Buckwheat + Puffed Quinoa Cacao Crunch

8 Nov 2017

 

I had a major craving for coco pops over the weekend but resisted the urge to buy a box as I knew it wasn't a good idea. Until I had a better one.

 

You could use all puffed quinoa but I added buckwheat groats for more crunch, or just use all buckwheat.

 

Either way, it's 🎵 just like a chocolate milkshake only relatively-guilt-free 🎵 

 

Not as catchy, but it's the truth.

Ingredients


Makes 2 cups

 

1.5 tbs coconut oil, melted

1 tbs honey/rice bran syrup (to your taste)

4 heaped tsp of raw cacao

1 cup buckwheat groats, washed and drained
1 cup puffed quinoa
pinch of Maldon sea salt flakes

Preheat oven to 175°C and line a tray with baking paper.

 

Mix the melted coconut oil, maple syrup and cacao in a bowl until well combined.

 

Stir in the buckwheat and quinoa puffs until well coated.

 

Spread the mix out in a single layer on your prepared tray and sprinkle lightly with salt flakes.

 

Bake for 7 minutes, remove from the oven and stir. Return to the oven and bake for another 7 minutes. Give it one last stir and bake for a final 3 minutes. 

 

Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before storing in an air-tight jar.
