Two cool things to share with you today, the first being this recipe for Coconut Buckwheat Cereal Mix. This is a great blend to make ahead of time to serve with berries and your choice of non-dairy milk (homemade coconut milk is a great option) or even a homemade raw milk kefir or yogurt.
To start, you’ll want to get some coconut flakes that are unsweetened:
The flakes are easily toasted at 325 degrees for 5-7 minutes when spread out on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet:
Your choice of about one cup total of nuts and seeds is a nice way to add protein and nutrition your mix. I like these raw sunflower and pumpkin seeds from Vitacost.com (I am not an affiliate, but new customers get $10 off using this link):
Combine everything in a bowl:
For storage, I’ve been using the silicone-wrapped glass bowls from Lifefactory.com (full disclosure: I was sent a set of the bowls, but all opinions are my own):
I love how the tops have a clasp to keep them secure, not to mention that all the materials are BPA/BPS-free and fully resuable:
Here’s the recipe for this gluten- and grain-free blend:Print
- 1 cup toasted coconut flakes*
- 2 cups buckwheat groats that have been soaked, rinsed, and dehydrated at 115°F for at least 8-10 hours
- ½ cup raw pumpkin seeds
- ½ raw sunflower seeds
- *To toast coconut flakes, heat your oven to 325°F. Spread coconut flakes on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and bake for 5-7 minutes, keeping a close eye on the flakes so they do not burn. Let flakes cool on the pan for 10 minutes before using.
- Combine toasted coconut flakes, buckwheat groats, pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds in a medium bowl and stir to combine. Serve with your favorite non-dairy milk (homemade coconut milk is a great option).
- Store in a glass container the fridge for up to a month.
Finally, the ‘peeps at Lifefactory would love to send one lucky reader a set of four of these storage bowls, two 2-cup and two 4-cup sizes. Woo-hoo! I’ll select the winner at random on Monday, March 9th. Continental U.S. residents only, must be over the age of 18 to enter:
