Raw Granola is my new favorite thing to make lately… other than Tofu Tacos and Tortillas, or Cookies! I never seem to make enough for a whole week, though. This latest batch is my favorite by far. It’s GOT to be the addition of dates. Yummy, yummy dates!Hardcore Granola 2 C oats* 1 C chia* seeds 1 C flax* seeds 1 C raw pumpkin* seeds 1/2 C cacao* nibs 1 C raw pecans* 1 C raw almonds* 1 C dried cranberries* 1 C chopped dates* 1/2 C maple* syrup 1/2 C water 1 Tbsp cinnamon* * = Organic
∴ Add your oats, seeds, nibs, nuts, fruit, syrup, water and cinnamon to a bowl. Mix well. If it seems too dry, you can add a little more (couple Tbsp – 1/2 C) water. The chia seeds especially will absorb any excess. Press it all into a 9×13 pan and let it chill in the fridge to set. Break it all up and store in a container with a lid that fits decently-well. Store it in the fridge. Super-good with milk of your choosing, over Chia Pudding, as is, or with fresh fruit.
I had some today with sliced strawberries and bananas. It was awesome!
