Hi Rosa, you can slowly roast the nuts at very low heat (150°F/65°C) in an oven. You can learn more about this process here: https://www.foodmatters.com/article/should-you-activate-your-nuts-and-seeds. Hope this helps :) Enjoy! ~ Iris

I have made the granola and note it keeps for up to 2 weeks in an airtight container but consumer within 1 week for freshness. I did not realise it would make such a large quantity and I am the only person eating it. Is it possible to freeze some of this in small portions?

Hi Lisa, yes, you could definitely freeze so it lasts longer :) It can also last a little longer than 2 weeks in an airtight container, but would also depend on the temperature of your house, humidity etc., so freezing would be a great idea! :) Enjoy! ~ Iris

Hi everyone, I would like to know if the time to soak should be the same for all the nuts and seeds and if I can mix them in the same recipient when I’m soaking them or if it is recommended to do it separately. How long should I dehydrate them? Can I do it in the oven? With the lower temperature (40° C). Thank you in advance for your guidance!

Hello, Fernanda! You can pour 2 cups of your favorite nuts and seeds into a large bowl (it’s worthwhile making a larger batch in one go). Most nuts and seeds should be soaked for 7 to 12 hours, although almonds need a little longer at 12 to 14 hours. You can find out more about it through this article: https://www.foodmatters.com/article/should-you-activate-your-nuts-and-seeds :) ~ Andrea

Just made the granola and it is fabulous! I soaked and dehydrated my nuts. It took me awhile to round up all the stuff and get my act together but it is well worth it!

I’m sorry if I’m not understanding the directions clearly. This is what I think we do: We soak the nuts over night, then re-dry in the oven before processing in the recipe? I made mine in the damp state, it just took longer in the oven to “cook” the granola. Thank you!

Hi Catherine, I'm sorry for the confusion. Yes, you will need to activate the nuts first. You will need to soak the nuts overnight and dehydrate them using a dehydrator.
