Grain-Free Granola

Grain-Free Granola
Posted on Elana's Pantry

2 cups almonds
1 cup macadamia nuts
1 cup pumpkin seeds
1 cup raisins
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon celtic sea salt

1. Place nuts and seeds in a large bowl, cover with water and soak overnight

2. Place raisins in a separate bowl, cover with ( ½ to 1 cup) water and soak overnight

3. Place the raisins, along with their soaking water in a food processor and puree until smooth

4. In a fine mesh metal strainer, drain and rinse the nuts and seeds and discard the soaking water

5. Add nuts and seeds to raisin puree in food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped, to the consistency of granola, then add vanilla, cinnamon and salt and pulse briefly to incorporate these final ingredients

6. Transfer mixture onto two large parchment lined baking sheets*

7. To make live granola, place in the oven on the lowest setting (usually 135°) for 24 hours*

8. For instant gratification, bake 45 minutes in the oven at 250°*; for this more decadent treat, I sometimes drizzle agave over the granola, or add shredded coconut, currants and other dried fruit

9. Serve

* Carmella's Note: This was taken from a 'cooked' site so to make it truly raw, simply place mixture on teflex sheet and dehydrate until crunchy, flipping the granola onto the mesh after about 6 to 8 hours.

Serves 12

Enjoy this nutritious power packed, grain-free, gluten-free, healthy raw granola with fresh fruit, plain yogurt or as I do, simply by the handful.
