      No – you can definitely make a whole batch of it and it’ll stay fresh in an airtight container for a week or so!

    Could you use oats instead of….groats? It’s basically the same word anyways.

      Ha! Yep, same word(ish) but I don’t think oats will work for this recipe :)

    I think I’m going to try…
    I always have my granola with oats and nuts at breakfast but this recipe also seems very tasty :-)
    Do you think I can mix it with some yogurt and fresh fruit? I’m vegetarian but not vegan, and I love my yogurt in the morning!

    Thank you!

    this looks amazing. i love blending my groats and making raw buckwheat flour but i’ve tried buckwheat “porridge” before and wasn’t really a fan. i will now try them again in this crispy raw granola and i’m sure they’ll be great! thanks laura!

    Can you also make this recipe with kasha?

    • laura

      I’m actually not familiar with kasha, but I just looked it up and it looks like it’s just roasted buckwheat. I’m not sure if it’ll work (the soaking part might not work because they’ve already been roasted) but it’s worth a shot!

    […] her chocolate pudding with avocado this summer, and it was a big hit around here. I also made her buckwheat breakfast cereal, which I love and highly recommend as a cereal alternative. Remember to buy raw or hulled […]

    Ok im a raw vegan and the cereal is no longer raw if you cook, bake it. After 118 degrees you destroy nutrients so you should reword this to state raw ingredients however its not a raw meal.

      And the author was correct, its buckwheat groats, not oats.

    @Jack Hughes – She states in the video that you can dehydrate these recipes, but wanted to inform it was versatile, for both ends of the spectrum. I personally love that it is accessible to any dietary lifestyle. You are such an awesome person Laura, rock on! You’re very personable and playful which makes you feel more like a friend than “just” a youtube host or blogger. Thanks for that! This recipe is delish!

    Hey Laura, this recipe looks really awesome and I can’t wait to try it. I was just wondering, is it possible to not add the stevia? Or would that mess with what it’s meant to taste like?

    This is what a cereal should be, healthy and and definitely flavorful.
