My go- to granola, these flavours balance perfectly. Enjoy as a snack on it's own, mixed with yogurt, nut milk, or as a crunchy topping on your favourite bowl of oatmeal!



Serves 6-8


INGREDIENTS

WET

1/2 cup maple syrup

1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

2 tablespoons vanilla

1 teaspoon almond extract

3/4 teaspoon salt

1 vanilla bean, scraped


DRY

1 cup raw buckwheat groats

1 cup rolled oats

1 cup almonds, roughly chopped

1/2 cup quinoa

1/4 cup pumpkin seeds

1/4 cup chia seed

1/4 cup flax seed

PROCEDURE


​Preheat oven to 225 degrees F. In a medium bowl whisk together wet ingredients. In a separate bowl mix together all dry ingredients except cherries.


​Using a rubber spatula stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Transfer onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 1 hour-until golden brown, stirring every 15-20 minutes.
