Simple raw food "cereal"

I'm sorry I don't have a picture of this one, my kids gobbled it up too fast!!  We all really loved this recipe and it's very easy.  One important piece of the recipe though, is to remember to soak whole buckwheat groats the night before, but it's so easy to do, just toss it into in a jar with a lid and enough water to cover the groats before you go to bed then when you wake up, it's ready for breakfast.  Grayson decided it tastes like apple pie, and he's absolutely right, so I am going to name it Apple Pie Porridge!  This is light and totally refreshing, plus it hits that sweet tooth so many kids (and adults) have.


- I used 1 shredded apple and 1 shredded pear, but you can use 2 of either, the apple is what gives it the tartness though.
- Use the pulp from making a nut milk (we make daily hemp milk so it was perfect and I don't like to waste the pulp anyway!)
- A handful of dried cranberries, goji berries or raisins
- Cinnamon
- 1/4 cup soaked, drained buckwheat groats (they become soft and are easier to digest this way)
- If you choose, you can add extra sweetener, but we choose not to, it's sweet enough with the fruit.  A good extra sweetener would be: honey, coconut nectar, stevia or xylitol.


Update, here is a picture!  We made it again and this time I remembered to snap a shot.  This one doesn't have the dried fruit in it.
