Recipe Directions

Grind nuts of your choice (I used walnuts and almonds) in a FP with sunflower seeds. Add in fruit (I used goji berries), pulse the FP. Then add in cinnamon, agave, honey. Mix into bowl with buckwheat and coconut until thoroughly blended.
Spread onto Teflex sheets, and dehydrate for about 8-10 hours at 110/115.
The great thing about this granola is that you can add more nuts or less, more fruit, and spices of your choice. It’s really easy and makes the whole house smell AMAZING. I’ll post a pic when I get the next batch out. :)

RawVee's Thoughts

A really easy, really customizable granola that packs well for camping, the office, or is a yummy breakfast with almond milk!

Thanks so much for the recipe! I used the sunflower seeds, and for fruit I used a mixture of cranberries, gogi berries, and dates. For the nuts, I used walnuts & almonds. I like how you said to leave the buckwheat whole - I think that will be a nice addition to the texture & look of it. I sampled a bit of it before it went into the dehydrator and I'm really happy how it turned out - it's delicious now, so I can't wait to taste it dry. I've had such a hit-or-miss time with recipes, I'm glad to have found a keeper. :)

My whole family (and co-workers) just LOVE this! I am lucky to have access to buckwheat groats, because I know they are hard to find. I found that I like to make this a bit differently. I leave the sunflower seeds whole, hand cut up the fruit into little pieces (1/4" or less), and only use the food processor to pulse the nuts to the size that I like. Then in a giant bowl I mix everything together by hand with a wooden spoon or my hands. I also doubled the agave because I guess I have a sweet tooth. This is absolutely fantastic by itself, and heavenly as a cereal with date sweetened almond milk. Thank you for a recipe that will be a lifelong keeper!

Looks fab, I usually make this up at the end of summer so that I've got a box of the stuff over the Autumn.

Numptellie, I'm wary of the oven, because the temp can be a bit tricky to regulate. If you use an oven thermometer and keep the door cracked, that usually can be made to work, but it's really wasteful, energy-wise.
Bodymyrgth, the mucousy stuff, though gross, won't harm you. It has the same kind of consistency as flax when you soak it. I soaked my buckwheat overnight (over 10 hours) and it was just fine. You'll know if buckwheat has gone bad because it will smell off--kind of sour. As for the seeds and nuts, I soak all my nuts and seeds--usually for about an hour for flax and two hours for sunflower seeds. Personally, I digest them more easily when I do.
What did you put on the granola? My favorite is to make nut milk with vanilla bean and a date. Mmmmmmmmmm.

Hi,
I might have a situation. I have been salivating ovet this recipe for a while now. I gathered the ingredients and tonight I mixed it up. It's in the dehydrator right now. It's beautiful. Here's the hitch- or here are the hitches. I didn't read far enough down i nthe ocmmentaries, so I edned up soaking the buckwheat for a little over 24 hours. I came home this evening, rinsed it pretty well, but ther was some mucus-yliquid left around some of them. I thought that must be normal-- Wil I kill me? I'll know better next time. Also, I don't know if I would consider them sprouted, but thegroats were oh, so tender,and I ate a small sample of the stuff totally raw amd it was STILL good. Wo- what kind of situation am I in? I am also new to this choice....Any advices?

Hi, I'm both new and numb. Would it be concievable to use an oven instead of a dehydrator? I am going to buy one but in the meantime I am desperate to make this. Also, how long does this sort of thing keep? Can I make a big box and store it?
Thanks. :-)

Mine was very chunky, but it may just be because of the coconut (it kind of binds things). I'm making another batch this weekend. YUM!!!!

This is a RAWLICIOUS breakfast! I used it as a base and added more goodies...cranberries, pumpkin seeds, golden raisins etc. ?... how thick was yours in the picture? To make it in clumps. Mine was thin and crumbly. RAWLICIOUS!

When things sprout they break open and take off their jacket(hull), I would assume it is the same for buckwheat, or maybe it just softens and becomes edible. Either way sounds good :)

Another buckwheat question: I have both hulled and unhulled in my pantry. Which do you use for this recipe? The hulled buckwheat doesn't sprout for me, as far as I can tell. If you are using unhulled, do you just eat the seed covers?

You only need to soak Buckwheat for 15-20 minutes to get it going for sprouts, overnight for Buckwheat lettuce. You have to rinse it REALLY well, though, at the end. It shouldn't have that shiny mucous any more when you're all done. Sprouting time depends on air temperature. In my experience, it takes 1-3 days: 1 in the summer and 3 in the winter when the house is cold (I live in PA, USA). I sprout in a stainless steel colander, which makes rinsing quite a breeze.

Raisins go fabulous with pumpkin seeds and medjool dates go fabulous with Brazil Nuts, either would be great in this recipe!

Just purchased some buckwheat this weekend since I can't do most grains because I absolutely love granola in the morning for breakfast. Thanks for sharing this. Soaking them now.

I soaked my buckwheat overnight, and sprouted for two days, rinsing twice a day and draining. It's super easy! :)

Sorry, Alexandra! For some reason it didn't get added when I originally posted. I say about a cup, but it's really up to you as to how much you want in there! :)
