200g dry whole wheat kernels
3 tbsp poppy seeds
3-4 tbsp splenda (adjust to taste)
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp vanilla extract
Prepare poppy seeds and raisins: In the meantime, prepare poppy seeds and raisins. Soak raisins for around one hour in 200 ml of warm water. Then strain them well. Put aside. Reserve water. Put the poppy seeds into a saucepan, add a few cups of boiling water and cook until soft. The poppy seeds are cooked when you can easily mash the seeds with your fingers. Then grind poppy seeds in a blender with a bit of the water. Put aside. You can also cook poppy seeds in milk.
Take a large bowl. Place wheat, poppy seeds, raisins, honey with vanilla. Mix everything very well. Taste. If the desert is too dry, add a bit of raisins water. If it is not sweet enough, add more splenda, according to your taste. Put overnight into the fridge.
