Buckwheat Berry Granola

Our Buckwheat Berry Granola is delicious, nutritious, gluten-free – simply berry 😉

BUCKWHEAT tastes like a grain, but is a knotweed, like sorrel. It’s gluten-free and richer in high-quality nutrients than your usual grains. It contains slightly less protein than wheat, for example, but provides all eight essential amino acids in a more favorable amino acid ratio, thus serving to meet protein needs more optimally. The absolute optimum is in germinated buckwheat! Through the germination process, the seed comes to life – thereby increasing the nutrient content many times over and the proteins become easier to digest. Germinated buckwheat is significantly lower in starch and has an alkaline effect.

If you like, you can add hemp seeds to enrich this granola.

HEMP SEEDS are rich in protein and have all 8 essential amino acids. Compared with other plant foods, hemp seeds contain a high content of B vitamins – especially B1 and B2 and B3 (niacin), vitamin E, calcium, magnesium, potassium, ironand valuable omega-3 fatty acids.

Let’s get to the recipe!


for about 2 pounds


  • 2 cups buckwheat
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup hemp seeds
  • 2 cups frozen raspberries or blueberries
  • 1 cup raisins


  1. Soak buckwheat and sunflower seeds separately in water overnight, drain and rinse in the morning. Leave buckwheat and sunflower seeds to sprout in large sieves throughout the day. Small spikes show that the germination process has been initiated.
  2. Puree defrosted berries with raisins in a blender, and add the germinated and rinsed seeds.
  3. Put all ingredients in a large bowl, mix well and spread out on drying foil. Dry in a dehydrator for approx. 8-12 hours at 105º F. Store in an airtight jar.

In the summer, you can also dry the granola outside in the sun or shade, depending on the temperature!

Of course this recipe can be modified. The basis is the buckwheat sprouts and berries. Vary with sunflower or hemp seeds or add nuts of your choice.

There are no limits to your imagination here….

We especially recommend the “Breakfast Granola” recipe, with the delicious apple, coconut and cinnamon flavor!
