yes, Jenny Cornbleet has a recipe in her book Raw Foods Made Easy for 1 or 2. I haven't tried it yet but I like the other things of hers I've tried.

When you mix together the ingredients that go into granola, it's considered granola without it being dehydrated. There are a lot of recipes like that. If you're looking for something that sticks together and is more like a bar, you need a dehydrator. Though you can probably come up with something using honey to get them to stick together some.
Some raw companies sell granola in either a snack or cereal version.

Yes, I just bought the Two Moms in the Raw granola. It's a cerealish type thing and I LOVE it!
I guess my question is: I know I can soak and sprout the nuts/seeds/grains, but I'm wanting to make more of a dried, cereal texture. Can I just leave them out to dry? I know it probably wont' get quite as crispy, but has anyone tried this?

I used to make muesli simply with things that go into it that are already dry.
desiccated or flaked coconut
sultanas and other dried fruits including figs, apricots, peaches, currants, etc.
a pinch of sesame seeds
I sprout buckwheat and dry it to add to the above now. Buckwheat really lends itself to easy drying. Try sprouting it and spreading it out in a thin layer outside on a sunny windy day (I did this several times with a cake net over it and they dried beautifully) this can be the granola base.
If you'd like soaked nuts in the mix, try sprouting them, then breaking them up into small pieces (I use a mortar and pestle) and do the same to dry them out as the buckwheat.
Alternatively, if you can order sprouted dried buckwheat on the net or at a wholefoods store and add all the rest, that might be an economical alternative.
