I modified this recipe from the wonderful raw food book, “Raw Food, Real World”, by Mathew Kenney and Sarma Melngailis. I cut down on the sweetener and salt, and did not add the stevia recommended in the recipe. This cereal is amazing with Vanilla Brazil Nut milk. I will try to post a picture of these soon!

Recipe Directions

Rinse buckwheat well after soaking and allow to drain.

In a food processor, combine all ingredients and pulse until the consistency of liquidy oatmeal – do not thoroughly puree.

Spread onto two or more lined dehydrator trays about 1/8 inch thick or so.

Dehydrate at 115°F for 4 to 8 hours until the top is dry to the touch and you can peel the teflex easily.

Remove from dehydrator and flip the whole thing over by placing a screened tray over the buckwheaties. Peel away teflex and place back into the dehydrator for 8 or more hours, until it is competely dry and crunchy.

Break into pieces and store in glass airtight containers or keep in fridge.

*This is supposed to stay good for weeks but mine never last that long! Feel free to explore using different spices, such as cinnamon or nutmeg!

Yum, I've tried their vanilla one before. Thanks for posting I needed the basic ratios. I almost made this one but I had some pulp to use up so I'm experimenting with 1 1/2c buckwheat, 1/2c pulp of apple carrot and beet with a little ginger. 2tbsp cinnamon instead of cacoa and 1/4c agave with 1/4c acacia honey, I kept the tbsp vanilla and used 2 pinches of salt. I'll let you know how it turns out but so far it smells divine!

Response to writeeternity. They do but it is labeled cacao powder and usually in a raw food section with kale chips, raw granola bars and the like. It's not with the chocolates or the cocoa powder in the baking section. The ones out here usually have nibs in a few different brands and powder in at least one. If not it's one amazon, oneluckyduck.com and a host of other websites.

I got mine (hulled buckwheat- oragnic!) in a bulk bin at a local healthfood store and am in the process of soaking them right now! I can't wait to see how it turns out-- sounds something like my kids would love!

Raw buckwheat groats are kind of white and green and pale tan. If they look brownish, they're probably roasted. Anything called kasha is roasted. Here are a couple more links to actually raw buckwheat groats: http://www.goldminenaturalfoods.com/raw/detail.aspx?ID=114 , http://www.amazon.com/Hulled-Buckwheat-Groats-Certified-Hydroponics/dp/B... . You may find buckwheat with the black hull still on; these are raw and sproutable but you definitely don't want to use them for this kind of recipe; the hull is very very hard.

Try amazon.com, and search for buckwheat organic Bob's Red Mill.

You can get 128 oz. (that's 8 16 oz. bags!) for 24 bucks.

My Whole Foods doesn't carry it, but some do. Does yours have a separate raw food section? That's usually where you can find it. Also, Amazon.com usually has the cheapest prices on raw organic cacao nibs and powders--and often free shipping if you spend $25 or more.

This recipe sounds great--will try! Writeeternity, I believe the label should say raw cacao (powder or nibs, which I usually grind to a powder in my grinder). I've found them at our local supplement store (but not healthfood store) and online. They also make a yummy chocolate milk.

Hi I just went to whole foods and looked at the cocoa powder. None of it said raw but does anyone know if they sell a raw one? Thanks!

I've made the cinnamon version of this before and it's definitely one of those "can't believe it's raw recipes." So yummy! Much better than any rice cake I've ever had!

You can break it apart into small pieces like cereal, and it's great with any kind of nut or seed milk or on its own as a snack. It stores well...if you can stop from munching on it, that is. :) I think I'll have to revisit this recipe sometime soon, maybe with cacao powder.

Is this supposed to be like a rice cake? It sounds good.
