Gluten-Free Raw (Dehydrated) Granola Recipe

This Christmas season is so precious... both of our sons, my daughter-in-law, and granddaughters will be here to spend time with us, the oldies.  Our younger son is a very creative "raw" chef and created this wonderful gluten-free "Raw-Nola" -- I actually wasn't even aware of his soaking and dehydrating, he is so neat in the kitchen (I think he did the soaking inside one of the cupboards).  The resulting "raw-nola" is sweet, crunchy, tasty, and very healthy.  No extra sweeteners are needed, so there is also that extra bonus...

Soak the following individually in water: 
2 C. Buckwheat groats
1 C. Sunflower Seeds
1 C. Thompsons Raisins
1/2 C. Pumpkin Seeds
Soak overnight, drain, and rinse and soak for another 8 hours, except for the raisins.  Drain and rinse the raisins and dehydrate for 8 hours at 105 degrees F.  Add the buckwheat and the seeds to the raisins and dehydrate for about 8-12 hours at 105 degrees.
Add the following:
1/2 C. Dehulled Hempseed
1/2 C. organic unsweetened shredded Coconut
1 tsp. organic Cinnamon

  1. Buckwheat groats? Interesting...never tried those...Might have to work up a bit of courage to try this but I'm willing to give it a shot.

  2. Hi there-- dehydrated buckwheat groats are surprisingly pleasant... have that crunch appeal and have a nice mild sweet flavour. I've done a couple of other posts that use these "buckwheat crispies":

    Enjoy! ~Cynthia
