Goji Berry Granola


 When the weather gets hot, cold cereal starts sounding better and better as a way to start the day. This is a gluten free, high fiber granola that is just the right crunchy yet chewy texture. Since buckwheat actually is is not even in the same family as wheat this recipe is gluten free, vegetarian, low in sugar, and comparatively higher in fiber and protein. Cooking this with the maple, vanilla, and cinnamon made my place smell amazing, and it’s absolutely delicious and perfect in milk, on top of yogurt, or even on it’s own.
