Chocolate Buckwheat Granola

Introduction: Chocolate Buckwheat Granola

This is my favorite granola. I eat it for breakfast as a cereal substitute almost daily with a little milk and some fresh fruit. It's also a good snack to nibble on during the day. It really picks me up when I am low on energy and soothes my empty stomach. This recipe can also be found at gardengirlrecipes.com.
