 Why soaked, you may ask? Improper preparation of grains can cause serious health problems, especially for people who are already suffering from food allergies.

Grains contain phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors that can block the absorption of of minerals in your intestinal tract. Soaking grains not only neutralizes phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors, but also increases the vitamin content of the grain, particularly the B vitamins.

You might think that soaking would be an extra hassle, but granola is worth it.  ; )
