A fully energetic start of the day !
=> Soaking the grains and nuts is very important as it will suppress enzyme inhibitors and it will activate all the dormants nutrients.
A raw granola that does this is a highly nutritious and a great source of digestive enzymes
The grains will give you all the energy to start your day, as well as the nutrients, fatty acids ,vitamins and minerals…
My dream of a breakfast:
Homemade granola with almond/coconut/hemp mylk and fresh fruits ( kiwi, strawberries banana)
Homemade granola :
1 cup of rolled oats
1/4 cup of almonds/ hazelnuts
1/4 cup of pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds
1/4 cup of buckwheat
2 T of almond butter
2 T of maple syrup
2T of melted coconut oil
1 t of cinnamon
Dried sultanas/ cranberries/ coconut flakes/goji berries/ raw cacao nibs
Place the nuts in a food processor and pulse a few times to get chunks.
In a bowl mix the almond butter with the syrup, coconut oil, cinnamon and salt. Then add all the remaining ingredients.
The goji berries and cacao nibs will give you the extra boost of energy.
Raw cacao is full of magnesium, iron, vitamins …
Goji berries are high in iron, in protein, antioxydants, vitamins and 18 amino acids !!!
- If you are going for a raw granola the you need to dehydrate it ie not « to cook it » over 48°C…
If you have a dehydrator : line up a tray with a Teflex shhet, spray the mixture and dehydrate for 6 hours at 45°C
- If you are going for a traditional granola : preheat your oven at 150°, line up a baking tray with cooking paper and cook for 15-20 minutes . It has to be golden Brown.
Let it cool down and break into pieces and store in an airtight container.
