RAW CARROT BUCKWHEAT GRANOLA


 
One of the best things to do to continue on your raw food journey is to be sure to have the foods you want to eat on hand.  I love making raw granola so I can have it handy to take to work or have around the house for a healthy treat whenever I feel that urge to snack.
 
I love Fragrant Vanilla Cake!  My inspiration came from her Carrot Cake Granola.  Oh my! Sooo delicious.  You have to try it!  Follow Amy  for all her deliciously raw sweet treats!
 

RAW CARROT BUCKWHEAT GRANOLA

 
2 cups raw buckwheat
3 cups carrots, shredded
1-1/2 cups coconut flakes
1 cup raw  pecans, soaked for 6 hours and drained
1 cup raw almonds, soaked for 6 hours and drained, loosely chopped
1/3 cups raw agave or honey
1/4 cup raw coconut butter
1 ripe banana
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 cup filtered water
1 tablespoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons cardamom
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted to a liquid
 
Soak the buckwheat for 30 minutes and rinse very well.  The buckwheat will have a slimy coating.  Rinse it off the best you can and drain.
 
Put the buckwheat, coconut flakes and nuts in a large blow and set aside.
 
In a food processor, combine the agave or honey, coconut butter, banana, sea salt, vanilla, water, spices, coconut oil and 1 cup of the shredded carrots.  Process until smooth.  Pour the mixture over the granola and add the remaining carrots.  Mix with your hands and then spread  out onto your dehydrator sheets.  Dehydrate for about 12 hours or until crispy.  Store in an airtight container at room temperature for about a week. 
 
Enjoy!  It's like eating your favorite carrot cake but even better!

Can we put it in the oven insted of dehydrater? If so, how long and at what temp would you say?

Hello Veronica,
Thanks for the note. I have heard of people trying to simulate a dehydrator in the oven, putting it on the lowest possible setting with the door slightly opened. But, I am sure you can also bake it in the oven (Although I have not tried it with this recipe.) You can try baking it at 300 until crisp. Enjoy! xFelicia
