Well, I did it! First try! I loved the results!

I bought a locally made raw cereal that was just sprouted, dehydrated buckwheat and goji berries. I found it too bitter, not to mention too expensive, but was inspired. I've really been missing my granola. In the future, I'll sprout my own buckwheat and I can buy the berries, so I'll relate this recipe in terms of doing so, even though I used a shortcut this time 'round.

1-1/2 c. sprouted buckwheat, dehydrated until crunchy
1-1/2 c. soaked and dehydrated nuts, (ala NT's crisly nuts) finely chopped (I used equal parts pecans and walnuts)
1 c. dried fruit (about 1/4 c. goji berries, 3/4 c. dried apple)
1/4 c. coconut flakes
2 tbsp. raw butter (could use coconut oil)
2 tbsp. raw honey (could use other maple syrup, agave nectar, barley malt syrup, etc.)
1/4 tsp. cinnamon

Toss all dry ingredients together. Place butter, honey and cinnamon in the bottom of a large bowl. Place that bowl in a bowl of hot tap water. You'll probably have to change out the hot water a couple of times. As the butter melts, stir to combine. The butter melts at around 92 degrees, and the honey gets progressively softer; so, when it's as soft as it seems like it's going to get while warm to the touch but not hot, pour in the dry ingredients and toss together quickly. When everything is evenly coated, spread on dehydrator sheet or cookie sheet. Dehydrate for about 24 hours. It'll still be slighly sticky to the touch, but decidedly crispy when tasted. It kept it's crunch even in goat's milk, at least for a short time - it was too yummy to linger over for long
Store in the refrigerator.
