Buckwheat + Puffed Quinoa Cacao Crunch


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.
