Raw Cacao Granola

I love granola. It is so versatile and delicious. Allas the store bought kind is either way too sugary or way overpriced. That’s why I started making my own at home a couple years back. I have a dehydrator, therefore I always choose to make my granola raw and have only experimented with cooked granola a couple times. I prefer the raw version as it is densely packed with high quality nutrients and makes me feel light and alive while still full and nourished. Here is my latest creation. I hope you enjoy it!

ImageIngredients:

  • 2 C sprouted buckwheat
  • 11/2 C small oats
  • 1 C shredded coconut
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 C cacao powder
  • 1/2 C soaked sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 C melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 C maple syrup (or any sweetener of your choice)

Steps:

  • after soaking the buckwheat overnight, drain it and put in a bowl (if you have time to leave it to sprout for a few days, it will bring up the nutritional value a great deal!)
  • add the oats and cacao powder and mix well
  • then add remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly
  • spread on a teflex dehydrator sheet and set at 105*F for about 12 hours or until desired consistency (I like mine crispy, plus the less moisture left in the granola, the longer it will save).
  • serve with your favorite milk and enjoy!
