Raw Granola Recipe

Raw Granola Recipe

 I love granola. I usually buy it at the store already made, but I've been trying to eat healthier and include more raw food in my diet, so I decided to try making my own granola. It is delicious. It basically has the taste of oatmeal cookies without all the sugar and flour.


3 cups Old-Fashioned Oatmeal
1 cup golden raisins
1 cup unsweetened coconut
1 cup slivered fresh almonds
1/4 cup coconut oil melted
1/4 cup agave
1 tsp. ground cinnamon


Mix first four ingredients together in a large bowl. Melt coconut oil in a microwave safe dish for 30 seconds. Mix melted coconut oil,  agave, and cinnamon together. Pour over dry ingredients and mix well. You can eat raw if you like, or bake it in a 150-170 degree oven for 10 minutes, then take out and stir and bake 10 more minutes. This is still considered raw since it is on such a low temperature. It is basically the same as putting it in a dehydrator, which you can do, if you have one. Most recipes I saw online said to leave in the dehydrator for 10 hours, if you choose that method. I did mine in the oven, but it was also good unbaked. I ate mine with coconut almond milk, but you can use whatever kind of milk you choose. It would also be good with fruit and yogurt.
