Non-GMO Recipe: Chocolate-Glazed Buckwheat Granola

Oats have a lot of appeal—whether you want a quick, hot breakfast, chewy cookies or textured bread. But if you’re whipping up a batch of homemade granola, leave this trusty “go-to” grain in the pantry. Buckwheat, a seed that’s often mistaken for a grain, takes the place of traditional oats in this clever snack, adding nutty flavor and a ton of extra-fun crunch. Topped with a simple glaze made from raw honey and cacao powder–you’ll never settle for ordinary granola again!
