Oh, hello Cranberry Cashew Buckwheat Granola.

Drool.

I’m such a sucker for granola. It’s kind of out of control you guys. My husband recently bought me a bag of “Bear Naked” granola because he knows how much I love it…

GAME OVER. It was gone in like 1.5 days.

The problem with loving granola so much is that a) it’s not cheap and b) it’s not always that great for you. It’s often filled with all sorts of weird syrups, sugars, fillers and preservatives. *Hint to ya’ll: don’t listen to the claims of all “health-food” companies. However they try to spin things, “sunflower oil” and “organic cane sugar” are just not healthy for you.

Does this mean you have to say goodbye to your morning Greek yogurt and granola routine? Heck no. Not if we have something to do with it…

It is SO easy to make your own homemade granola…and if you make a big batch of it, it can last for days. (Unless you relate to me with the granola over-consumption problem…)

The trick to making a delicious granola is to use high-quality ingredients. We recently collaborated with a company called Anthony’s Goods to sample some of their high-quality products, and I must say, we’re loving them.

We tried their cacao nibs and buckwheat groats, and were impressed by both.

What are buckwheat groats anyway? Let me enlighten you with a few buckwheat trivia facts for the next time you’re on jeopardy and that question makes you a millionaire. Buckwheat groats are actually not related to “wheat” in any way. They’re a gluten-free fruit seed that’s related to rhubarb. They can be eaten raw, sprouted or cooked and used in place of rice or quinoa. Pretty versatile little buggers aren’t they?

Now, a little bit about Anthony’s Goods… They sell everything from almond flour and coconut oil to ground cumin and pea protein powder. Their products are well sourced, organic and non-GMO. And they have loads of gluten-free options for you gluten-intolerant friends! Their products come in bulk, so the prices are crazy affordable for what you’re getting. For example, our 5 lbs. bag of buckwheat groats was only $17.95! And the 54-oz. tub of organic extra-virgin coconut oil is $18. Such a steal.

They provide ingredients for amateur cooks to professional bakers and everyone in between. Their company is thriving, and we’re thrilled to be able to support them!

Anthony’s Goods, we’re a fan.

P.S. They did not pay us to say this 🙂 We really do love their products.

Cranberry Cashew Buckwheat Granola

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour, 10 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 20 minutes

Yield: About 3 cups granola

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
  2. Combine oats, buckwheat groats, melted coconut oil, honey and salt. Stir together and spread on an un-greased baking sheet.
  3. Bake for 1 hour. Gently fold in rest of ingredients and bake for another 10-15 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool. (Don't stir so it can harden into clumps as it cools).
  4. Once completely cool, gently remove from pan and store in an air-tight container.

Notes

*Cacao nibs are pure cocoa, so they taste very bitter. If you're not into that, just switch out with mini semi-sweet chocolate chips, or omit the chocolate all together. (Although we will judge you if you do that...)

      Yes! Homemade is the BOMB.com. But careful, it somehow disappears way too quickly… 😉

    I made this granola and it is SO GOOD!! I was surprised at how it’s not super sugary sweet like a lot of granola. I really liked that it was kind of savory. So yummy and super easy to make. Thanks for a great recipe!
