Mmmmm…Granola

I threw this together one day thinking that I would make cookies or something with it and ended up eating the entire bag to fuel me for a busy day of picture taking. While I was munching away I thought “Boy, this would be good if I dehydrated it and turned it into a crunchy granola.” So, that is what I’ve done. I added in some hearty chunks of yumminess to give you this:

Granola

3/4 cup Almond meal

1/2 cup Dates

1/2 cup Raisins

1/2 cup Ground Flax Seeds

1/4 cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut

2 Tbsp. Agave Nectar

2 Tbsp. Almond Milk (or water)

1 tsp. Cinnamon

1 Apple, chopped

1 cup Almonds, soaked, partially dehydrated and chopped

1 cup Walnuts, soaked, dehydrated and chopped

Place almond meal, dates and raisins in the food processor. Process until well incorporated but leaving some chunks of dates and raisins. Add ground flax seeds, unsweetened shredded coconut, agave nectar, almond milk and cinnamon. Pulse until incorporated being careful to not over blend, making a doughy mixture. In a large bowl mix together the doughy mixture, chopped apple pieces, chopped almonds and walnuts. Spread onto a dehydrator sheet and dehydrate at 110 degrees for 24 to 48 hours, depending on your preferred crunch factor.

Serving suggestions:
This can be eaten like cereal with almond milk, fresh berries and a sliced banana, ice cream topper or alone as a hearty crunchy snack straight out of the bag. I’m just hoping the next batch makes it out of the dehydrator.

Add in:
Pecans would also be great in this recipe too!
