Gluten Free Granola With Buckwheat

Weeks ago, I saw a recipe for homemade granola bars that use buckwheat groats. I was intrigued. If you follow a gluten-free diet, buckwheat is completely allowed! Buckwheat groats look like a grain, but it is actually a fruit seed – related to sorrel and rhubarb. Who knew? I found buckwheat groats in one of the bulk bins at Earth Fare and came home eager to put them in something yummy.

Today, the kids and decided to make homemade granola. If you eat gluten-free, you are probably used to finding most of the store-bought granolas contaminated by some type of wheat product. After you make this easy granola, I promise you that you will stop searching the aisles for a gluten-free option – this is better than anything I have ever tasted and it is really simple to make.
