Ingredients:

  • 2 ¼ cups oatmeal

  • 2 ¼ cups almonds

  • ¾ cups water

  • 1 cup dates

  • ¾ cup raisins (optional)

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF (175ºC).

  2. Put water and dates in a pot and bring to a boil.

  3. Once boiling, immediately remove from the stove and cover with a lid. Let it stand for 5 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile add oatmeal and almonds in a food processor and blend until you have a coarse meal. Transfer into a bowl.

  5. Now add the water and dates into the food processor and blend until smooth.

  6. Add the oatmeal and almond mixture back to the food processor and pulse a few times, just until combined.

  7. Pour on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Use your hands to create granola-like clusters.

  8. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes until crunchy, turning granola in between to avoid burning.

  9. Let it sit on the counter until completely dry and cool.

  10. Optional: Add raisins.

  11. Store in a breathable container to maintain air flow and to avoid moisture getting trapped.


Notes:

Serve with plant based milk or yoghurt. Top with fresh fruit.
