Do any of you use and like the Raw Food/Real World book? I'm thinking about getting it. How would you compare it to Alissa Cohen's Living on Live Food?
I've been eyeing this recipe for a while. I think I'm going to improvise and combine it with Carmella's buckwheat granola. I'm sure it's totally delicious as is, but I want to replace some of the nuts with buckwheat and play around with the spices (maybe add a vanilla bean, too).
I know this question is old, but ... Tess, I'm really glad I bought Raw Food Real World. I'm not totally raw, and I don't have Alissa's book to compare it to, but I find it really inspiring and fun to look at. I can't remember, but I think I've only made the maple buckwheat crispies or whatever they are (actually made the regular and carob in the same batch) -- they were really tasty. I think I wound up eating them more like a sweet cracker than as a cereal. I might just have to whip some up when I'm making this other granola.
