Prep Time

20 minutes

Prep Notes

Soak buckwheat groats for 4 hours.

Ingredients

1 cup organic buckwheat groats, soak for 4 hours, rinse & drain VERY WELL
1/2 cup organic golden flax seeds, cover with water and soak for 4 hours {do not drain soak water}
1 cup organic sliced raw almonds, soak for 4 hours, rinse & drain
1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds, cover w/ water & soak 4 hours, rinse & drain
1 cup gluten-free whole oats
1/2 cup hemp hearts
1 cup dried fruit - raisins, blueberries, cherries, strawberries, cranberries
1/2 cup unsweetened organic coconut
1 tbsp pure vanilla extract - no alcohol
1/2 cup raw honey
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp sea salt

Directions

*Plan ahead to soak necessary ingredients* Rinse buckwheat groats very well after soaking. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, stir to combine. Divide mixture among 2 dehydrator trays with nonstick sheets (Paraflex). Dehydrate for 6 hours at 110 degrees. If granola still needs more time after 6 hours, remove from nonstick sheet and dehydrate until crunchy/crispy.

I have never done this recipe in a oven, but it is possible. Turn oven to very lowest setting. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper. Stir every 15 minutes, granola will be done cooking in 30-45 minutes.

*Please note: If cooked in an oven - granola will no longer be considered raw/living.

Store in an airtight glass container.
