For this recipe you will need: A high-speed blender & food dehydrator
4 cups untoasted buckwheat groats
2 cups young coconut meat
3/4 cup agave nectar
1/2 cup maple syrup powder
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon coarse sea salt
3/4 cup coconut butter/oil, warmed to liquefy
Soak the buckwheat in water to cover, plus 1 inch, and refrigerate overnight. Drain, rinse, and arrange in a single layer on dehydrator screens. Dehydrate for 24 hours, or until completely dry
In a high-speed blender, blend the coconut meat, agave nectar, maple powder, vanilla, and salt until completely smooth. While the blender is running, drizzle in the coconut butter/ oil and continue blending until emulsified.
Pour the mixture into a large bowl and add the buckwheat. Mix until well combined.
Spread the mixture evenly on a Teflex-lined tray, covering the full square. Even out the top and sides. Score into squares, making 5 cuts across each way (for 36 bars).
Dehydrate for about 24 hours. Invert the bars onto another mesh-lined tray and peel away the Teflex. Continue dehydrating for 2 to 4 more hours, or until the bars are completely dry.
Cut the bars into 36 squares. Store in the refrigerator.
