  1. Preheat oven to 325ºF. In a large bowl, stir together oats, buckwheat groats, pecans, seeds, coconut, brown sugar and spices.
  2. Whisk together olive oil and maple syrup. Add to dry ingredients and stir until well-combined, making sure all dry ingredients are well-coated. Spread mixture in an even layer on a large parchment-lined baking sheet, and bake, rotating pan halfway through cooking, until granola is golden brown and fragrant, 20–30 minutes. Allow granola to cool on baking sheet, then sprinkle dried cherries on top, if using. Store in an airtight container.

Recipe Notes

Avoid stirring granola during or after baking. Leaving it undisturbed will create nice large clusters.
