My favorite raw Granola
Energy boosting granola breakfast.
Make your own raw granola. It is absolutely Amazing! Crunchy, flavourful, sweet, healthy and completely gluten free. Since I started doing my own granola I´m never going to eat store bought again. This is so much better. It has much more nutrition, less sugar and it tastes even better.
I use it on yogurt, with fruits and berries, by itself when I feel like a snack or as a great, healthy travelsnack.
Because of the sprouting in this recipe it will take a few days to make, but the total amount of preparation time is very little. You can skip the sprouting and soaking part if you want, but I hope you’ll give it a try. It´s easy once you get used to it and buckwheat sprouts has tremendous health benefits. Sprouts are one of the best superfoods!
I’m always baking my granola at the lowest temperature to preserver all the nutrition. It will take a little longer, but in return you will keep all the nutrition and natural enzymes that otherwise would be destroyed.
