These are convenient snacks for traveling. They are good to have on hand when you need a quick bite to eat. They will keep for a month or two when stored in an airtight container at room temperature. Keep in mind, though, that the buckwheat needs to be sprouted for 24 hours first.
INGREDIENTS | SERVES 8
- 1½ cups dry buckwheat
- 1 cup almonds, soaked
- ½ cup dates or raisins, soaked for 1 hour
- 1 cup flaxseeds, soaked
- ½ cup young coconut meat
- 3 tablespoons raw honey or agave nectar
- 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
Soak the raw buckwheat groats in 4 cups water for 30 minutes. Drain, rinse, and sprout for 24 hours.
Using the S blade in a food processor, process all ingredients until well mixed. Do not over process — mixture should still be chunky.
Form mixture into rectangle bar shapes and place on dehydrator trays with nonstick sheets. Dehydrate at 145°F for 2 to 3 hours.
Flip over the bars and continue dehydrating at 110°F for another 12 hours or until dry.
