Sprouting Grains

I want to make sprouted granola and came upon this video for sprouting grains. They are showing the sprouting of buckwheat and oats, among other things.

The recipe is for making granola in a dehyrator, which I do not have. I will try dehydrating the granola in a hot car window on a cookie sheet if the weather co-operates. This is one of the days I really miss the HOT California sun!

Sprouted Grain Granola

Whole grains - buckwheat, millet, amaranth, quinoa or oats.
Seeds - sesame, flax, pumpkin.
Nuts, dried fruits including coconut, or fresh diced berries (do not soak).
Oil, sea salt, vanilla, and maple syrup or sucanat.

Sprout grains for 2 days. Soak any seeds you will be using for a few hours. Soak dried fruit for about 30 minutes.

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl, stirring well with a spoon. Dehydrate until crunchy. (about 12 - 14 hours)
