Muffin mornings.

Muffins are definitely a favorite breakfast at my house. We’ve tried many varieties of muffins, from banana bread muffins to avocado mint muffins to dark chocolate berry muffins to savory pumpkin muffins  – and we love them all – but these soaked granola ones are probably my family’s favorites.

Despite our muffin-love, we rarely eat grains in my family (other than sourdough). Grains contain anti-nutrients, such as phytic acid and other enzyme inhibitors, making them hard for our bodies to digest. This can lead to allergies (hello gluten intolerance…) and all sorts of digestive issues. Soaking grains helps break them down, making them easier on our bodies to digest and increasing their vitamin content. (For more info on properly preparing grains, check out this WPF article.)

Since switching over to soaked grains, I can say without a doubt that I notice a difference in my digestion! And my family can tell the difference in theirs, as well. Remembering to properly prepare grains can be a little daunting at first (and annoying when you forget), but it really is worth it.
These Soaked Granola Muffins are very easy to prepare and versatile too! One batch of batter usually makes me a dozen muffins, a 9×13 inch pan of granola bars, and a dozen cookies! That’s breakfast, snack, and dessert all covered at once. Win for mom!
And if you need another reason to make these: they taste amazing with butter… But I guess there aren’t many things that don’t taste amazing with butter.

Traditionally prepared grains.

Interested in more soaked goodness? Here are a few other delicious recipes with traditionally prepared grains. They’re not just soaked recipes, there are a few gluten-free sourdough recipes, as well. My family does enjoy sourdough made from non-gluten-free grains, but I won’t include those here, don’t worry!

All these recipes are great for your digestion, and a sure way to have a happy tummy, too. 🙂
