Clever Coco Pops

Your favourite child hood breakfasts is back with a snap crackle and pop! This is a really simple and easy recipe very similar to making granola and takes only a few minutes to whip up a bowl. If you like an added crunch like me, I used buckwheat grouts, they may not sound appealing but they’re delicious- highly recommend. But if you want to keep it simple it’s great just the way it is.

**buckwheat groats – available in all health food stores
**quinoa pops – health food stores – nourish, health matter, down to earth & other independent stores.
