- My Notes -

  • 0.25 cup Unrefined Coconut Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup Gluten-free Oats - rolled
  • 1 cup Mixed Nuts - or seeds (sunflower, pumpkin, pecans, or walnuts)
  • 0.25 cup Currants
  • 2 tablespoon Chia Seeds
  • 2.5 tablespoon Clover Honey - or maple syrup
  • 1 cup Buckwheat Flour - raw
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Meanwhile melt coconut oil with your choice of sweetener in a small saucepan until it starts to bubble. Mix in the vanilla
  • and remove from heat.
  • In a large bowl combine the rolled oats, buckwheat grouts, nuts and seeds, cinnamon, currants, and chia seeds.
  • Pour the coconut oil mixture over the dry ingredients and mix well. Spread the mixture on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until
  • toasted and lightly browned.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Gently crumble the cooled granola into pieces. Store in an airtight container.
We recommend trying spice substitutions to fit your preference. Substitute cinnamon for cardamom or ginger to change up the flavors, or make a mixture of all
combined! Also for a delicious savory flavor substitute the cinnamon for 2 teaspoons finely minced fresh rosemary.
Honey contains fructose. Northern latitude honey (clover, raspberry, alfalfa) contain a closer ratio of fructose to glucose than tropical honey (like the honey that Monash University tested and noted as a high fodmap food). Since northern latitude honey contains a closer ratio of fructose to glucose, this improves fructose absorption and we find that many people with fructose intolerance can enjoy a small amount of northern latitude honey. Please try this and see how you do (easy enough to test out in tea, like Rooibos tea). Guest Guru Patsy Catsos recommends to her patients and readers, to not include honey. If you were referred to GutRxGurus by Patsy, please omit honey from this recipe. We're happy to make a suitable substitution suggestion. Feel free to post a question in the forum!
