Make a healthy granola recipe the Paleo way using nuts and seeds instead of grains.
Most people seem to only have time to grab a bowl of cereal on their way out the door these days, so why not learn to make a healthy granola recipe for a change.
Healthy cereals have had their ingredients treated in such a way as to keep as many nutrients as possible.
And these healthy cereals should also focus on deactivating anti-nutrients found in certain plant foods - to ensure healthy digestion.
It's important to note that paleo cereals that have been soaked or sprouted will help to release the unwanted anti-nutrients that will interfere with digestion.
I cannot stress this enough!
Plant foods contain a lot of anti-nutrients that must be deactivated in order for your body to receive nutrients such as protein and minerals from certain plant foods.
And soaking, sprouting, and low temperature cooking are the methods used to help produce a more nutrient dense and better quality granola.
Healthy cereals should also not contain any chemical toxins like pesticides and herbicides. It is always best to use organic nuts and seeds over non-organic.
I like the variety of ingredients used in this Paleo granola recipe. However, I would avoid using the microwave at all costs and choose a less harmful way of melting the coconut oil with the honey.
You can choose any combination of nuts and seeds - just make sure to choose a nice balance. You should also use raw healthy nuts that have had their anti-nutrients deactivated.
I like that she uses a lower temperature, to preserve as many nutrients as possible in this granola recipe. And as an alternative, you could add in the dried fruit to your Paleo granola recipe after you bake your granola.
This is the way that I would make a healthy granola recipe - using a dehydrator.
As a warning, these cereals taste so good that they can almost become addicting.
And to have a more balanced breakfast cereal I would use raw organic cow milk to go with my healthy cereal. Too much omega 6 fatty acids in nut milks!
Remember, Paleo cereals that actually contain live and available nutrients are the ones that will actually feed your body and get you off to a good start in the morning.
Breakfast is the "Most" important meal of the day - so they say!
