Rating5/5 (from 3 ratings)5
3 cups buckwheat (soaked and/or sprouted)
1 cup pumpkin seeds (soaked)
1 cup walnuts (soaked)
1 cup sunflower seeds (soaked)
3/4 to 1 cup agave (to taste)
1/2 cup raisins
1/3 cup golden flax seed meal
1/3 cup coconut (shredded or flakes)
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
1 tablespoon vanilla powder
1 teaspoon salt or less (to taste)
1. Soak the buckwheat, seeds, and walnuts 6-8 hours or overnight (if you prefer sprouting buckwheat, plan ahead).
2. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl (I crumbled the walnuts into little pieces before adding to bowl). A large spoon works well to mix everything up, but clean hands make the experience a bit more sensual! if you want a less chunky, more blended appearance, you could throw all the ingredients except the buckwheat into a food processor for 20-30 seconds, then transfer into a bowl and stir in the buckwheat.
3. Spread on two teflex sheets.
4. Dehydrate at 115 F (or whatever you want) for 8-12 hours, or as long as it takes to get the crunchiness level you like.

I scoured the web and to my dismay, there was not a chocolate granola recipe to be found.
So I adapted this one from the ingredients list on a Kaia Foods bag of cacao bliss crunchies.
Be careful: this is deliciously dangerous even before it makes it into the dehydrator. My roommate and I had to cut ourselves off before we ate the whole batch straight from the bowl.
In the morning, I plan to have this with hazelnut milk, sliced bananas, and raspberries, and then I will need a cold shower.
Indulge on its own as a snack, or with seed or nut milk.
