One of the more popular articles on this blog is No Granola is Good Granola which outlines why granola or muesli made with rolled oats or other grains is not only very indigestible but potentially harming your long term gut health – possibly even contributing to autoimmune disease like allergies or worse. Even homemade granola made with soaked or sprouted oats is not a very digestible choice at all which initially can come as a shock to granola lovers who thought it was a healthfood.
I don’t like to point out problems without also providing a solution if possible. For you granola fans out there, here is a grain free granola recipe from San Diego Weston A. Price Chapter Leader Kim Schuette and founder of BioDynamic Wellness and GAPSInfo.com that should satisfy that hankering for a bowl of granola without compromising your digestive function.
