Besides butter, boxed cereal is probably my favorite food. It’s delicious as a snack or meal, for breakfast or dinner! But it’s also really bad for you–even the kind you get at your local co-op. Not only are they usually packed with sugar (even the natural kind) but the extrusion process by which they make the little cereal shapes destroys all the vitamins and nutrients. Sucky.
So what’s a cereal lover to do? Ditch the Alphabits and make her own! This is my first attempt, but won’t be my last (unless I die). Made with buckwheat and peanut butter, it’s both delicate and dense. This cereal is packed with nutrients and is a great way to start the day (or end it!).
- 1 cup of whole buckwheat groats, soaked and dehydrated
- 1/2 cup of 100% pure peanut butter
- 4 tablespoons of dextrose or pure maple sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon of gray sea salt
Mix together all ingredients.
Dehydrate at 118˚ for 12-24 hours, occasionally breaking up the larger clumps.
