Go, Goji Granola, Go.


I love buckwheat in granola.
When I threatened with more granola posts the other day, I meant it.  This batch was made to bring with me on the plane to DC over the weekend.  I stuffed it full with goji berries and both pumpkin and sunflower seeds. It helped, but I still got hungry on that long 5 hour flight.

The smile indicates the granola smells nice.
I followed this recipe from chocolate and zucchini, but used agave, cinnamon and the seeds mentioned above instead of nuts.  Some of the other passengers looked at me warily when I pulled out my big-assed yogurt container full of this stuff, but they were probably just concerned I might whip out a tuna fish sandwich.  Eating stinky food on airplanes is just criminal and mean.

    1. What do you usually do with it Mihl? I pretty much only use the groats in granola.

  3. I never thought to add buckwheat to granola, but it sounds perfect. Now I'm going to have to try this, I imagine the crunch is perfect! :-)

  5. Much to my vegan chagrin I am behind the times and have not yet sampled Goji berries.
    Stink food is not nice on planes, but this looks like a perfect travel companion.

  6. Like GiGi, even I am yet to try Goji berries but I'll take the smiling apple bowl's word for your granola's yumminess. It looks good too! :)

  8. I love Goji berries in granola! I totally think there should be a rule about eating stinky food in confined spaces. It's the worst when people eat bananas in the office (but I'm allergic to bananas so the smell makes me feel kind of sick).

  10. Oh my god (well - first - yr granola looks fantastic! I love goji berries and pumpkin seeds. Super superfoods ftw! but my first reaction was:) eating stinky foods in close quarters is one of my BIGGEST pet peeves, well, okay, stinky non-vegan food. A coworker always eats right next to me the worst food I can posibly imagine (street cart meat) and it makes me want to cry and ruins the flavor of the apple I am trying to snack on.
    One more reason to go vegan. Granola.
