This is a recipe that my friends ask for, as i usually bring them a bag of it when i make a batch. It is super easy to make and if you keep it in a glass jar is preserved for a long time. This is the base recipe, you can make variations of it, adding oat flakes instead of quinoa puffs, make it with chocolate flavour, adding rose or camomile petals instead... It's gluten and sugar free, normally the muesli that we buy at the store contains many things that are not that healthy even if the packaging make it look so. The vanilla, cardamom and the petals gives the aroma to the grains but if you like it sweeter you can add some chopped dried fruits or drizzle your yogurt bowl with some agave syrup or similar. It's also perfect as a topping for smoothies and to make raw bars, combining the muesli with smashed dates.
To make the muesli, preheat the oven to 100°C. Place the buckwheat groats directly on an oven tray, sprinkle the grains with vanilla and cardamom powder, and roast for 30-35 minutes. Remove and let them cool down.
In a big container mix the roasted buckwheat with the remaining ingredients of the base recipe. Store in a clean glass jar.
Cut some fresh fruits (melon, banana, apple, pear...) to complete a nice healthy muesli bowl!
