CRUNCHY BUCKWHEAT MUESLI
Serves:6
1 cup (200 g) buckwheat (see Glossary)
1⁄2 cup (80 g) raw almonds, chopped
3 tablespoons sunflower seeds
3 tablespoons pumpkin seeds
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
2 tablespoons extra virgin
coconut oil, melted
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1⁄2 teaspoon ground ginger
1⁄4 teaspoon ground turmeric (see Glossary)
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup (optional)
milk of your choice, to serve
sliced banana and blueberries, to serve

This delicious crunchy muesli uses very little sweetener and
is a nutrient-dense alternative to many packaged breakfast
options on the shelves. The combination of seeds gives it a
wonderful mineral boost. I find many people love it served with
banana and blueberries, but you can use any fruit you like. p.88

Place the buckwheat, almonds and seeds in a medium bowl,
cover with cold water and leave to soak overnight. The next
morning, rinse and drain well.

Preheat the oven to 150°C (300°F) and line a baking tray with
baking paper.
Tip the soaked buckwheat mixture into a bowl, add the coconut
oil, spices and syrup, if using, and mix well to coat.

Spread the buckwheat mixture over the prepared tray. Bake
for 50 minutes or until lightly golden and dry. Set aside to cool
completely.

Serve with your choice of milk, topped with sliced banana
and blueberries.
