Raw Nut Granola

image Since we have a costco sized bag of walnuts, I figured I would try to make raw granola. I looked up a bunch of recipes online and many of them say to put the mixture in the dehydrator. The flavor and texture of the non-dried granola is perfect so I didn’t even bother drying it.

Ingredients

1/2 cup raw walnuts, soaked overnight

1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked overnight

1/8 cup pumpkin seeds

12 dates, soaked in warm water

1 Tbsp honey

coconut flakes (optional)

Instructions

Soak the walnuts and cashews overnight in a glass jar.  Pour off the water and place the soaked nuts in the food processor. Add the honey. Pulse until coarsely chopped.  Put the nuts in a bowl.  Soak the dates for 10 minutes in warm water to soften them. Place the in the food processor and pulse until it forms a paste.  Add the nuts back in  and pulse so that the nuts combine with the paste.  Remove the mixture from the processor and place in a bowl.  Add the coconut flakes if you so desire.  I suggest eating this like cereal; with milk and fruit on top.  The milk cuts through the sweetness of the dates and makes for a hearty breakfast.

Enjoy!
