Recipe Directions

  • Simply assemble in a cereal bowl. You don't have to be exact with your measurements, but you should try to include the chopped apple since without the apple there isn't much to bulk up this recipe. Pour cashew milk on top and consume immediately.
  • This serves one. Sometimes I'll have two bowls (two servings) if I'm hungry :)

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Good morning,

I am having this as a raw breakfast cereal recipe on the weekends these days. I tend to have green smoothies on weekdays when I am in a rush, and raw breakfast cereal on the weekends when I have more time for a treat. Although this recipe is super quick!

This raw breakfast cereal recipe reminds me a bit of Alpen or granola, but it's raw and quick to prepare as long as you have cashew milk in the fridge. I don't always have cashew milk on the go, but I made a big batch lately so I've been enjoying this raw breakfast cereal recipe while the cashew milk lasts.

And if I don't have cashew milk, sometimes I will just splash some water on this instead. It's certainly better with a nut milk - but water will do in a pinch. Especially if you are on the go and trying to get out the door in the morning!

I ended up using old fashioned oats instead of buckwheat and pine nuts instead of almonds...only because that's what I had in my house. It was yummy. I'll try the exact recipe soon when I go to the market. Thanks for the great recipe!

Oh, how long is the shelf life on buckwheat groats?

Long time! Similar to flour or rolled oats or that kind of thing. Keep in dry, dark cool place

I'm new to your blog!!! I love your quick recipes. Do you soak any of your raw nuts in your recipes? I've read in other raw books that they are better digested when soaked due to activating the enzymes.

Yes, they are better when they are soaked but, realistically, I very rarely soak except for when I explicitly state that you have to soak (for better blending or processing in afood processor).

Sometimes you will also have to soak if you have a crappy blender (to soften the nuts).

Curious to know if you just prefer cashew milk over almond milk, or if there is a specific reason you drink it over almond milk?

Yes, there is a reason and it's due to laziness. :)

Almond milk you have to strain with a nut bag. Cashew milk = no straining

I have just begun to embrace the raw food lifestyle. Your website is super-helpful and full of delicious recipes that I can't wait to try. When you prepare this cereal recipe, are the buckwheat groats soaked?

This is a perfect example of an easy US recipe that won't fly in rural Nicaragua. If there is an apple it is imported and expensive. (That's the easy part--lots of other fresh fruit here.) But, no buckwheat groats, no almonds (even though they grow here), possibly no sunflower seeds (even though we buy them for our parrot) and no cashew milk even though people sell hand-toasted cashews on the street.

Amazing and cheap stuff here but it is just different.
