Servings 4 cups


  • 1 cup buckwheat flakes
  • 1 cup gluten free oats
  • 1 cup pecans roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 cup apple sauce unsweetened

You will also need

  • baking paper / non stick baking spray
  • 1 baking sheet


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with baking paper or spray your tray with a non-stick spray.
  • Combine buckwheat flakes, oats, pecans and spices in a medium mixing bowl. Add in the apple sauce and rice syrup and stir until everything is combined well.
  • Spread the mixture evenly on your baking tray. You want it to be well spread out so it cooks evenly.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, stirring it every 10 minutes to allow for even baking. When it’s ready it will be golden brown and feel dry to touch.
  • Allow to cool and add in chopped dates.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to two weeks.

To get a clumpy granola, don’t mix it too much during baking. Rather shake the pan to get an even bake.
