This is by far my best and favorite batch of granola. After 12 hours in a dehydrator I was able to obtain the most ideal cluster and crunch. I love how evenly toasted it is and not flash cooked like in an oven. The low temperatures save the nutritional value and importantly the enzymes. Another plus of dehydrated foods is that it inhibits the growth of bacteria by removing the water content at a suitable temperature. What that means? Dehydrated food lasts longer.
