in Raw & Vegetarian Recipes


As a healthy breakfast or a healthy, nutritious snack these raw cookies are full of nutrients and tasty.

They can be frozen and will last in freezer for months. They are easy to carry with you so if you need a breakfast or snack on the run they are very portable. I like to carry these cookies with me when doing errands or when I know I will be out for quite a few hours. If I get hungry I don’t have to try and find a place that has healthy, sugar and gluten free snacks.

Buckwheat Oat Breakfast Cookies

I eat fruit and a green smoothie for breakfast but I know that some people like something a little heavier. I make these because they are great for something extra before lunch when I get a bit hungry. They are also great with some flax oil and a bit of salt on them.

Buckwheat Oat Breakfast Cookies

  • 1 ½ C sprouted buckwheat
  • 3/4 C sprouted oat groats
  • 1/2 C ground flax
  • 1 C chopped dried figs (soaked)
  • 1/4 C pumpkin & sunflower seeds combined (soaked)
  • 3/4 C chopped soaked walnuts
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Himalayan salt

You can also use chopped dates instead of figs and also add raisins to the mixture. If you are not sure how to sprout buckwheat – send me a comment asking me how and I will be sure to post it.

  1. Combine sprouted buckwheat and oat grouts in food processor. Processes until broken down and well combined. Add remaining ingredients (except walnuts) and pulse until combined. I did also add the soak water from the dates. Add a bit at a time.
  2. Pour into bowl and scoop out mixture with large spoon and form into cookie shapes
  3. Place on teflex sheets on dehydrator trays
  4. Dehydrate 6 – 8 hours (over overnight or all day) and then take cookies off teflex sheets and put on mesh dehydrator tray.

In the pic above – the right tray has mainly the Raw Buckwheat Oat Breakfast cookies. The left tray has the Raw Nut & Seed Cookies.

Raw Nut & Seed Cookies

I love these cookies. They are jam-packed with fiber and goodness and if you like lots of texture you will love these.

Nut & Seed Cookies

  • 1 C soaked almonds
  • 1 C soaked walnuts
  • 3/4 C soaked sesame seeds (I combined black and white)
  • 3/4 C combined soaked pumpkin & sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 C ground flax
  • 1/2 banana
  • 5 dates (add more if you want it sweeter)
  • 1/4 C raisins
  • 1/4 C goji berries
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Himalayan salt

Soak nuts and seeds overnight or all day. (Try to soak them for at least 6 hours)

  1. Place almonds and walnuts in food processor and process until chopped fine.
  2. Add dates and process some more. Taste and see if sweet enough
  3. Add remaining ingredients and pulse until combined. Taste again and add more dates if you want them sweeter or if mixture is not sticky enough to form cookies. You can also add a bit of water if needed.

This is what the batter ended up looking like in the food processor. Lots of colors and texture!

Scoop up dough into a large spoon and place on dehydrator sheets and form into cookie (as pictured above).

Dehydrate for 8-9 hours (I did this overnight) then flip cookies and dehydrate for another approximately another 12 hours. Dehydrating time depends on how big and thick the cookies are and how hard you want them. The longer they dehydrate the crunchier they are.

I usually add raw flaked coconut to the above recipe also, but forgot this time.

I love these recipes because they change each time I make them. You can add ingredients you happen to have in your kitchen. You can use various nuts and seeds. Instead of buckwheat in the top recipe you can use wheatberries (which would be very good) and you don’t have to use Oat Groats.

As for measurements, I basically just estimated in the recipes above because that too does not really matter. You just don’t want the batter too runny.

I hope you give these a try because they are full of fiber, omega oils, protein and other nutrients and they are filling. Great for when you are hungry but don’t have time to stop and eat or are in your car or at work and you need something to munch on before a meal. Even after a workout or run they are great!
