For the kefir:

  • cups kefir plain

For the granola:

  • 1 1/2 cups oats
  • 1/2 cup raw buckwheat
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds raw
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • zest from one orange
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tsp orange emulsion or extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 pepitas
  • 1/4 cup coconut
  • orange segments for serving


  • Preheat the oven to 300° and line a sheet pan with parchment.
  • In a large bowl, combine the oats, buckwheat, sunflower seeds, zest, brown sugar and salt; set aside.  In a small dish microwave the coconut oil until melted and stir in the honey and orange emulsion.  Pour that on top of the oat mixture and stir to combine.
  • Spread oat mixture in a thin layer on parchment lined sheet.  Bake for 20 minutes.  Add the coconut and pepitas to the oat mixture and stir on the baking sheet.  Bake for an additional 15-20 minutes until oats are golden.
  • Remove from oven and allow the mixture to cool on the baking sheet.  It will firm up as it cools.
  • While the granola is in the oven, line a fine strainer with atleast 6 layers of cheesecloth.  Add the kefir and allow it to strain for up to an hour or until it reaches desired thickness.
  • Divide kefir amongst serve bowls or jars.  Top with cooled granola and orange segments.  Serve immediately.
