Gluten free Buckwheat and Cinnamon Granola

I love granola, seasonal fruit and coconut yoghurt for brekky, especially in the warmer weather. It's filling with plenty of protein, fibre and good fats and better yet, you can make it ahead of time for an on-the-go kind of day. It also makes a great afternoon snack, without causing a blood sugar spike. Experiment with whatever nuts and seeds you have on hand, I promise you can't really go wrong if you loosely follow it! Enjoy!
