How to sprout buckwheat? Soak the buckwheat seeds in plenty of cold water for 15-20 minutes. Rinse them off, drain and leave the seeds in a strainer. Place the strainer in a bowl and put on a tea towel. Depending on the humidity it’s going to take 24-48 hours for the sprouts to develop their little “tails” or even up to 3 days if the room temperature is cool. Twice a day, rinse them off.

See a 4-minute video tutorial on how to sprout buckwheat by Russel James – The Raw Chef – here. For this purpose, it’s enough to sprout the buckwheat just for 24 hours. That’s when you should see those small cute “tails” developing. Dry the sprouted buckwheat before using for this chocolate. If you don’t own a food dehydrator, you can place sprouted buckwheat in the oven (spread on a baking sheet), 40°C=100°F for as long as they are dry. Just keep the oven door slightly open to remove the developing moisture.

For this purpose, it’s enough to sprout the buckwheat about 24 hours or when you see those small “tails” developing. Dry the sprouted buckwheat before using for this chocolate. If you don’t own a food dehydrator, you can place sprouted buckwheat in the oven (spread on a baking sheet), 40°C=100°F for as long as they are dry.
