Ingredients and substitutions
This raw buckwheat breakfast muesli is high in fibre, satiating and absolutely delicious!
Raw, vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free. It’s also naturally sweet from the fruit so there's no real need for any added sugar.
It is really simple to create your own vegan muesli with your favourite breakfast ingredients. I love to use raw buckwheat groats instead of oats. They’re rich in nutrients and make a great alternative to many grains if you’re into raw foods.
Make this raw buckwheat breakfast recipe your own by creating your own blend of delectable nuts, fruits and seeds.
Nuts like pecans, hazelnuts, cashews or almonds. Or you could change the sultanas for another dried fruit like chopped dates, dried apricots or goji berries maybe. There are so many juicy, crispy, crunchy combinations you can create.
- Apple - fresh, crunchy and hydrating.
- Sultanas - for added sweetness.
- Raspberries - use fresh or frozen.
- Soaked raw buckwheat groats - check the packet says they’re raw and soak them in water overnight before using.
- Sunflower seeds - choose raw instead of roasted, without any added oils or flavours.
- Pumpkin seeds - pumpkin seeds are a terrific source of zinc and other minerals.
- Flax seeds - are an excellent source of vegan omega-3 and protein with many health benefits.
- Cinnamon - a sweet and warming spice that compliments sweet and savoury dishes. Especially yummy at breakfast!
Try to avoid the pre-milled varieties of seeds if you want to use the freshest ingredients. It’s easy to grind them yourself (just before serving) either using your blender or a coffee grinder.
When you’re out shopping for raw ingredients be sure to check the packaging. Buckwheat groats, for example come in two varieties, toasted and raw.
Toasted buckwheat is called Kasha and is a darker brown in colour than the raw version.
Can you eat raw buckwheat groats?
Yes, soaking the raw buckwheat groats overnight will soften them and make them much easier for our bodies to digest. Buckwheat groats can also be eaten sprouted. I prefer not to wait that long and use them soaked instead. They do make the water a gluey texture after soaking so be sure to rinse and drain them thoroughly before using.
Easy to meal prep?
Yes! If you like to meal prep then it’s really easy to store your preferred breakfast seed and dried fruit mix in a mason jar, for use during the week.
By building up a small pantry of raw ingredients makes it so easy to create your own vegan muesli mix made with your favourite nuts, seeds and dried fruits.
When you're using pre-soaked buckwheat in recipes remember to store the buckwheat groats separately from your seed mix. You'll need to soak the the groats in a bowl of water overnight then rinse and drain them thoroughly before using.
The smaller seeds like flax seeds, poppy, sesame and chia seeds do like to fall to the bottom of jars, so remember to give them a little shake or stir before using.
I find it simple to use measuring cups instead of scales to weigh everything.
- ½ cup flax seeds
- ½ cup sunflower seeds
- ½ cup pumpkin seeds
- ½ cup sultanas
