Raw Vegan Granola and Apples

THE PERFECT, SIMPLE, QUICK, RAW BREAKFAST TREAT YOUR KIDS WILL LOVE, SO WILL YOUR BUDGET.  This is super cheap, just a few dimes a serving, especially since we gleaned the apples and pick our berries.  To make it as least expensive as you can, use sunflower seeds instead of nuts, use honey instead of the other sweeteners and use butter or safflower oil instead of coconut oil.  I know, butter is not vegan, to make it vegan, use one of the other fats.

Food for the Good Life must be simple and nutritious.  This is both.

Raw Vegan Breakfast Granola
A simple, inexpensive, delicious treat!

So simple you’ll laugh.  In your food processor, process a bit of oats, nuts and seeds (I just used walnuts for this one but have done a mixture of any of the following: almonds, hazelnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, pecans etc), some butter or coconut oil, a pinch of salt, some sort of sweetener, it could be agave, honey, evaporated cane juice crystals, 2 mejool dates.  I used one date and a little bit of the evaporated cane juice, some coconut, cinnamon.  Pulse this a few times in the food processor or blender and store in an airtight container in your fridge.  In the morning, just dice up some apples or berries or stone fruit and sprinkle about 1/3 cup of the granola mixture on top.  Yummy!  For a nice amount to keep stored in your fridge to make this for your family do the following:

  • 2 cups oats
  • .5 cup coconut
  • .5 – 1 cup nuts and or seeds
  • 1/4 cup sweetener or 2-4 dates
  • pinch salt
  • 2 Tbl cinnamon
  • 4 Tbls coconut oil or butter
