Grainola

You all know that I love granola. I make my own a lot and have even branched out making some with quinoa. I also love grains especially when I can chew and crunch my way through a meal.

Then I wondered, “Could I make granola with multiple grains?”

The answer friends is, yes, yes I can.  Because I tried it and it worked!  Three grains go into this dish that I’m calling Grainola!

Andrea’s Grainola

  • 1C Buckwheat Groats
  • 1C Cooked Wheatberries
  • 1C Cooked Quinoa
  • 3TBSP Maple Syrup
  • 3TBSP Light Olive Oil
  • 1tsp Cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350. On a baking sheet, line it with foil and spray with some nonstick spray or olive oil. You can also use parchment paper if you have that.  In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine all ingredients until they are coated.  Spread on a the baking sheet and bake for about 20 to 30 minutes stirring about every 10 minutes.  Keep an eye on them so that they don’t burn.

Remove from oven once they are browned and slightly crisp.  Allow to cool, store in glass container in your fridge.

Crunchy, sweet, and chewy this makes the perfect granola!  Feel free to add some crushed nuts and seeds after the gainola has cooled down.

It is pretty intense so be aware that you will be crunching and chewing your way through a bowl of it.

It’s great with yogurt or with a splash of milk (your choice) on top. I’m not sure if I can actually make granola now without some kind of grain to go with it!

Have fun guys, and remember, always play with your food! Enjoy!
