Well guess who got creative in the kitchen........ me! I combined a few recipes to come up with some very yummy, easy, Raw Granola:)~ This is my favorite Raw concoction. I played with it for awhile and the final product is crisp, crunchy and super yummy! It requires a little bit of prep before hand but you'll be glad you waited because it's delicious! I soaked then dehydrated all of my nuts before I combined the mixture. This required it to be in the dehydrator for less time for the final product.
1/2 cup sunflower seeds, soaked, drained and dried
3 cups of almonds, walnuts or pecans or a mix of all to equal 3 cups, soaked, drained and dried
2/3 cup buckwheat groats, soaked and sprouted then air dried a bit on the counter
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
1/3 cup plus 1 Tbsp. Agave Nectar
3 Tbsp. coconut oil warmed to liquid in warm water or in the sun
1 tsp. natural vanilla extract (Frontier)
1/4 tsp. natural almond extract (Frontier)
3/4 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
Pulse the sunflower seeds, and almonds, walnuts or pecans 10 times in food processor fitted with the "s" blade. Add the buckwheat groats, coconut, and all of the binding ingredients then pulse just until it comes together. If you like it chunkier, pulse the dry ingredients then transfer to a bowl and stir in the binding ingredients.
Spread in a thin layer on a Teflex sheet that has been placed on a mesh screen in your dehydrator. Dehydrate at 105-110 for about 6 hours then transfer to the mesh screen until crispy, about 4 more hours or so.
