Additional Cacao Nibs for Sprinkling


    • To prepare the buckwheat oats for the granola, soak overnight covered in cold water with the apple cider mixed in. 
    • To make the overnight oats, whisk the milks, coconut water, peanut butter and syrup together until combined. Stir in the oats.
    • Cover with cling film and place in the fridge overnight. 
    • Drain and rinse the buckwheat thoroughly the next morning. 
    • Pre-heat the to 150 degrees C and line two baking strays with baking paper.
    • Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl making sure all ingredients are well coated in the coconut oil and syrup. 
    • Lay the mixture out evenly over the two trays and bake in the oven for 50 to 60 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
    • Remove the granola from the oven and allow to cool.
    • To serve, spoon a serving of the peanut butter oats in to a jar or bowl, add granola, fresh fruit (I use blueberries) and another sprinkling of the cacao nibs. 


    If you don't want to make the granola you could add store-bought and add a handful of cacao nibs.
    The buckwheat granola recipe makes enough for 6-8 serves.
