It’s What I’m Eating Wednesday on the Vegan Mainstream Cookbook Club, and this is my share for today:
This recipe was adapted from one my favorites to include less sugar and more healthy ingredients – but it’s the BEST granola ever!
To make the granola:
1/4 cup coconut sugar
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup coconut oil
2/3 cup raisins
3 cups oats
1 cup brown rice puffs
1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/4 cup pecans 1/4 cup wheat germ
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp allspice
(vary the nuts/seeds, spices if you like)
1) soak raisins in hot water until plump; set aside
2) in a small saucepan heat sugars and oil gently until dissolved
3) mix remaining ingredients together and toss with sugar mixture, mix well
4) place into an ungreased 9×13 pan and bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in raisins and cool completely. Store in airtight container.
I serve this with this LOVELY Vanilla Cashew Yogurt from Dreena Burton http://plantpoweredkitchen.com/vanilla-cashew-yogurt-vegan/ Delicious!
