Black and Blueberry Maple Maca Crunch Cereal

 
I have been treating myself with a lot of fresh berries lately.  Eating them like candy, using them in desserts, salads, and even cereal.  Last weekend I decided to make a blackberry blueberry cereal.  I love those two berries with maple so that was what it was going to be! 

 
I kept the batter a bit chunky for crunch, and added some maca powder and maple for sweetness along with a touch of cinnamon.  I knew it was going to be good when I could not stop sampling the batter before it went into the dehydrator. 

 
Let me tell you, my kitchen smelled heavenly!  I made some cinnamon hemp milk, got myself a nice big bowl of the cereal, topped it with fresh berries, and dove right in! So heavenly, this is the type of breakfast (er...mid-afternoon snack), I look forward to!

Raw  Blueberry Maple Maca Crunch Cereal with Vanilla Cinnamon Hemp Milk
Black and Blueberry Maple Maca Crunch Cereal
Makes about 4 cups

 2 cups raw buckwheat groats
1 cup finely shredded dried coconut
1/4 cup maple syrup (or raw coconut nectar or agave nectar)
2 Tbsp maca powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 tsp maple extract
1/2 tsp sea salt
2 cups organic blueberries
1 cup organic blackberries

Soak the buckwheat groats in filtered water for 30 minutes, then drain and rinse well.  Place in a food processor along with coconut, maple syrup, maca, cinnamon, vanilla and maple extracts and sea salt and pulse to combine, still leaving chunks of buckwheat for texture, but making sure it is mixed well.  Remove from food processor and stir in berries.  Spread out onto a lined dehydrator sheet 1/8 inch thick.  Place in the dehydrator and dry for about 24 until completely dry and crisp.  Break apart into small pieces and enjoy!

      Could I omit the maple extract? I don't have any. Or what should I replace it with?

      You can leave it out, it just won't taste like maple.

      Could you use frozen blackberries and blueberries? That is what I have on hand. Thanks!
