Soaked Grain Muffins or Quick Bread

“This recipe is from Sue Gregg. I'm learning a little about soaking grains and beans to bring out their nutritionally quality and to cut the phytates. You may cut the recipe in half if you don't have a large enough blender (like a Vitamix). See add-ins in the directions. I used olive oil for the coconut and kefir and it worked fine.”
