Last night someone called me crazy. It is the first time I have really been called crazy since I went raw and friends were calling me crazy all the time (hence the name of the blog… and I actually quite like being a little crazy). Anyway, this was because I put a batch of granola in the dehydrator on Sunday and forgot about it until last night, which was Friday. Lucky it was still good. Actually, it’s better than good, it’s pretty damn addictive, and it’s good for you! Not just because it’s raw, but because I developed it without sweeteners, i.e. agave or maple syrup, and it’s still sweet without being overpowering.
This has ‘super foods’ in it (although I believe all natural foods are super for you, not just those ones that are outrageously, crippling expensive and from poor, exotic, tropical locations!), and was dehydrated until crunchy, and has lots of nuts. In hindsight I could have also called it ‘poverty-inducing granola’ due to the ‘super food’ and fancy nut combination but I’m sure you could mix it up a little and use whatever you have in the cupboard, or whatever you fancy buying (or investing in, as I like to say to justify my (sometimes very) large grocery bills).
I also want to take a minute to dedicate this recipe to my most wonderful raw foodie friend Brooke. We both like Alissa Cohen’s granola recipe but it uses a bucket-load of agave and we never really feel comfortable with it, hence me finding an alternative. And it was her idea to add mulberries – love!
