Raw Cacao PB Crunch Cereal with Mocha Hemp Milk
I was going to make plain chocolate, but then decided to go a little decadent and make Chocolate PB crunch. I don't eat cereal in the morning, but more as a snack, so it would be perfect for after work! I made some chocolate hemp milk to go along with it as well (since I am loving hemp anything lately), and thought it would make for a decadent treat. But before it was removed from the blender, I decided to make it mocha, since I love the combination of peanut butter, coffee and chocolate (it may sound different but it is so good).

2 cups raw buckwheat groats
1/2 cup raw cocout nectar, agave nectar or maple syrup

Soak the buckwheat groats in filtered water for 30 minutes, then drain and rinse well. Place in a food processor along with coconut nectar, vanilla, cacao powder, peanut butter, and sea salt and process until smooth. Spread out onto a lined dehydrator sheet 1/8 inch thick. Place in the dehydrator and dry for about 6 hours at 115F degrees then score into small one inch squares. Place back in the dehydrator and continue to dry for another 18 hours (it will be about 24 hours total) until completely dry and crisp. Break apart and enjoy!
