How to Sprout Buckwheat Groats, and Turn them into Buck Crunchies!
Buck crunchies are sprouted buckwheat groats that have been dehydrated.
Buck crunchies are great additions to various recipes: When making chocolate, add some in that you’ve got a nestle crunch. I also use them in my low sugar, protein bars, and oftem mix them with cacao nibs, pumpkins seeds, and a few goji berries for a great snack treat.
Buck Crunchie Recipe
Soak and sprout: begin by placing a cup or more buckwheat groats in a glass jar, cover with water and allow to soak for 4-8 hours.
Place in Colander: Pour entire contents of glass jar in a colander and rinse well.
Sprout Buckwheat Groats: Leave groats in colander and allow to sprout … usually takes a couple days. I cover colander with a paper or kitchen towel. I will usually rinse once during this phase.
Dehydrate: I usually remove some of the sprouted buckwheat groats and place in a jar and use over salads or in non dairy yogurt. The remaining I spread on a teflex dehydrator sheet and dehydrate at 108-110 degrees for approximately 6-8 hours, or until crunchy. Purchase a dehydrator.
Storage: I Store in a glass container in my pantry … they store for quite some time, if they eaten up rather quickly!
