Almondy Buckwheat Granola

Hi there everyone! If you have been following my blog for a while you must have realized that I do LOVE granola – and especially home-made one! It tastes just so much fresher and really crunchy than store-bought. But of course, sometimes I also buy them at the supermarket, when I am just tired of what I make myself. The key is to vary the flavor combination and always try new things. This recipe was created as an experiment and it turned out really yummy, so that’s why I want to share it with you.

What I found really made this granola recipe so delicious was the almond extract I added – soooo good! And I also added more buckwheat groats than usually which made it very crunchy as well, as buckwheat gets super crunchy once baked in the oven.

This super crunchy, almondy granola contains following Superfoods:

  • Oats

  • Flax seeds

I’ll be also bringing this recipe to this week’s Fiesta Friday. Another happy round of virtual blogger partying and recipe sharing, lots of fun! Thanks also to this week’s co-host Selma and Elaine for helping out Angie to make everyone feel welcome at the party! 😉

Have a wonderful weekend all!

    I love making granola, too, Sylvia! There are so many variations which makes it interesting and fun. This recipe sounds and looks so good! I love that it is crunchy and has an almondy flavor. Thanks for sharing this!

    I seldom find granola recipes using buckwheat, but I think it is the best. I have never tried the almond extract. Will have to give that a try.

    I love oats and granola Sylvia. This looks delish. Any suggestions for what I can use in Brazil to substitute the buckwheat groats?
    Hope you’re doing well.
    :-)

    This is just the perfect time of year for granola, I think and the addition of the almond essence really kicks it up a notch. And quite short list of ingredients too which is always nice!! Gorgeous photos too. Thank you for bringing this to the party – Happy Fiesta Friday!!
