Chocolate granola with cinnamon and cayenne …. and buckwheat. Do not panic, it sounds weird, but if you like Mexican hot chocolate, you’ll love this one. You can start with or without cayenne, anyway it tastes delicious. The base is made granola with oats, coconut and buckwheat. The Buckwheat is a pseudo grain, is taken or considered as 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 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. Cinnamon and cayenne make it super special. It really is as if you were eating a piece of chocolate to make hot Mexican chocolate. And it is also full of super powers and health benefits. Cinnamon, for example, is antibacterial and has magnesium, calcium, and is a super good helper for digestion. Cayenne, within many good things it does for our body it also helps burn the extra fat we have (terrific right?). Yo la hago y la pongo en frascos en la alacena, si está bien tapada te puede durar hasta dos semanas. Sírvela con fruta y leche de almendra o coco o con algún yogurt que te guste.I make it and store it in jars in the pantry, if it is well covered, it would last up to two weeks. Serve with fruit and almond or coconut milk or some type of yogurt that you like. Here is the recipe and hope you like it.
