Recipe Directions

Mash the banana with a splash of almond milk, mix as much buckwheat as you want for a tasty crunch.

This was really good, and I love the simplicity. You could also add some honey or agave if you really have a sweet tooth, but I didn't think it needed it.

miandluismi:

I believe 105* is the highest most people consider food to still be raw, though if you look through books by different authors, and message boards here, you will find some conflicting info on this.

hi scott, buckwheat sprouts are my favorite because they’re so easy. it’s possible that the ones you got were roasted. if they’re green, they’re raw. brown=roasted.

all you do is soak them for 20-30 mins and no more (buckwheat can become water-logged if you soak for longer). then just drain and set in a colander over a bowl and rinse twice daily. they will sprout in about a day and a half. i find this website really helpful: www.sproutpeople.com

happy sprouting!

What taste does the buckwheat have? Is it like wheat germ? How high can something be cooked in raw cooking? I have a banana recipe that I would like to change to a raw recipe but it's cooked higher than I believe raw food is cooked.

Buckwheat crispies are made by dehydrating buckwheat groats that have been soaked. I found Alissa Cohen's recipe, which was really simple. Soak groats overnight, rinse really well, then dehydrate for 4-6 hours at 105 degrees. Easy as pie. I agree that they are an acquired taste, as I didn't like them much at first, but now I love them! I love to eat them with raisins, sunflower seeds and vanilla almond milk sweetened with dates. Yummo!

I do this often and I also add hemp seeds and goji berries or raisins. Sometimes I just put this all in a romaine lettuce leaf (minus the milk) and eat it as a romaine roll up.

This looks good and easy, but what are buckwheat crispies? I have some raw buckwheat. I tried to sprout it a while back, but it didn't sprout - not sure why. I believe I bought raw buckwheat. It just turned soft and eventually soured after a few days... Any help would be appreciated. Both with how to make buckwheat crispies and how to sprout buckwheat in general....

Yum! Cacao powder sounds really great in this.

Joanna: I was surprised by how much buckwheat I kept adding. I really like the crunch they add, so I'm hoping that soon I will be eating more buckwheat than banana.

i've made this before and it's awesome!! i use vanilla nut mylk and put maple syrup on mine (not raw) for some extra sweetness. buckwheat crispies definitely have a distinct flavor that takes some getting used to, but i really like them.
