Grab a bowl…
...but forget about that sugary/hydrogenated crap from a box! Welcome to grawnola. The stuff thats good for you!
A client wanted a huge batch of granola, so it was the perfect time to take care of that when I made the cookies the other day. Cranberry Maple is by far the best grawnola recipe I've come across, from Raw Food Real World. I've made it a bunch of times, sometimes using goji berries in place of cranberries, and switching walnuts for the pecans.
It is full of ingredients like:
Mmmm, the batter it itself is wonderful, and I've not yet tried but I know this recipe would be great shaped into breakfast cookies. Great for a person on the run. This took my biggest mixing bowl, and I still found it a challenge to mix...I ended up with a few bowls on the go!
After many hours in the dehydrator (flipping and breaking it up along the way), it was fini! And oh man, the aroma when that stuff is "baking"! Let me tell you, it permeates the whole house with a nutty/cinnamony/orangey smell.
I've always loved granola but was never a breakfast person, so this is a nice occasional dinner treat for me. Topped with almond milk and blueberries...Mmmm.
