Rawnola??? If there is seriously a way to make raw granola I would love to know!!! (I have never sprouted anything yet, but have been looking forward to the opportunity. It sounds like sprouting is just tossing something in water for a couple days and then moving it to the fridge?)

Well here is how I make mine and I love it!
1 cup each Oat groats, almonds, sunflower seeds and walnuts soaked over night in a seperate bowl mix together 1/2 cup almond butter & 1/2 cup agave necter & 1 apple pureed and cinnamon to taste. Mix well with your grouts
and nut mixture. Dehydrate until you get the desired dryness you want. Then add raisins or chopped dates. Store in air tight container in the fridge.
I eat it with almond milk (like cereal) or have it sprinkled over fresh chopped fruit also have it in my frozen fruit smoothies for some crunch YUM!

Randolyn, sounds wonderful!
My kids have their ...I'm suspecting... non Rawnola.. and I've kept on trying to think of ways to make mine more yummier so they won't want that anymore. :)

You don't even have to sprout per se to make a rawnola - my favorite recipe for rawnola comes from Gabriel Cousens, and is basically soaked almonds, chopped in a food processor with an "s" blade, some shredded coconut, some mesquite pod meal, and a pinch of celtic sea salt, all blended and then dehydrated. You can add fresh or dehydrated fruit to this as well if you like.

I don't know how the rawnola recipe you posted will turn out once it's dried but the raw batter is fantastic!!! I sure hope it dries crunchy. I added 4 dates and a little date syrup to it also to make it a little sweeter and more moist. Had to make myself stop eating it wet and put it in the dehydrator...but I did lick the processor bowl clean from the wet ingredients..*wheels* are turning*.....lalalalalaaaaaaaaaa~ :D :D

Oh WOW, that looks sooooo good! I HAVE to try this... MMMMM... Awesome photo, Cinnamon!

Oh yes Debra, this is a great recipe and I've been eating it dry like a snack too. I'll need to make a bigger batch the next time I make it! Do give it a try!

I would like to try that but I'm not supposed to eat oats......can I make it with unhulled buckwheat and do you soak it longer? I'm new to sprouting. Just trying some mixed brown, black and red rices soaking in water and hoping that will work out!!

I don't see why buckwheat wouldn't work, should be fine, but use "hulled" (or "de-hulled" it's sometimes referred to) buckwheat groats (pale colour, not black), because you don't want to eat the hull! ;) Unhulled would mean the hull is still on. I really found the term "de-hulled" confusing... :rolleyes:

Wow! I am glad some of you are enjoying the grawnola recipe as much as we do :D It is a fave around here:) and it helps keep me on track too as it satisfies my cereal and milk (almond of course) craving.

I wanted to bring this one back to the top. With the cooler winter weather most of us are experiencing a recipe like this one really hits the spot. I made a large batch of it today, yum!! One of my most favorite recipes, thank you Randolyn!!
This is the version I make now, just experimenting each time I made it.
2 cups oat flakes (Alissa sells raw ones)
1 cup each of almonds, walnuts, pecans chopped in food processor (remove)
2 apples chopped in food processor
mix all with 1/2 cup almond butter, 1/2 cup agave and/or honey combo
add cinnamon or other spices
add raisins, dates (store in fridge unless you eat it up quickly!)
eat with almond milk, fresh berries, banana
Thanks for bringing this back. I have been wanting make some cereal cause there is none that is raw. I saw some ezekiel cereal yesterday that looked good but when I called the company, they said they bake it at 250 degrees. So I put it back and got disappointed.
Can't wait to try it!

Any substitute for the almond butter as thinking mega calories here?
I am planning on making it when my 20 month old grandbaby comes back to visit in a few weeks. She hated the flax crackers so I failed that test. I loved it however. She eats loads of fresh fruits/veggies, but then her mother gives her a little meat and organic milk for some strange reason I don't know.

I make mine with sprouted buckwheat, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds. Soak them overnight. The trick is not to let the buckwheat and seeds sprout for more than a short day--they grow really fast, and start to taste kind of weird and musty or green--not moldy, just over done. I look for just the hint of a tail on the buckwheat, and then get to mixing and dehydrating double quick.

I just soak buckwheat overnight then dehydrate for a few hours (I soak & dehydrate sufnlower seeds along with it if I remember...)
When it's dry I add sesame seeds, coconut (can also be dehydrated along with the buckwheat), walnuts & raisins. Eat with coconut milk and fresh fruit (usually a banana, though grated apple is nice too)
I love this and usually have it for lunch, not bkfst (though have had it for dinner on occasion too) ...kids are not so keen. DD has it sometimes.
I think I will try to sweeter 'crunchier' idea of adding agave & almond butter before dehyrating for them...thanks for the idea :)

I just made another batch of this and it is uncooking right now! Thought I'd bring this back to the top, I find with the winter weather rawnola tastes really good when I want a filling meal. Along with some almond mylk and fresh fruit, yum!
