PB Granola

Whoo, I have been on a recipe search for new granola recipes and Gone Raw had one that caught my eye. It is titled Peanut Butter granola and I imagined a nice hearty granola bar that had that creamy nut butter yum. Mmm!

Almond Butter Granola
serves 1-4

1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 c. raw oats
1/4 c. dried cranberries
1/4 c. goji berries
1/2 c. almonds chopped
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4-1/2 c. honey
1/2 c. almond butter

Mix in a bowl starting with 1/4 c. honey. Taste for sweetness. Dehydrate 8 hours or overnight. Eat warm or cold.

Well, I tasted this little bit that it makes and fell in love so I started dumping a lot more in. I used about 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 1/2 c oats and doubled the cranberries. I didn’t have gojis so I used raisins instead. I hadn’t soaked more almonds so I only used the original 1/2 c. but added chia seeds and hemp seeds, a little more salt and only 1/2 c. honey total. And yes, more lovely almond butter to make it ooey and gooey. I started dehydrating it in the afternoon and Gatlin and I both had it for a snack that evening warm with some almond milk in it. By morning, it was done in the dehydrator. I had some plain in a bowl. It would be fantastic with berries on top as well.

Another option with this great recipe would be to make cookies. Form the batter into balls and freeze for a couple hours. Play around and add your favorite dried fruits to make all sorts of fantastic granola perfect for breakfast, a filling snack or to take on those summer vacations!
