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!
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.
