I’ve been eating these granola bars for several years, and have always loved them. Granola bars seemed to me a really good way to get going with raw foods — my feeling is if I can prep a bunch of grab and go style things, it won’t be that difficult to maintain.
So, the first thing I did was buy the Two Moms in the Raw Cookbook. Sadly, I quickly learned that they don’t give that recipe in their cookbook!!!!
Heartbroken, I began my search again.
It led me to this recipe on The Fitchen: http://thefitchen.com/2013/09/19/the-best-granola-bars-ever/.
Now, this was cool, but I was confused by the whole, use of an oven in a raw diet thing. Also, I’m itching to use my dehydrator. So I used their recipe with some slight tweaks.
- 1 c. rolled oats (1/2 of the oats ground in food processor)
- ¼ c. raw pepitas
- ¼ c. raw cashew pieces
- ¼ c. millet
- 2 Tbsp. raw sunflower seeds
- 2 Tbsp. oat groats
- 5 dried Turkish apricots
- 2 Tbsp. flax seeds
- 2 Tbsp. Thompson seedless raisins
- 2 Tbsp. dried currents
- ⅓ c. maple syrup
- 1 Tbsp. peanut butter
- 1 Tbsp. raw honey
- ½ Tbsp. coconut oil
