With the tease of cooler weather and the familiar smell of August I wanted to make an undeniably “summer” recipe. Summer is not over yet! With an abundance of delicious local raw milk I have a constant hankering for cereal, and my body knows I need more buckwheat and not boxed cereal (even though I love it so!). After this shoot I think I’ve had my fill of cereal for the week! Enjoy and feel free to add more coconut sugar if you’re looking for something sweeter.

Berry Vanilla Buckwheat Granola
4 cups buckwheat groats (soaked and dehydrated)
2 cups oat flour (I used soaked and dehydrated steal cut oats)
1 cup coconut sugar
1 cup water
1 cup berries (I thawed frozen mixed berries)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon Pink Himalayan salt

In a large bowl mix buckwheat groats, oat flour, coconut sugar, and salt. Add in vanilla and water and combine thoroughly. Fold in berries. Dehydrate at 105-118 degrees Fahrenheit until crunchy (overnight works great). Enjoy!

Once again, I’m obsessed with buckwheat! Can’t get enough of it. This sweet crunchy cookie is a decadently rich version of a cooked favorite. Dehydrate a short time for a soft cookie and a long time for a more crispy cookie. This has been a childhood favorite of mine and I’m happy to say this recipe hit the spot!

Peanut Butter Cookies
2 cups buckwheat groats (soaked and dehydrated)
1 cup coconut sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter (just peanuts/peanuts and salt)
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon Celtic Sea salt

Grind 1 cup of buckwheat groats into a fine flour. In a food processor pulse remaining cup of buckwheat groats, coconut sugar, and salt until a coarse flour. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Roll into teaspoon sized balls and press twice using a fork. I found putting the fork into some coconut sugar between pressing prevented the dough from sticking to the fork. Dehydrate at 105 degrees Fahrenheit until crunchy. Enjoy!

Chocolate Chip Cookies

The time has come, I confess, I’m not a raw foodist. But wait! I have a very good excuse…errreason. Way back in the summer I worked on a farm in Wisconsin and my raw lifestyle, well, it kind of ended. I was working hard and eating off the land, so I wasn’t worried about all the cooked food I had suddenly added to my diet.

Needless to say I lived! I made it out alive, and today I have a new perspective. The main reason I’m still not eating mostly raw (I haven’t ever been 100% except for seasons) is after returning home from my farming adventure I lost my appetite. Due to some personal trauma and an abusive relationship I sunk into a depression, lost a ton of weight, and only ate what I could stomach. That ended up being things I wouldn’t normally eat, but I had to eat something.

I’m doing much better these days and have been good about adding good ol’ kale and buckwheat back into my regular diet (they were always some of my favs). However, running to Jesus and admitting I needed help is the best thing I did/I’m doing, and so life goes.

With all of that being said, this is a new recipe! Finally! Wooo! Yes! :D I’m eager to get back to sharing healthy recipes with you all, which will in turn motivate me to come up with new and delicious raw and sometimes just plain ol’ healthy hearty cooked recipes. That’s where this recipe lands, cooked, but made out of nutrient rich goodness!




Chocolate Chip Cookies
4 c flour (I LOVE buckwheat*, but almond, oat, any gluten free, etc. works)
1 c coconut oil
2/3 c raw honey
2 eggs
1 t baking soda
1/4 t Celtic Sea salt
chocolate chips (as many or as little as you like)

Preheat oven to 350. Mix ingredients except chocolate chips. Add chocolate chips. Drop teaspoon amounts on to parchment paper lined cookie sheets. Bake for 10 mins. Enjoy!

*I found that I need to add an extra egg when using just buckwheat flour.
