Legendary Granola

Published October 19, 2011 by Polana Fowdrey

Whilst I’m quite happy with a smoothie or some kefir for breakfast, Mr H has a very physical job and requires something a bit more substantial. In an attempt to alleviate his mid-morning slump, I devised this granola – perfect for breakfast, but great any other time of day too!

Ingredients:

2 tbs sunflower seeds

2 tbs hulled hemp seeds

2 tbs pumpkin seeds

½ cup chopped nuts or dried nut pulp

1 cup rolled oats

½ cup chopped unsulphured apricots

½ cup raisins

2 tbs agave nectar, maple syrup or raw honey

2 tsp cold-pressed oil

2 cup water

1 tbs sprouted flax powder

1 tsp mesquite or any other superfood powder

 To Make It:

Use 1 cup of water to soak the seeds for 2 hours.

Use the other cup of water to soak the dried fruits for 1/2 hour.

Drain seeds and nuts and mix together in a bowl

Add all the other ingredients, flax seed powder last of all and mix everything thoroughly.

Spread the mixture onto a dehydrator tray with a non-stick sheet on top.

Dry at 115°F for 12 hours

When the mixture is quite dry, break it up into chunks with your fingers.

Serve with nut milk and fresh fruit.

Makes 2-4 servings.

Double-up the quantities for larger amounts. This granola can be kept in an air-tight container for up to a month if it is completely dried out.
