I am always on the hunt for a delicious crunchy topping for my yoghurt, smoothie bowls or nice creams. So I was browsing through the isles of my local organic food store and whole foods and was shocked by the prices for vegan, wheat-free and refined sugar free granolas and mueslis. Yes, I don’t always have the time to create my own granola so I want to invest in some delicious pre made ones, but that much money I wasn’t ready to spend when I know I could easily make this on my own at home for far less. And on top of that I know exactly how much of what I’m putting into the recipe, because usually even if it’s promoted as being healthy, they contain a lot of oil.

So I created a quick and very easy recipe for Chocolate Coconut Buckwheatnola:

Chocolate Coconut Buckwheatnola
Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: Vegan
Author: Dreamy Leaf
  • 2-3 cups raw and unroasted Buckwheat I presoaked it for about 6-8 hours for even better digestion
  • 2 TBSP raw cacao powder
  • 1 TSP maca powder
  • a small handful of coconut shavings
  • a pinch of himalayan salt and black pepper
  • 1 TBSP lucuma powder
  • 1 TSP coconut oil
  • a few pecan nuts and hazelnuts
  • a few dates
  • vanilla essence sugar and alcohol free
  1. Preheat the oven to 120 °C (or 250F)
  2. Mix all your ingredients except the dates together into a bowl
  3. Pour the dates into a blender, mix with water and a few drops of vanilla essence
  4. Add the date paste into the other ingredients, mix around and pour onto a backing tray
  5. Leave in the oven for roughly 1,5 hours, it depends, just keep checking on it and turning it around

It’s also very good on it’s own. I usually snack on it while watching a TV series after dinner or when I get a bit peckish in between the long working hours. Hope you’ll enjoy it and don’t forget to tag me in your creations if you’ll try it on instagram @shanyaraleonie

  1. Could I make this in a dehydrator instead of an oven? It’s summer and I don’t really want the oven on for so long.
