Abby calls this "Birdseed" Granola! "
She cannot have oats so we wait until we have little bits in the bottom of bags of all the grains and coconut we use and have saved up and we throw it all in, anything goes! Which means we get something a little different each time which keeps it interesting.
Millet(toasted or puffed)
fine shreds of coconut
(I keep adding until all total I have aprox. 5-6 cups of dried "stuff" and dried fruits)
I used a combo of 1/4 cup honey and maple syrup combined
1/2 cup brown sugar(domino's)
1/2 teaspoon salt,(pink himalayan)
1/4 cup grapeseed oil(Tj's many are using )
(roughly, I don't measure much for granola!)
Then heated in a saucepan till well combined and syrupy. Then I tossed my "birdseed" with the sugary mix.Pour onto parchment lined cookie sheet then baked at 225 for about 1 hour. I stirred about every 15 minutes. Allow to cool to room temperature. Pack it up airtight.
You can always use your favorite granola recipe and just exchange a mix of buckwheat and other "neat" substitutes to replace the oats.
