  • 1.5 cups buckwheat
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 apple; diced
  • 1 cup dates + 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup hemp seed
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Soak the buckwheat for 2 hours, rinse and drain.
  • Either use them right away, or continue to rinse and drain morning and night, until they sprout little tails; aprox. 2 days
  • De-pit the dates and blend them together with water until it forms a date paste.
  • Slice and dice the apple.
  • Mix all of the ingredients together.
  • Spread the mixture out evenly on a dehydrator sheet about an inch thick.
  • Dehydrate at 165F for 1 hour, flip onto the ventilated dehydrator tray, and continue to dehydrate at 115F until dry; aprox. 3 hours.


Update: These granola bars take less time to dehydrate in the winter when the air is dry. In the summer, when the air is humid, they could take up to 24 hours to dry.
Store granola in an airtight container in a cool dry place for up to a month.
You can use an oven at it's lowest temperature with the door cracked open. Times vary.
