What was your favorite cereal growing up ? Mine was Frosted Flakes or Coco Crispies.
Buckwheat is the main ingredient in this cereal. It’s not wheat,it’s actually a fruit,which means that it digest’s much better. Buckwheat is full of antioxidants. It also helps to lower cholesterol,is gluten free and full of protein.
Speaking of raw, I wanted to talk to you about where raw foods has gone. I feel like raw food has evolved and I have evolved with it. The days when I had twenty hours to soak cashews and almonds overnight are over. I just can’t see myself dehydrating foods on a daily basis anymore.It’s to time consuming.I still make raw food pies,ice-creams,smoothies and salads.However I keep the dehydrated foods to a minimum.
This cereal is so good that I had to dust off my dehydrator to make it. It’s crispy and crunchy,those are two textures that you don’t find in foods that are close to nature very often.
You can top your ice-cream with it or sprinkle some over homemade candy bars and truffles. It’s also good with ice-cold milk of course.
Make sure that you buy the raw buckwheat which has a green color to it. The other buckwheat is brown and is also cooked. The great thing about this recipe is that you can add chocolate powder for a Coco Crispies like taste or spruce it up with spices like cardamom. The choice is all yours.
I made cashew,date coconut milk to throw over mine however store brought milk works perfect too.
Enjoy and let me know what you think.
