Salted Caramel Superfood Oat Free Granola

I was inspired to create a granola made with a buckinis base the other day and ended up making this delicious salted caramel granola. I find sometimes paleo granola can be too intense with just nuts and seeds and this is the perfect balance because the buckwheat balances out the fats, adds amazing crunch and absorbs the caramel flavour really well. The different mix of seeds gives you a great boost of not only good fats but great sources of calcium and magnesium  I have been snacking on this on its own but is also great on smoothie bowls , with coconut yoghurt & fruit. It is a great recipe to add to your meal prep for the week. Store in an air tight container to ensure it stays nice and crunchy.

1 tbsp chia seeds

1 tbsp flax seeds

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees celsius
  2. Place all dry ingredients in a large bowl except for the goji berries
  3. Place coconut oil, maple syrup and tahini in the microwave or on the stove and mix together until combined
  4. Use your hands to combine the wet mixture with the dry ingredients until fully coated and mixed through
  5. Line a large tray or two medium trays with baking paper and spread the granola out thinly on the tray (s) , the more spread out the better it will bake together and cluster otherwise it will be to thick
  6. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove and add goji berries and then place back in the oven for another 5 minutes. Check and remove if golden, otherwise leave a few more minutes

Store in an airtight container and enjoy!!
