Red, White, & Blue and Granola, too!




Sometimes, I really enjoy a bowl of "cereal".  This one, in the pic, is simply banana, blueberries, and raspberries, with sunflower seeds and nutmylk.  Very Yummy!

If you prefer a more traditional looking, and tasting, "cereal" give this granola a try:


coconut cream   3 to 4 tsp

maple syrup    1/4 cup (more or less to taste)

sea salt          pinch

cinnamon     1-2 TB


Handful or two of each:

apple   1/4, chopped small

mulberries

raisins

sunflower seeds


Bob’s Red Mill “7 grain” flakes  1/4 - 1/2 cup (optional, not raw)


Buckwheat groats  3/4 C, soaked 1 hour & sprouted for four hours.


Toss all, and dehydrate until dry.  (Or, eat as is!)



The bf likes this very much!  But, I found I liked this much better before it was dehydrated!  I have come to find that I am not overly fond of most dehydrated foods.  I much prefer fresh, like the one in the pic above!

Notes:  The coconut cream I used was by Tropical Traditions.  If you use Artisana "butter", or WIlderness Family "spread" (or some other) it may take a tad longer to dry.  That's a guess, as they both are considerably runnier than Tropical Traditions.


For those that celebrate this day, I hope you are having a fun, and safe 4th!


:~)

Looks really good. I think it would be awesome with a raw cobbler crust on top!! Wish I had some berries.

I actually soak my buckwheat groats overnight, sometimes for days even. They get so soft and absorb so much water.

I used to eat a lot of my own home-made raw granola, but then I realized that so much nut milk was not so great for me. Of course, I was having three bowls of the stuff a day... lol!

Oh, it *is* delicious Simply Life! :) Raw cobbler crust sounds great, Elizabeth! Welcome, Gabriele (albeit incredibly overdue!)

Phoenix Muse, I find that sometimes I do really well on *lots* of nutmylk for a spell, and then I simply don't crave it any more. I tend to listen to my body now...and it speaks loud and clear!

Oh, please *do* celebrate, Amy!! 39 or 40, no matter! Welcome, and thanks for the push to post more... I'll try to do better here out!
