NEW MOON GRANOLA



Contributor: Sophie Haber

Sophie Haber has created a nutrient-dense granola full of adaptogens, spices, fruits and seeds all carefully selected to support women during the Luteal and Menstrual phases of their cycle and to connect more deeply with New Moon energy...

A note from Sophie 

This recipe came out of being deeply inspired by one of my favourite books, Womancode by Alisa Vitti. This book brings so much awareness around supporting your cycle and how to nourish each of the phases that we go through as women. We have four phases to our cycle which are the follicular, ovulation, luteal, and menstrual. Throughout each phase, we have a substantial difference in how we go about caring for our bodies. We get to eat differently, exercise differently, and work differently if we listen. My intention for creating new recipes are now based on which phase I am currently in and what my body is asking for. Also, it is a fun and exciting way to connect with our phases as well as the moon phases because they are so deeply connected to each other! So below are some of the main ingredients I have used in the granola recipe and which phase they fall under.

Buckwheat - Menstrual phase

Cranberry- Menstrual phase

Banana- Menstrual phase

Cacao Nibs- Menstrual phase

Dates- Luteal phase

Raisin- Luteal phase

Sunflower seeds- Luteal phase

Flax seed- Luteal phase

 Ingredients

Wet: 

1 banana (very ripe)

4 medjool dates (soaked)

3 cups buckwheat (soaked)

1/3 cup coconut oil or ghee

 Dry: 

2 cups gf oats

1/2 cup raisins

1/2 cup cranberries (I recommend using the brand Honestly Cranberry)

1/4 cup chia seeds

1/4 cup cacao nibs

1/4 cup flax seeds

1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds

1/4 cup coconut shreds

 * Add salt to taste!

 

Potions

1 tbsp. Yin Power

1 tsp. Pearl

1 tsp. Ashwaghanda

1 tsp. Reishi

1 tbsp. cinnamon powder

1 tbsp. turmeric powder

1 tsp. cardamom powder

1 tbsp. dried chamomille

1 tbsp. fennel seeds

1/4 cup dried rose petals

 

 Method

Begin by preparing your buckwheat groats to soak

Place the three cups of buckwheat in a bowl with filtered water and let soak overnight

In the morning, strain the groats and give them a good rinse as they will be pretty slimy!

Next you will place your dates, banana, all your potions with the coconut oil in a food processor and blend until smooth

Then you will fold this mixture into the strained buckwheat, add the oats and the rest of the dry ingredients

Get your hands in the mix and gently fold in all the ingredients (you will want to use two baking trays and lay the granola flat onto each one) 

Bake at 350 degrees F for about 20 min and check your granola every ten minutes!

You will want to lightly shuffle the granola each time so that it does not burn

Once your mixture feels dry to touch pop it out of the oven and let it cool before placing it in your jars

This will make roughly around 5 cups of granola, or 1 months worth of granola


I invite you to get cozy, if it is a new moon then this may be the perfect time to create your very own Moon Granola! It is a beautiful way to save money, as now in days granola can be very expensive as well as filled with so much sugar!
