I love this recipe! I’m just wondering if it’s possible to activate the nuts and seeds at the end by adding water or nut milk to the pre made granola and leaving to sit overnight before eating? Does this have the same effect?

Hi Clare, yes you can def. do that, however it won't have the same texture or taste the same! Perhaps try with a small sample first to see if you like it or not?
