahara Rasa’s Chai Spiced Ghee. This ghee is spiked with delicious warming spices that gives an intoxicating flavor and depth. You can sweeten this to your liking or even leave it unsweetened if that is your thing. Feel free to get creative and play with different seeds, nuts and dried fruit. In the meantime I will be over hear putting this on everything.
1 cup buckwheat groats
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/4 cup Chai Spiced Ahara Rasa Ghee (use code BODYBLISS)
2 to 3 T honey or maple syrup
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla
a generous pinch of salt
Preheat over to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, combine seeds and coconut. In a medium bowl combine ghee (if solid, melt in a pan over low heat), sweetener, vanilla, cinnamon and salt. Whisk until combined. Pour the wet mixture over the dry and stir until combined. Pour mixture onto a cookie sheet and place in the oven. Stir every 10 minutes until golden brown (it will depend on your oven but anywhere from 20-30 minutes). Let cool and store in an airtight container.
This combination can be eaten straight, with nut milk, on top of granola, smoothies or as a cookie topping.
