Raw Buckwheat Granola


Tis' the season to eat pumpkin, apples and cranberries. Take this great granola recipe and make one sweet treat.


Recipe by



3 cups buckwheat, soaked & dehydrated (instructions below)

1 small granny smith apple, cored and chopped

1 tbsp ginger, diced

1/2 cup pumpkin, chopped (any sweet variety will do, I used butternut squash)

2 tsp vanilla extract

2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

3 1/2 tbsp maple syrup, agave, or raw honey

1/2 cup pumpkin seeds, sprouted and dried (sprout same method as buckwheat)

1/2 cup dried cranberries (apple juice sweetened)

agave, maple syrup or honey to taste



Soaking & Dehydrating Buckwheat:

Soak buckwheat overnight in room temperature filtered water, make sure to cover the buckwheat enough so that when it expands, there will still be water.  After soaking, at least 8 hours, drain off water.  You can go ahead and sprout the rinsed buckwheat by placing it in a colander, jar with mesh lid, or a nut milk bag.  Set it aside to sprout, but be sure to rinse and drain the sprouts about 3 times a day.  Buckwheat will sprout in about 2 days.


Place dry buckwheat in a large mixing bowl.  In a food processor blend the apple and ginger with 1/2 tablespoon of agave until it's the consistency of apple sauce, a little chunky. Place this mixture into the bowl with the buckwheat and stir. Now, blend pumpkin until minced; add this to bowl and stir.

Stir in vanilla extract, pumpkin pie spice and 3 tablespoons of sweetener.  Stir to incorporate all of the ingredients, then scoop onto the dehydrator teflex sheets and spread evenly.  You'll be using 2 trays.   Dehydrate for 12 hours, or until crispy, on 115°.

In a large bowl, mix the granola with pumpkin seeds and cranberries.  Serve with maple syrup.
