When our family gave up cold cereals for breakfasts, I made several homemade cold cereals to keep in the pantry for those days when no one wanted to cook breakfast. The idea for the crunchy kasha came to me after reading about traditional kasha porridge made from buckwheat. I decided that if people made granola out of oats (essentially crunchy oatmeal), why couldn’t I make a crunchy version of kasha? My children loved it! This recipe is only lightly sweetened.
