Raw ‘Toasted’ Fruit & Nut Granola

I have to admit, this is my favorite paleo type muesli recipe I’ve made yet, and I’ve had quite a few trial runs! It’s a great breakfast option on its own with your favorite milk but it can also be sprinkled on yogurt or as a topping to stewed fruit for breakfast or as an anytime-snack on its own. Nuts and seeds have a long myriad list of nutrients such as magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc and B vitamins. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do! You can easily use substitutions on this list. I used my dehydrator but you can use your oven at a very low temperature.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup (70 g) macadamias
  • ½ cup (70 g) almonds
  • ½ cup (70 g) cashews
  • ½ cup (85 g) buckwheat
  • 4 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 4 tbsp pepitas
  • 4 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 4 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp goji berries
  • 4 dates, pitted, chopped
  • 2 tbsp raisins (sultanas)
  • 4 tbsp ground flaxseeds
  • 2  tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • sea salt, to taste

Directions

  1. Soak all of the nuts, seeds (not the ground flaxseeds) and dried fruit in filtered water for 6-8 hours then rinse.
  2. Preheat your oven (if not using a dehydrator) to 120F (50C) or less if you prefer.
  3. Dry the mixture with a clean tea towel or absorbent paper towel then pulse in a food processor to break up the mixture a few times.
  4. Add in the flaxseeds, coconut oil, maple syrup, spices and salt.
  5. Line a baking tray with baking paper and spread the mixture out and bake in the oven for 8-10 hours or a dehydrator for 10 hours or until a crunchy texture is reached. May need to toss mixture to even up the drying.
  6. Break it up into pieces then store in an air-tight container for up to 4-6 weeks.
