Raw Buckwheat Granola

Raw Buckwheat Granola

Even as a health food blogger, it’s hard to maintain a perfectly healthy diet during the holiday season. When you are spending quality time with friends and family, it’s sometimes nice to throw caution to the wind and grab a cookie or three. 😉

This time last year, I was getting married in two days! Lord knows I wasn’t eating cookies then. This year Lou and I are heading to Miami for our one year anniversary. 🙂 I’m just praying I can pull off a bathing suit and cover-up…

For these in-between Christmas and New Years days, I’m doing my best to simply eat like a normal person again. I’m not quite ready to dive into a strict cleanse (that’s coming in January… stay tuned!), but I do need to get back on track. 

I decided to make this Raw Buckwheat Granola so I can stop eating chips. Buckwheat is a fruit seed that has been linked to lowering cholesterol, controlling blood sugar and fighting inflammation. It’s also a great source of fiber

This Raw Buckwheat Granola is vegan, gluten free, super healthy and so easy to make! It requires no baking, and tastes delicious in a bowl of cold almond milk.

Hope everyone has a happy & healthy New Year!
