Do you ever miss sneaking in a bowl of your childhood favorite, sugared, cereal?! I know I do from time to time. As I walk down the cereal isle at the grocery, I often stop at various cereals that take me back in time. “Time Travel! Isle 2!”
I am not tempted to buy those high sugared cereals but I won’t deny that they sound good! Well, for those of you who want to revisit a childhood memory with me, make these Raw Buckwheat Cacao Pops, dish up a big bowl with your favorite nut milk, snuggle up on the couch and turn on the cartoon channel!

One of the greatest joys when creating raw food recipes is experimenting with different ingredients… a practice that I highly encourage. Daily I get questions regarding substitutions. Of course we all might have different dietary needs and tastes which could necessitate altering a recipe. I love to share with you what I create for myself, my husband, friends and family. I spend a lot of time selecting the right ingredients with a particular goal in mind, looking to build a certain flavor and texture.
So as you experiment with substitutions, remember they are what they sound like, they are substitutes for the preferred item. Generally they are not going to behave, taste, or have the same texture as the suggested ingredient. Some may work, and others may not and I can’t promise what the results will be unless I’ve tried them myself. So have fun, don’t be afraid, and remember, substituting is how I discovered many of my unique dishes.
FDA (Food Determining Association) conducted a test at Nouveau Raw Kitchens, The Soggy Cereal Test. The subject: Crunchy Peanut Butter and Buckwheat Cereal Squares. Object: to see how long this raw cereal could stand up to almond milk before getting soggy. No animals were harmed in this test. Results posted below.
Step 1 ~ Set timer for 10 minutes.
Step 2 ~ Add nut milk.
Step 3 ~ 10 minutes in… this bite still had good crunch into it.
Step 4 ~ 20 minutes into the test… pieces are breaking up but the buckwheat
I know this is a test, but I am really enjoying this process!
Step 5 ~ 30 minutes into the test and the last bite was a little soft but not soggy.
This concludes today’s test. It’s a success!
