Ever soaked or sprouted your grains, nuts, or seeds? Here's a great morning cereal that is bursting with life energy, enzymes, protein, and complex carbs. The process of soaking releases enzyme inhibitors in the nuts, while allowing the seeds and grains to begin the germination process, reawakening it's vital life energy force. Soaking also makes your seeds/nuts/grains more easily digestible. At least once a week allow this cereal to replace your oatmeal, quinoa, boxed cereal flakes, or whatever it is you're already eating. You'll probably love it and it's vital energy so much that you will have it more than that, but it takes 30 days to break/make a habit...so we'll start slow.
It will take a small amount of prep work...ah ah ah, now don't go bypassing the rest of this entry just cuz i said 'it'll take prep work' - it's easy. Plus the recipe provides you with days worth of nourishment, so you don't have to do much later. You can start now, will only take you a couple minutes...and then finish tomorrow. The prep work is what makes it so healthy, alive, and brimming with life energy.

I scoured the web and to my dismay, there was not a chocolate granola recipe to be found. So, I adapted this one from the ingredients list on a Kaia Foods bag of cacao bliss crunchies. Be careful -- this is deliciously dangerous even before it makes it into the dehydrator. My roommate and I had to cut ourselves off before we ate the whole batch straight from the bowl. In the morning, I plan to have this with hazelnut milk, sliced bananas, and raspberries. And then I will need a cold shower. I will try to remember to put up a picture when this is all ready, but really, do you need any more convincing that this recipe will rock your socks?
This was inspired by a raw granola that I bought in my old town, made locally there. I can not remember the name or anything. But this recipe makes a ton of cereal, so feel free to scale it back a bit.
This recipe is by Richard Salome. I substituted raw buckwheat in place of raw barley because of gluten allergies. I folded in the raisins and apples instead of adding them to the blender (trust me, ft’s much better this way), and I also omitted the blanching of the almonds…why do that? They’re fine without adding hot water… JUST KEEP IT RAW! ;-)
P.S. MY CHEAP GOOD FOR NOTHING $10 CAMERA THAT I GOT FROM WALGREEN’S TOOK A LOUSY PICTURE OF THIS DISH, WHICH I COULDN’T EVEN UPLOAD, SO I UPLOADED THIS PHOTO OF SOME BUCKWHEAT OFF OF GOOGLE IMAGES. BUT THIS DISH REALLY DOES LOOK APPETIZING WHEN YOU MAKE IT.
