I just got back from a holiday in Jamaica (a fabulous place, definitely go!), and brought a few ripe mangoes with me. So today's breakfast was again my buckwheat muesli, served with fresh ripe mango, Greek yogurt, and some pomegranate seeds. So, so good!
Muesli is usually made with oats, but my favorite version does not contain any oats. And buckwheat, at least in Estonia, where I live, is usually considered a savory food. But still, this mildly sweet and crunchy raw buckwheat muesli has been a favorite of mine for a long time now. I got the idea many years ago in India where I did my yoga teacher training and they served similar muesli with loads of fruits. It was delicious, so I felt the need to recreate the recipe and have been baking a tray every few months ever since. Sometimes I substitute the nuts and seeds, sometimes I don’t use raisins but dried apricot instead. It is a good recipe to use up all the odd ends of nuts and seeds that you have laying around in the bottom of your cupboard somewhere (we all have these, right?).
Raw Buckwheat Muesli Bowl
Cooking time: 45 minutes (+ soaking time)
Makes: 15-20 breakfasts
1 cup raw buckwheat
½ cup pumpkin or sunflower seeds
½ cup sesame seeds
½ cup nuts of your choice (I like pecans and cashews)
½ cups raisins
2 tbsp coconut oil
4 tbsp agave syrup
A sprinkle of salt
To serve, any fruits or berries are nice. I love it with fresh watermelon and strawberries.
Greek yogurt is nice for creaminess or coconut milk to keep it completely vegan.
1. Place the buckwheat, nuts, and seeds in cold water and soak them in the fridge overnight.
2. Preheat the oven to 300 and rinse and dry the buckwheat mixture as well as possible.
3. Mix in the rest of the ingredients and lay in a thin layer on a baking tray.
4. Bake for about 40-45 minutes mixing a few times.
5. Let cool completely and store in an airtight container.
6. Serve with fruits, berries yogurt, or anything else you fancy.
