Gluten-Free Oat-Free Speedy Granola! Faster than a speeding bullet. More budget-friendly than your local .99 cent shop! Crunchy as a breast-feeding young mum eating hemp seeds out of a paper sack! ...or if you want to be short and sweet, Crispy Gluten-Free Buckwheat Granola. These days, I have a longing to meander in kitchen at slow speeds, baking and chatting and cooking slow. But as a young professional in Beantown, I have a need for slow food made or available fast. Although it's foundational to self-care and good digestion to eat in peace, and slowly, that doesn't mean every meal I swallow needs to take as long to cook as it does to eat.

  • Ingredients: 3/4 - 1 cup dry buckwheat groats (I use Bob's Red Mill)
    2 1/2 cups water

    PLUS
    3 cups water
    salt to taste
  • Instructions: 1) Soak groats overnight. Drain, and cover with water again, soaking all day and overnight.

    2) Drain, add to a small saucepan, cover with 3 cups water (or just enough to cover 1"-2").

    3) Bring to a boil, then simmer until water is absorbed fully.

    4) Remove from heat and allow to cool. Once cool, spread evenly on a parchment lined baking sheet or in a glass baking dish, and bake at 400 F for 20-35 mins, or until granola is crisped and groats are lightly golden around the edges.

    NOTE: Stir once during baking, turning groats to make sure they crisp evenly.

    5) Cool, and store in airtight container or ziploc sack.

    Voila.
