Ingredients (Serves Three)
Peanut Butter Steel-Cut Oats
1 cup (250ml) steel-cut oats
1 cup (250ml) coconut milk
1/2 cup (125ml) coconut water
1/2 cup (125ml) soy or almond milk
1 tablespoon (20ml) + 1 teaspoon (5ml) peanut butter
1 tablespoon (20ml) agave or maple syrup
1 cup (250ml) raw buckwheat groats
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup (125ml) chopped raw almonds
1/2 cup (125ml) pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup (125ml) sunflower seeds
1/4 cup (60ml) chia seeds
1/4 (60ml) cup cacao nibs
1/4 (1.25ml) teaspoon sea salt
1/2 (2.5ml) teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup (125ml) agave or maple syrup (could also use honey, or rice malt syrup)
2 tablespoons (40ml) melted coconut oil
Additional Cacao Nibs for Sprinkling
1. Prep some ingredients before you settle in to watch The Bachelor – Soak buckwheat oats overnight covered in cold water and apple cider.
2. To make the overnight oats, throw the milks, coconut water, peanut butter and syrup together until combined. Stir in the oats, cover and pop in fridge – that’s all!
3. Next morning, drain and rinse the buckwheat thoroughly
4. Preheat oven to 150° Celsius and line two baking trays with baking paper.
5. Combine all buckwheat granola ingredients in a large mixing bowl, making sure everything gets covered in the coconut oil and syrup.
6. Lay the mixture out evenly over the two trays and bake in the oven for 50 to 60 minutes while you get yourself ready for the day. Stir occasionally to get lovely, crunchy brown goodness all over.
8. Remove the granola from the oven and allow to cool.
9. To serve, spoon a serving of the peanut butter oats in to a jar or bowl, add granola, fresh fruit and another sprinkling of the cacao nibs.
If you’re tight on time and don’t fancy making the granola yourself, use store-bought granola and add a handful of cacao nibs instead.
