Raw apple cinnamon seed granola


granola (97)

I am always looking for breakfast options that don’t include eggs,wheat, or dairy for my kids and I. It can be difficult to find things that meet this criteria and that every one likes. I use to love cereals as a child and have not eaten much cereal since I went gluten free about 12 years ago. So I am going on a cereal kick and going to try to come up with a few different types of cereals that are grain free for us to have on hand. Also I love to have some crunchies to throw on my salads as well.

Apple cinnamon seed granola (raw/vegan)

1 cup coconut shreds

1 cup raw buckwheat groats

1 cup sesame seeds (I used black and white)

1 cup sunflower or pumpkin seeds

1 cup flax seeds

1/2 cup ground flax seeds

1/2 cup water

1-2 tablespoons of raw honey (or stevia)

1 apple chopped and peeled

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 tablespoon cinnamon

optional: 1/2 cup raisins or other dried fruits

pinch of sea salt

* Mix ingredients and press onto parchment paper ( about 1/2″ thick)

* Dehydrate for about 24 hours or until crunchy

* Makes about 6-8 servings (2 days worth for 3 of us)

This recipe is also seen here  and here and here  with many other gluten free recipes.

  1. Hi, I notice you never mention soaking the seeds and nuts you use in your recipes. Is this because you don’t or is it just a given that its been done? Thanks

    • It is always the preferred way to eat them but I don’t always do it. I did have a big batch of soaked and sprouted/dehydrated buckwheat groats that I was using but I used it up now so I need to do another batch.Thanks for the reminder, maybe I will do a sprouting time/info post soon:)

  2. This makes me seriously consider buying a dehydrator!

  3. This sounds really good! And what a great idea to sprinkle it on salads too!
