I love granola. Always have. I love cold milk in a bowl with granola. I love granola on top of plain yogurt…throw in some fresh fruit, or a nice dollop of jam…mmm.
I have had a hard time making my own granola and really liking it. Partly because of the lack of crispness, and partly because of the lack of clusters. Then I read online that the clusters you get in store versions can be done at home, the key is flour. I found a recipe that added oat flour, but it wasn’t a soaked recipe and I prefer to soak my grains, nuts and seeds to neutralize the phytic acid, making them more digestible.
Then I found a recipe that did both, so I didn’t need to experiment! Istra and I made a batch this morning, and I love it! The flavor is good, the crispness was achieved and it clusters. So great. I know what I’m having for breakfast…or a snack tonight.
