The Best-Ever Buckwheat Granola

I have been dying to share this recipe with you for over a year. I didn't want to share it without a beautiful photo to accompany it, so I've been sitting on my hands waiting patiently. This granola recipe has become our all-time favorite at my house. It's definitely kicked up my granola game from ho-hum to home-run.

This granola has even become a go-to gift of mine for those people that continually stump me. I simply bake a big batch, then pack the granola into mason jars and tie a pretty ribbon around the lid. Easy as that, I had a thoughtful, homemade gift.

Not only is this recipe easy to prepare, it's absolutely wonderful with crunchy, sweet granola clusters, chewy fruit, nuts, and coconut. The buckwheat really brings something special to this granola. It's an unusual ingredient, has a wonderfully earthy flavor, and packs a nutritional punch. This granola makes a great breakfast with milk or yogurt, a delicious snack, and a stellar dessert when served over some vanilla ice cream. Honestly, we can't get enough of it at our house. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Buckwheat Granola

Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time:  30-35 minutes | Yield: 15-20 servings

Step 1

Preheat oven to 300°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 2

In a large bowl combine rolled oats, buckwheat groats, nuts, and seeds.

Step 3

In a small saucepan combine honey, maple syrup, coconut oil, cinnamon, and salt. Bring to a boil and hold at a steady boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add vanilla and almond extract.

Step 4

Pour syrup mixture over the oat mixture and mix well to evenly coat. Spread the granola on the prepared baking sheet in an even layer.

Step 5

Bake granola until browned and crispy, about 30-35 minutes, stirring thoroughly every 10 minutes.

Step 6

Let cool thoroughly before breaking into clumps and adding dried cranberries.

    I am curious on step 5- the granola is spread out on a baking sheet and is cooking for 30-35 minutes- then the directions say stir every 10 minutes. What am I missing?

      We recommend stirring regularly during the 30-35 minutes to keep from burning.

    Hi! Made this recipe today. It came out brown and crispy and delicious, but also very sticky. I was wondering if that's how it comes out when you make it, or have I done something wrong? I did follow the directions exactly. If you have any hints for me I'd be glad to hear! Thanks!

      It sounds like something might not have been quite right. It's sticky, but it shouldn't be extremely sticky.

      We are so glad you loved it. We do not do nutritional analysis on our recipes. We recommend using an online database for this if you are concerned about nutrition.

    Love this recipe make it frequently. Sometimes it comes out dryer and crispier that others. Find keeping the pan in the oven after I've turned it off creates the crispy level I prefer. I usually need to order groats online but have never unable to get what I need.

    Sounds wonderful! Do the groats need to be soaked at all before or Di I just add them to the recipe as is? Thanks

      Hi Laura - No need to soak the groats, just add them in straight from the bag. Enjoy!
