Description

A healthy oil- and sugar-free vegan superfood granola recipe that’s great for snacking or breakfast. Just add fresh fruit and your favorite non-dairy milk!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup Grape Nuts or Food for Life Ezekial Cereal
  • 1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup goji berries (or other dried fruit)
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1/4 cacao nibs
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon açaí powder, optional
  • 1 cup chopped medjool dates, soaked in water to soften (reserve water)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 unsweetened sunbutter

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 250-degrees F. 
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the oats, Grape Nuts, berries, seeds, cacao nibs, cinnamon and açaí powder.
  3. In a blender or food processor, blend the dates, maple syrup, and sunbutter. If needed, add a tablespoon or two of the date soaking water if the mixture is too thick to blend. Scrape  into the oat mixture and stir until the ingredients are thoroughly coated.
  4. Scrape granola onto a large baking sheet and bake, stirring every 15-20 minutes, until firm and beginning to crisp. As the granola cools, it will crisp up even more. Let it cool completely before storing in a air-tight container.

Notes

Make it gluten-free by using more oats in the place of the Grape-Nuts.
