So I decided to make it my goal this summer to try to post at least one recipe per week. I’d really like to do a weekly recipe round-up of all the recipes I’ve made in that week but that probably won’t be happening, since I have a lot of recipe mishaps. Most of the things I make are at least edible, if not yummy, but sometimes they don’t turn out as well as I hoped they would and I don’t post them because they aren’t amazing. Like the sour ‘cream’ and onion kale chips I made last weekend. They weren’t half bad and I loved how the dehydrator made them perfectly crispy, but the flavor wasn’t exactly reminiscent of sour cream and onion.
This “raw”nola on the other hand is delicious. It’s got just enough sweetness with a touch of nuttiness and I like that it came out in huge clumps. The clusters are always my favorite part of granola! Plus it’s (mostly) raw and has only 5 simple ingredients. And it’s so easy a 4 year old could make it.
Sunny “Raw”nola (vegan, raw)
1 cup oats (could use oat groats)
1 tbsp raw sunflower seeds
1 tbsp raw almond butter (or other raw nut butter)
1/4 cup agave (I used honey vanilla flavored agave)
pinch sea salt
In a large bowl, stir together the oats and seeds. Add the almond butter, agave and salt until they coat the oats and seeds and form a sticky mixture. Spoon large clumps onto a lined dehydrator tray (I used a round wax paper cut-out) and spread out until granola is about 1/2 inch high. Dehydrate for 4-6 hours, then set granola out to air dry for 1 hour. Store in a plastic bag/container or enjoy with almond milk. Makes about 2 cups.
What’s your favorite granola flavor?

Hmm,this sounds yummy! I still wish I had a dehydrator,you can make such amazing things with it,aaah!
I like “plain” graanola without many add-ins as chocolate-chips or something. I actually prefer to add my own toppings! The granola I have right now has freeze.dried berries though because this is something I can’t make on my own… 😉
You could definitely try this in an oven! I’m not sure what temp and how long but I know oven granola turns out pretty good. Ooh and I love freeze dried berries, good choice 😀
This granola looks SO GOOD! I like my granola simple. With some honey & walnuts (love that combo) and nothing else but a little oil (preferably coconut) and oats. That’s pretty cool you have a dehydrator. I want one so I can make my own healthy fruit roll ups! 🙂
Simple is always the best! And I’ve been wanting to make fruit roll-ups too, just gotta get the special sheets to make them!
I love this! Not only because it involves some of the tastiest ingredients, but also since you get to use a dehydrator WOOOOO! 🙂
The dehydrator makes it even more fun to make!!!
this sounds yum!
It’s really good! Better than storebought granola!
Mmm this is such a better alternative than store-bought granola, and a whole lot healthier, that is for sure! Thanks for the idea madam 🙂 My favorite granola flavor is anything with a peanut butter taste or maple!
I love peanut butter or maple granola too! I’m gonna try one of those flavors next!
The clusters are the best part! I love any flavor of granola. 🙂 The Nature’s Path Pumpkin flax plus or hemp ones are probably my favorite, though!
Ohhhhh I’ve never tried pumpkin granola! That sounds amazing for fall though!
Ohhhh, Im in love with this! Ive had my dehydrator for over a year and never really used it….looks like nows the time!
The dehydrator works perfectly for this recipe–give it a try! And so much better than granola from the store, plus it’s cheaper!
