Do you like the flavor of strawberries? I do and if you are like me, you will love these raw vegan strawberry granola clusters. They are a burst of crunchy strawberry goodness! They make a perfect
 snack as is, or you can enjoy them with almond milk or other nut and seed milks. The clusters will make a great topping on anything that would go well with the strawberry flavor, like my banana ice cream, and acai bowl. It’s easy to prepare, and it will keep for a long time. A great make ahead recipe that will allow you to have some homemade raw strawberry granola anytime you please!

Let’s get cracking! If you own a dehydrator, soak the buckwheat groats and sunflower seed for 12 hours. Rinse well and drain, then dry them in the dehydrator at 115 ℉ (46℃) for about 12-18 hours until completely dry. If I have some extra time, I usually like sprouting the seeds to increase their nutritional value.

Add the buckwheat groats, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, flax seeds, shredded coconut, and salt into a bowl and mix well.

Next, blend up the strawberries, maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla extract in a blender until it becomes a smooth strawberry sauce.

Pour it over the granola mix and mix until well combined. The mixture should turn into a pretty pink color!

Next, we’ll make some dried strawberries. Thinly slice the strawberries into about 1/8″ thickness and lay them out on the dehydrator tray lined with a mesh sheet. Dehydrate on 115 ℉ (46℃) for about 12 hours until completely dry.

Once the surface of the strawberry granola dries, it’s time to flip the granola. Place a mesh sheet on top of the tray with the granola, then place another tray on top. Hold the 2 trays together on both sides with both hands, and flip them upside down. Take off the top tray and mesh sheet and carefully peel off the silicone sheet from the granola. Put the tray back into the dehydrator and dry for another 10 hours or so until completely dry.
