The Buckwheat is a pseudo-grain,  is taken or considered as a grain but actually, it is not. And the poor thing is almost forgotten, it is a shame cause it is wonderful. If you do not find or do not like buckwheat, only replaced it with oats.

These seeds are filled with thousand of benefits, vitamin B, and proteins. When toasted they become super crispy and give a delicious texture to the granola. My children, call this granola their healthy Choco-Krispies.
