  • Category: Breakfast


  • 1 cup cashews, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup pecans, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup almonds, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup hazelnuts, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup buckwheat
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup flax seeds
  • 2 cups oats
  • 1 tbsp vanilla powder
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 bananas, mashed
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 160C(320F).
  2. In a big bowl, mix together all the nuts, buckwheat, oats, vanilla, and cinnamon until everything is well incorporated.
  3. In a separate bowl mix the mashed banana, maple syrup, and sea salt.
  4. Pour the liquid mixture over the dry ingredients and mix well so that everything is well coated.
  5. Spread on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  6. Bake for about 50-60 minutes, tossing with wooden spoons every 10 minutes or so. Keep checking it so it doesn't burn. If it's still wet after 60 minutes, lower the heat to 140C (284F) and keep it in the oven until crispy.
  7. Cool completely before transferring to any container.
