10 mins to prep
25 mins to bake
Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 2 baking trays with parchment paper.
Combine the oats, buckwheat, almonds, pecans, macadamias and coconut flakes in a large mixing bowl and set aside.
Place the remaining ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Whisk until the sugar dissolves and the ingredients are well combined. Pour over the nutty oats and toss through until the mixture is completely coated.
Divide the granola evenly between lined trays, and bake for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until toasty. Allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
Serve with coconut yoghurt, non-dairy milk, berries or bananas, or eat on its own as a snack.
