I recently tried this recipe from one of my absolute favorite cookbooks. The Vegetarian Mother's Cookbook. I stumbled across this cookbook when I was expecting my first daughter and have consistently utilitzed it ever since. For whatever reason, this particular recipe never caught my eye before. I recently made the Crunchy Buckwheat Cereal recipe and we all loved it. Thumbs up from all four family members equates to blog worthy. So here is a super easy, wholesome, homemade breakfast cereal recipe, straight from The Vegetarian Mothers Cookbook.
Crunchy Buckwheat Cereal
2 cups raw whole Buckwheat Groats (found at local health food stores or online)
2 TBS sweetener (Raw Honey, Maple Syrup, Brown Rice Syrup,...)
1/4 cup nut or seed butter (almond butter, peanut butter, sunflower seed butter, tahini,..)
Preheat oven to 300F. Spread buckwheat on large baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes. Stir buckwheat around a bit and roast for another 15-20 minutes until more golden. Immediately mix hot buckwheat with sweetener and nut or seed butter until buckwheat is coated. Cool. Store in covered jar in refrigerator. To serve, place 1/2 cup of cereal in bowl cover with milk of choice. Add fresh or dried fruit.
Makes approximately 4 servings. I have been doubling the recipe to stretch it out a little longer and give us several days of easy breakfasts. I personally like to use homemade coconut milk with this cereal. Oh so good!!
