Crunchy Raw Granola

2 cups sprouted buckwheat (soak overnight, rinse well and allow to sprout in dark place for 2 days, rinsing at least once a day)
1 cup raw almonds (soaked overnight)
1 cup raw pumpkin seeds (soaked overnight)
1 cup raw sunflower seeds (soaked overnight)
1/2 cup raw hazelnuts (soaked overnight)
1/4 cup flax seeds (soaked overnight)
1 cup chopped dates (soaked 2-4 hours--save water)
1/2 cup raisins (soaked 2-4 hours--save water)
2 apples, grated or chopped
2 tsp cinnamon
pinch of sea salt
dash of raw agave for extra sweetness

Process all ingredients except sprouted buckwheat in food processor, pulsing until coursely ground--it should still be chunky.  Add raisin and/or date soak water if needed to achieve desired consistency.  Pour into a mixing bowl and add the whole kernels of sprouted buckwheat.  Mix well.  Spread onto paraflex sheets in the dehydrator and dry at 105 degrees for 20-24 hours until crunchy consistency is established. Top with sliced bananas and fresh, raw almond milk.  Yummy!!!!

Adapted from Excalibur Dehydrator recipe book.  I added the sprouted buckwheat to this recipe and also the hazelnuts.  The buckwheat helps by diluting the nuts and giving it more complex carbohydrates as well as protein and many other wonderful nutrients!  The hazelnuts give it a very hearty flavor.  This is my favorite granola now :-)
