Raw buckwheat granola recipe January 28 2015, 0 Comments

I just love this with a cup of tea morning tea time, or as a breakfast cereal alternative broken into pieces with your choice of milk and fresh fruit, or just a simple snack to keep us going in the Kultcha studio. This recipe is very much inspired by Lee Hakim a raw vegan chef from Livelee foods, whom I attended one of her ever inspiring workshops of raw vegan food check out her Facebook page Livelee foods.

2 1/2 cups raw activated buckwheat groats

1/12 cups of dates soaked for 15mins

3/4 cup currants or raisins

1/2 cup coconut hredded

1/4 cup sun flour seeds soaked for 4 hours

1/4 cup pumpkin seeds soaked for 4 hours

1/4 cup flax seeds soaked for 8-12 hours in 1/2 cup water (do not drain or rinse)

1tsp cinnamon

I have added organic blueberries, cranberries and bananas from our backyard garden. previously i have used fresh cherries when they were right in season Yum!

Blend up the dates with the water

put all ingredients into a large bowl, mix well by hand.

spread onto the dehydrator lined with baking paper 

Dehydrate for 8 hours, then remove the baking paper

Dehydrate for further 12 hours or until the desired texture/crunch. 

 

Simple!
