Activating buckwheat:

  1. Start the activation process by covering the 2 cups of buckwheat groats with water (‘Activating’ mimics natural process, releasing enzyme inhibitors so the seeds’ nutrients are more available to our bodies)
  2. Let soak overnight and in the morning, rinse and drain well. It will have slime on them so be sure to rinse it well.
  3. Fill again with water, letting soak for another 8 hours.
  4. Once completely sprouted, drain and rinse well again.

Making buckinis:

  1. Place activated buckwheat in a large bowl.
  2. Add all ingredients and mix very well, covering all the sprouted groats.
  3. Pour onto a parchment or silicone-lined baking tray and put into the oven on the lowest setting with the door slightly ajar. They should take about 8 hours to dehydrate. If you have a dehydrator, set it to 40 degrees and leave overnight.
  4. Once all is good and ready, use your deliciously chocolate caramelized buckinis in smoothies, yogurt, porridge, ice cream, salads, as a “cereal” and anything else you wish to have some crunch on.
