Ingredients

  • 6 cups oats not quick oats! If you are gluten free be sure your oats say gluten free on them likeTHESE
  • 2 cups quinoa I get the linked brand at Costco - the regular color or the red quinoawork fine - I used the red this time!
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • 1 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1/2 cup melted friendly fat butter, coconut oil, avocado oil
  • 1/3 cup raw honey If your kids are used to a much sweeter cereal go ahead and double this. I get mine from a local farmer. If you don't have access THIS is a good brand.
  • 1 TB vanilla extract
  • 4-5 cups strawberries chopped. (I didn't take the time to slice them nicely - I just pulsed them in my food processor!)

Instructions

  • Put the oats, quinoa, and lemon juice in a large mixing bowl. Add water to cover the grains, combine, and let the mixture soak 8-12 hours. This soaking process breaks down phytic acid in the grain, makes it easier to digest, and makes the nutrients more available to absorb!
  • After the grains have soaked, drain the liquid and return to the mixing bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and combine.
  • Spread onto your dehydrator trays and dehydrate at 135 degrees overnight (Or over the course of a day. I tend to soak during the day and dehydrate overnight). If you are using an oven you can set your oven at the lowest heat and stir throughout the day - or you can go at a higher temp and bake it off, again stirring often until it dries out.
  • Once the granola is dried out you can crumble it into containers for storage.
