    Gingerbread Men
    Makes 15-18 cookies
    1 cup sprouted/soaked buckwheat, soak buckwheat for 1/2 hour, rinse & drain
    1 apple, diced (skins on is fine)
    1/2 cup pecans
    1/3 cup maple syrup of agave (or a little more if you like it real sweet)
    1 Tbs grated ginger (or a little more if you like it real gingery)
    1/4 tsp cinnamon
    a pinch or 2 sea salt
    Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor & blend until smooth & creamy.  Spread onto a teflex sheet (a little more than an 1/8 inch thick) & dehydrate at 110 for 8-9 hours.  Remove from dehydrator & peel the teflex sheet off of the ginger bread.  Place the gingerbread on a cutting board.  With your cookie cutter, cut out your gingerbread men & place them back on the dehydrator sheet and dehydrate for another 6-8 hours.  Chill cookies & then ice them!

    icing:
    1/2 cup cashews
    2-3 Tbs maple syrup or agave
    2 Tbs coconut oil
    1/2 cup water (or a little more as needed)
    pinch sea salt
    Blend ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth & creamy.  Pour into a ziplock baggie & chill in the refrigerator.  Once chilled, cut the tip of off a corner of the baggie & squeeze icing out & decorate cookies.  EAT UP!

    This recipe works great for a gingerbread house too … just dehydrate it a little longer to get it sturdier! Decorate with raw chocolates, raspberries, blueberries & grapes & then eat up!
