  • 1Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 2 baking trays with parchment paper.
  • 2Combine the oats, buckwheat, almonds, pecans, macadamias and coconut flakes in a large mixing bowl and set aside.
  • 3Place 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.
  • 4Divide 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.
  • 5Serve with coconut yoghurt, non-dairy milk, berries or bananas, or eat on its own as a snack.

Variation: Not a fan of refined sugar? Skip it, or swap it out for more maple syrup.

Tip: For an extra chocolate crunch, add ⅓ cup cacao nibs when the granola has completely cooled.
