Claire!

Thanks so much for posting this; your timing couldn't be more perfect! I have one more D day planned before we leave for our big road trip and I was actually planning to make granola bars!

Will let you know how they turn out!

These look delicious! One question, when recipes call for dehydrated nuts, what does that mean? Soaked, then rinsed then d? For how long/what temp do you d for?

And what's the difference with d-ing the pulp vs. whole nuts?

As I'm a newbie to raw foods myself, I'm pretty sure "dehydrated nuts" are soaked/sprouted raw nuts, and then dehydrated...as you said. I did not do that to the nuts in this recipe.

As for the almond pulp, I use the pulp as opposed to the fresh nut or wet pulp for two reasons. 1.) I have a ton of it around from making almond milk all the time, and 2.) the wet-to-dry ratio will vary if using fresh ground almonds or wet almond pulp instead of dehydrated pulp. The difference will be minor, but a difference none the less. Also, if you just process raw nuts, you have to watch it so you don't turn the "flour" into a nut butter.

I've also made these to take along for the road. I added a few spoonfuls of various superfoods (lucuma, maca and mesquite) to the basic recipe. Yummo!

Wow, those look really good. I really need a dehydrator. I realize they can be made without one, but I'd like to try them with one.

Did everyone actually buy the special raw rolled oats or did you use something else? Thinking of substituting regular rolled oats because I just cannot special order another novel raw food ingredient.
