Those of us here in the US of A are celebrating our nation's independence day on Sunday. That means we get a nice, long holiday weekend, with no work on Monday! Hooray. Long weekends are perfect for leisurely breakfasts and relaxing mornings, and what could possibly be better for such a thing than a bowl of homemade granola soaked in homemade cultured oat milk, topped off with juicy fresh raspberries? With an extra day of vacation thrown in the mix, you might even have the time to try out a new recipe. So read on, my friend, and learn how to make an awesome breakfast perfect for a lazy holiday weekend.
For this granola, I used oats and brown rice flakes, pumpkin and hemp seeds, some shredded coconut, and spices. I sweetened it with apple juice and stevia. One cup of apple juice has about 35 grams of sugar, which is a lot if one were to drink it plain. But spread out over an entire BATCH of granola, it only contributes about 2 grams of sugar per 1/2 cup serving. Not bad, huh?
