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 have never used buckwheat groats-- is it it something you can get at whole foods? Any prep tips?

Hi Jenny, you should be able to get them at your local health food store. They are dry and very crunchy. They are usually sold in bulk. And prep tips? Nope, I don't really prep em - just use them as is!

Hello! My roommate and started raw veganism on the first of this month, and your website has been invaluable. I just wanted to let you know that this breakfast is delicious! We couldn't find buckwheat groats, so we substituted hemp seeds-- which turned out to be really, really fantastic. We also didn't have cashew milk (we're waiting on the good blender in the mail) so we ended up using the blender we have currently to blend a banana with water and vanilla chai proten mix (raw and vegan), and we used that as a cashew milk substitute. It was extremely tasty :D
Thank you!

You are welcome Sarah J! Sounds like you picked a fabulous roommate. Everything is more fun with two!  Love your substitutions, btw. I LOVE hempseed hearts.   Sooo exciting about your good blender coming in the mail! :)

Am I missing some ingredients? I see some people saying buckwheat is in it, and almond, but I don't see it in the ingredients list.
I am also new to raw food, and I am looking for a quick breakfast in the morning. The inches and weight have been falling off this month and I feel so much better (no headaches, bloating, and more energy) .

I bought organic white buckwheat from the natural foods store.On the ingredients list the only item mentioned is white buckwheat groat. It then goes on to say that it needs to be cooked 15-25 minutes. Did I buy the right buckwheat groats, or do I just need to take it out of the package and sprinkle it on? I have enjoyed your website.

Hi Christine, no, you do not need to do anything. Just sprinkle them on. They are very hard and crunchy, but that's part of the fun!

My new favourite breaky with the cashew milk! I love to have a heartier breakfast once in a while and as I am only beginning to explore raw living, I was getting tired of smoothies most mornings! So thank you for this recipe!

About the groats, I've never eaten them like that. I assumed you soaked/partially sprouted then dehydrated them -- they are quite light and crunchy that way, almost like a raw rice crispy. I'll have to try them as you suggest. I imagine they are more "meaty" they way you prepare them.

Yes, but I don't soak for too long so they do still retain some crispness :)

Nice to know they can be eaten like this. Tried them in my raw "cereal" this morning with some pecans and chia seeds. Not bad. Thanks!

This does look fantastic. I'm a raw food newbie, I've never seen a buckwheat goat, but if it is like oat groats, isn't it really hard? How on earth can you just throw them into a bowl and nosh? Super excited to explore you site more, thanks in advance for helping newbies like myself.

Yes, they ARE very hard so you've got to watch your teeth. But if you let them sit in water for like, ten minutes or so (I usually put the groats and the water/cashew milk in the bowl FIRST, then I chop my apple and add the rest) - and by the time I am ready to eat they've softened a bit.

This is the BEST cereal I ever had!!!. I have been trying to eat vegetarian for a few months now, and have been very hesitant about raw. However, your wonderful recipes are making me a believer. The weight is just falling off of me. It's so hard to believe that fruits, vegetables and nuts can be so delicious and make a variety of foods that I thought I would have to give up. Thank you for your wonderful web site.
