I love making rawnola to sprinkle over fresh fruit or smoothie bowls, but oats can be problematic for those that are gluten intolerant or celiac. This is a delicious alternative that is high in protein, nutrient dense and will keep you full for longer. Buckwheat really is an underrated food. I avoid using the term superfood because I believe all plant foods are magical in their own right but this one is pretty special due to its high protein content, versatility - and the price, baby! This stuff is one of the cheapest gluten free grains available so I'm always finding new ways to integrate it into my diet.
- 3 cups buckwheat flakes
- 3 tablespoons brown rice syrup
- 1/2 cup raw hazelnut butter (can sub for almond, macadamia or cashew butter)
- 1 cup threaded coconut
