Superfood Granola

granola

I love superfoods and I love granola! So I joined the two in marriage, and my goodness its a great one (;Β Its so nice to know your getting all this goodness in your breakfast bowl and it tastes amazing! It is also great as a after dinner treat (;

This recipe is fairly easy and you can either dehydrate it for the raw version or cook it in the oven which is quicker. I try make a big batch of this to last the month, but it never does!

Superfood Granola

Dry ingredients: *Use Organic where you can

2 Cups Oats
1 Cup dehydrated Buckwheat (or oats)
1 Cup mixed seeds (sunflower, pumpkin, sesame)
2 Cups Pecan nuts(chopped), -other nuts are great to use too
1/2 Cup Goiji Berries
1/2 Cup Hemp seeds

Paste Ingredients:

2 Cups Raw cashews (soaked 2 hours)
1 tsp Vanilla powder
6 Medjool Dates
1/4 Cup Organic Maple Syrup
1/2 tsp Himalayin Salt
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 Cup dairy free milk(I use almond)
1/2 Cup filtered water

Directions:

Firstly you want to combine all your paste ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until smooth. Combine your dry ingredients(except hemp seeds) in a large mixing bowl and then add your paste ingredients to that and mix well.

*If using an oven I suggest adding both hemp seeds and goiji berries after cooking, and any other superfoods you would like to add.

Once combined spread a thin layer of your granola on your dehydrator trays, or your tray to pop into the oven.

The cooking time for the oven is 25-30minutes and the dehydrator takes about 12-16 hours, or until nice and dry. (I find all dehydrators do dry at different speeds, so see how yours goes).

If using the oven turn your granola every 5 minutes or so, and I suggest the same in the dehydrator after your first 2-3 hours give it a mix around.

Once dry and ready you can add your hemp seeds and other superfoods you may enjoy, you can store your granola in a glass jar, that will keep it fresh and it looks really pretty ! Serve with a plant-based milk of your choice and fruit (I like banana).

I hope you enjoy this as much as I do! Its really delish!

  1. Hey Kirsty sweet, Im drooling thinking about how yummy this is. Hope to make it this weekend. Where do you advise to get ingredients from. Also what is your recommended amount per meal? And how many meals do you think it will last for? Not sure if I should just do 2 batches in one go.

    1. Hey my dear, I find my ingredients at Dischem or a health store. I usually have as much as I feel, until i’m satisfied hehe . This batch last Bernd like 2 weeks I think, if I remember correctly, you could always double up and store in an airtight jar and it will keep. Then it’s always on hand to have as a snack aswell (:
