HOMEMADE COCONUT (SOAKED) GRANOLA
With the first signs of fall, I am immediately drawn into my kitchen. Roasting is one of the cooking styles I often associate with the weather changing and first signs of autumn.
This particular recipe is just delicious with late summer peaches and strawberries on top, or even the early signs of apple season.
Why soaked? When we soak our grains and nuts, it breaks down the enzyme inhibitors that tend to make digestion a bit more work on the body (great if you are healing your digestion) and in this particular recipe, the oats are soaked in a mix of yogurt and coconut oil which also begins the fermentation of the grain, adding in the potent probiotics that aid in digestion, boost the nutrient density of our food and build immunity for the coming season change.
The nuts in this particular recipe are also soaked and roasted (play with which nuts you want to include), which is optional but well worth the effort. You can find out how to soak and roast your nuts HERE.
The extra little bit of sea salt mixed with the sweet flavors of raw honey and cinnamon are such a favorite combination of mine. I hope you enjoy this yummy recipe as much as I do.
Try it with any variety of milk, or yogurt, or just as an on the go snack.
