So! Hello! Let´s up this rawfood game together, shall we? Granola is usually made from oats, nuts, seeds and dried fruits. For me, granola is just something crunchy on my smoothie. I always loved to add plain dehydrated&sprouted buckwheat on top of my smoothie bowls. But for you I leveled this up a bit! 😉 Aaaaand it means hazelnutt&chocolate flavour!
This can be a new thing for those of you who never tried to sprout buckwheat. Or to those who actually never tried to sprout anything ;D. No worries, I got you. I will soon post an article for beginners with sprouting, for people who are kinda into the idea of trying a sprouting but totally haven´t a clue how to do it. It´s easy! And I will guide you through it.
With this recipe though, I will act like you already know how to generate your own buckwheat sprouts – so I would say it´s for more advanced rawfood enthusiasts! 🙂
Well, ok, little hint:
1. you soak buckwheat overnight,
2. after a soaking it for at least 6-8 hours you will drain it, put it into a sip where it can breathe and you will wash it tree times a day,
3. and tadaaaaa, after 2 days you will have a fresh home-selfgrown-sprouts!)
For it to be raw you also need a dehydrator. I´ve never tried raw vegan recipes in the oven or drying it under the Sun, but those people exist and they have succes with it :D. So again, no worries if you don´t own one, oven/Sun could be enough. Especially if you don´t care if it is gonna stay raw or not!
Again, this is what I like and I encourage you to do it your own creative way. If you don´t like hazelnutt-chocolate flavour, do your own thing, honey ;D. You can make it fruity, with nuts and seeds, levander, orange, whatever you can imagine ;). So let the buckwheat sprouts be the base and then you do whatever you like ;).
Hezelnutt Chocolate Buckwheat Granola
- 500g fresh buckwheat sprouts
- 35g hazelnutt oil
- 100g coconut sugar
- 10g gingerbread spice (cinnamon, anyz, kardamon, muscat nut, ginger, ..)
- 40g raw cacao powder
Put the sprouts into a big bowl and first add oil and combine all perfectly.
Add coconut sugar and mix all together well.
Add gingerbread spice, mix, add cacao powder and mix again.
Spread it all onto a dehydrator sheet and let it in the dehydrator overnight. Or watch it during the day and take it out once you think it´s fully dehydrated so it can last forever ;D. It will not, trust me.
