I have yet to find a truly suitable replacement. There just isn't much out there that fills the same spot in my
Eli's favourite thing is a creation of mine which I call Blueberry Buckwheat Crackers. They are easy to make and nut free, which means we can send them with him to the YMCA and church without worrying. He eats them most often as a cracker, but also loves to break them up into some fresh almond milk for breakfast. For those interested, here's my recipe:
Blueberry Buckwheat Crackers
2 cups of buckweat groats, soaked overnight - be sure to rinse thoroughly as they get really starchy
1/2 maple syrup
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
2 cups blueberries (frozen is fine)
2. Divide onto lined dehydrator trays and spread to 1/8 inch thick. Dehydrate until the top is dry to the touch (8ish hours) and then flip over and peel off the liner. Dehydrate for a few more hours until they are totally dry.
3. Break into pieces and store in a large zip lock bag.
The original recipe from Raw Food Real World is for cinnimon and chocolate crispies. I've tried them several different ways, but Eli likes my blueberry ones best, so we stick with those. Like I've said before, the great thing about raw food cooking is that you can change it around really easy, so if you don't like blueberries you can use mango, or sun dried tomatoes, or anything else you think sounds yummy. Enjoy!
