Grawnola, the dinner of lazy raw champions.



I've always loved breakfast for dinner. Cereal was a lazy standby when I just didn't feel like making an effort. So tonight I had my raw equivalent. Much healthier, much tastier, and much more satisfying.

I made the grawnola with sprouted buckwheat, soaked sunflower seeds, flax seeds, almonds, goji berries, honey and cinnamon.

The milk is brazil nut/almond.

The strawberries are amazingly sweet.

YUM.

Let me know if you want the full recipe for the grawnola. It's pretty easy to do; sprouting, mixing, dehydrating.

Gonna go make a kale salad. Have a great night.

By popular request, here's the Grawnola recipe. Enjoy!

Grawnola!

A really easy, really customizable granola that packs well for camping, the office, or is a yummy breakfast with almond milk!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups buckwheat, sprouted
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds, soaked (optional)
  • 1 cup dried fruit
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons agave or honey (or both!)
  • 2 tablespoons shredded dried coconut
  • 1 cup nuts of your choice

Preparation

Grind nuts of your choice (I used walnuts and almonds) in a FP with sunflower seeds. Add in fruit (I used goji berries), pulse the FP. Then add in cinnamon, agave, honey. Mix into bowl with buckwheat and coconut until thoroughly blended.

Spread onto Teflex sheets, and dehydrate for about 8-10 hours at 110/115.

The great thing about this granola is that you can add more nuts or less, more fruit, and spices of your choice. It’s really easy and makes the whole house smell AMAZING.
