Hemp Nut and Spice Cereal

Hemp seeds are one of the most nutritious and balanced of all seeds and nuts.  They are rich in healthy omega oils and protein, and have a great nutty flavor.

This recipe is gluten-free - as buckwheat is not a gluten grain.

You will need a food dehydrator for this recipe.

2 cups whole buckwheat groats (untoasted)
1 1/2 cups hulled hemp seeds
1/2 cup flaxseeds
4 tablespoons maple syrup, agave syrup or raw honey (for low-phenol use a sweetener other than honey)
1 tablespoon gluten-free vanilla extra
1 tablespoon cinnamon (use spices sparingly when sensitive to phenols)
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon celtic sea salt or crystal salt

Soak 2 cups whole buckwheat in 5 cups of fresh water overnight (about 6-12 hours).  Drain and rinse in a colander or strainer until the rinse water runs clear.  Shake the colander or strainer to help drain.  Allow buckwheat to stand for 10 minutes to drain well.

Mix buckwheat, hemp seeds, flaxseeds, maple syrup or honey, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a bowl.  Spread mixture into a thin layer on dehydrator trays (it should not be necessary to use nonstick sheets).  Dehydrate at 108 degrees for 12-24 hours or until dry.  (Climate, temperature, and humidity all affect dehydrating time.)

Store in clean glass jars with lids in a cool, dry place or in the freezer.
