Hi claire, well it's the buckwheat that give it the crunch but you could try using roughly ground seeds or nuts.

Love those cute cats! Glad you enjoyed the recipe. Buckwheaties are just sprouted buckwheat groats, when they have little tails (2-3 days) dry them in the dehydrator until they are crunchy. Great for breakfast and for grinding into flour for biscuits and cakes.

Thanks for a great recipe, Sweetpea! I just made this divine treat now I'm having a hard time stopping myself from eating it all! I changed the ingredients around somewhat cuz I don't love carob, so I did half carob half cacao, then I used honey in the place of suma, added a little vanilla and the cardamom. Wow the cardamom gave it a surprising and yummy flavor (I used crdamom seeds which I ground with the sprouted buckwheat). I dehydrated the sprouted buckwheat on plates on my radiator cuz I don't have one yet.

How many tablespoons of mesquite/carob flour are we supposed to use? Is it 1? Or 11? something else? Thanks!

Hello, you can add anything you want here, I use mesquite meal for sweetness and add mixed spice too. Vanilla and cardamon sound good. Suma is another nice sweetner. I've been having a square sandwiched together with a mint chocolate - divine!

I've been looking for a treat to make with ground buckwheaties. What does Suma taste like? Would vanilla and cardamom work for flavor? Thanks Sweetpea!
