Who needs Coco Crispies when you can have these delicious Cacao Crispies made from buckwheat groats? Buckwheat lowers blood glucose and insulin responses, softening the bodies reaction to that natural sweetener maple. Read more about buckwheat’s health benefits here. You could use raw honey as the sweetener instead, but I have a one year old son that I suspected might want to try these tasty treats, so I opted for maple. Top Cacao Crispies with fresh nut milk or enjoy them as a crunchy chocolate snack.
HINT: Make a double batch! Leave some in clusters for raw food to-go snacks!
In a mixing bowl combine maple or honey with cacao powder. Toss freshly rinsed oat groats in the mixture. Transfer to an Excaliber dehydrator sheet with a Teflex liner. Dehydrate two hours, flip & dehydrate until crispy. Store in an airtight container. This makes a small batch which is great to test the flavor to see if you enjoy them. If they are a hit in your house, you can make much larger batches because the store well. Be sure to use a container with a strong seal to keep the air out.
