Buckwheat granola

The seed of oats contains more fat than that of other cereal plants (7% instead of 2%), but that’s also the only “negative” thing. Oats contains all the essential amino acids and a high concentration of auxins (antioxidants). It also has a low glycemic index and above, it contains beta-glucans (soluble dietary fiber), which scientifically proven, have a cholesterol-lowering effect. Plus they are naturally slightly sweet.
Buckwheat on the other hand, is the triangular seed of a plant that is related to rhubarb and sorrel. Although technically it is a pseudo grain, buckwheat is widely classified and used as a grain. Buckwheat contains just as oats all the essential amino acids, it contains the antioxidant rutin and are glutenfree.
