A combination of orange, vanilla, almond, cinnamon with a batch of sprouted buckwheat makes this grawnola a yummy breakfast treat. I am a big fan of grawnola, although I don't make it as much as I'd like to. Buckwheat is such a nice and light grain, especially when sprouted, and the orange-vanilla combination really highlights the overall flavours of the recipe. Enjoy!
I was trying to come up with a cereal to take camping and made this. Now I eat it every day! It is thick and creamy with a great texture. It is easy to pack so that I can eat at work. My mom, who isn't raw, is hooked! I made her two gallon ziplocs to take home with her, she lives several states away. This recipe multiples easily, the ratio is 2 to 1 to 1/2.
Makes about 8 crackers measuring 10 cm x 12 cm (4 " x 4.5 " )
I am very fortunate in that I have a dehydrator, but I don't actually use it every week. Part of the reason is that I want to develop recipes that are accessible to as many people a possible, and since not many people have a dehydrator, I try and not use it too much.
However, last week, I really felt that I needed to make some nice things for myself to support my food choices, and provide me with an alternative to bread. For me, having access to raw alternatives to bread, wraps and crackers means that I can add some more interest to my food. Not only are sandwiches and wraps convenient - just top with some yummy avocado and veggies and you have a satisfying lunch - but they are also great when you want something a little heavier than a salad. This is particularly useful in the colder months, especially here in Sweden! And for me, having a cup of tea and a sandwich is just so comforting. This probably stems back to my upbringing, but I find tea and toast, or tea and cake just so very cozy, which means that these crackers fulfill me on an emotional level, without having to eat regular cooked, gluten-filled bread.
So I came up with these crackers, and I just love them. They are free from nuts and flax seeds, which can leave me feeling a little heavy, and are really flavoursome without being overpowering, like some crackers I have tried. I usually top the crackers with avocado, a sprinkling of lemon juice, a little herb salt, and plenty of salad leaves and veggie slices. Delicious!
If you fancy investing in a dehydrator, you can find them online here at The Fresh Network.
As I said, I rarely post recipes that are limited to folks with a dehydrator and I made sure that my e-book 'Loving Life-Loving Desserts' did not contain any recipes that require a dehydrator.
