ok, i made a strawberry version of the cocopuffs...sorta.
these are SO SO good. 3 year old approved ;)
the mixture was too soupy to roll into balls, maybe next time i will use a pastry bag & make dots or something.
it is purely aesthetic though.
this is approxamate but i think pretty close.
3/4 C/ dried almond pulp(BEFORE grinding down to flour,meaning it was lumpy & fluffy)
1/2 C.Buckwheat soaked for 1 hr.
approx 1 C. smallish WHOLE strawberries (measured before cutting up)
1/2 C. agave
1 t. salt
1 t. vanilla
pulse all in processor until desired consistancy....i made it smooth but with a bit of whole buckwheat left.
spread on teflex sheet & dehydrate at 115 until it can be flipped off the teflex.
all total i think it was in there about 10 hours.
i broke it up into pieces after it was flipped & in there another hour or 2.
My 3 year old was stealing it off the tray long before it was done as i was flipping & breaking it up...LOL

You folks are so creative!
What a great idea!

Okay, cereal army, it's time for some major inspiration...
I'm gonna try my hand at a few, but let's see how many we can create!

LOL Andypdx you make me laugh. I am going to make a Booberry version of the coco puffs first. Apple jacks should be easy, apple, cinnamon, agave and buckwheat.
Fruity pebbles would be all versions of coco puffs in one box
Most of those cereals we dont even have in Canada. Did you know they pulled Frankenberry and Booberry off the shelves here about 10 years ago? My 2 most favorite cereals ever...

A while back, the first time I ever made the buckwheat cocoa crispies (and the maple ones) I also did a "Fruity Pebbles" variation similar to what you did - I didn't use any almond pulp but I just used the recipe from the book (Raw Food Real World) and I seperated into three small batches...first batch I blended strawberry in it, second batch I used lemon juice and lemon zest, third batch I blended orange juice and orange zest. I dried each batch on seperate trays and once done, broke them all up in one bag and it was really good. Had that "fruity pebbles/froot loops" kinda thing going on. I'd like to play around with it more, though using something other than buckwheat.

ooh,boo berry....i was thinking the same thing the other day.
fruity pebbles....lemon...ohh, raspberry! Rawkinlocs what a great idea!!!
i just wish i could shape em better.
but i guess it is easier to eat as a finger food if they are bigger.

Yow-zah Andypdx! My eyes hurt from opening that link! Good golly!!! It's been soooooo long since I've eaten any of that garbage that even the raw version probably wouldn't taste good. Raw not taste good? What's wrong with me????

This thread is hilarious!!!
Apparently Trix is NOT just for kids!
Anybody got a leg up on Frosted Flakes?

blended corn and agave...make teeny thin 'chips' with a piping bag. Add more agave for a 'frosted flakes' kind of taste, or brush honey on top

I took 1/3 cup of cashew nuts and a couple of spoonfuls of fine shredded coconut and blended it up and added sliced strawberries, poured this into a bowl and pour on agave syrup over it.
It was the best breakfast and the easiest i've ever had.
I'm going to have some more today:D
