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. For more information about this process, you may check this article here: http://www.foodmatters.com/article/should-you-activate-your-nuts-and-seeds.

Sorry, I'm confused... Do you have to dehydrate the nuts before you add the wet ingredients and then bake them? Please clarify. Thanks!

Hello Krista, the almonds were activated before adding the wet ingredients. You may activate your pumpkin and sunflower seeds as well :)

If the water the nuts are soaked in isn’t rinsed off is the phytic acid still present or is the baking enough to clear it? Thanks

Hi Anna! All grains contain phytic acid in the outer layer or bran. We recommend that you soak them in water, salt water, or a warm water mixture with something acidic like yogurt, whey or lemon juice. after this, you may rinse and drain. But if you choose to try consuming anything in the soaked state, make little batches and store them in the refrigerator. Usually, everything that is soaked is dried in a dehydrator or oven on the lowest possible setting for 24 – 48 hours to remove all moisture. ~ Jasmin
