Raw Acai-Goji Granola
  • WET mixture:
  • - 1 frozen packet of Acai* (available at Wholefoods and other health stores)
  • - 1 cup organic Thompson raisins
  • - ¾ cup raw coconut nectar or maple syrup
  • - Juice of one lemon
  • - 1 Tbs. vanilla extract
  • - 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • - ¼ cup sunflower seeds (soaked for 3 hours and rinsed)
  • - A pinch of high quality sea salt, to taste (optional)
  • * Please note: Acai is a fat-containing fruit, so it digests pretty well with seeds. I don't recommend using apples or other fruits for this recipe.
  • DRY mixture:
  • - 1 cup Goji Berries*
  • - 1 cup sunflower seeds (soaked for 3 hours and rinsed)
  • - 1 cup pumpkin seeds (soaked for 3 hours and rinsed)
  • - 2 cups almonds (soaked 14-28 hours and rinsed)
  • - 3 cups pecans (soaked for 2 hours and rinsed)
  1. Please note: dried fruit combines well with nuts and seeds.
  2. Don’t get bogged down with all the sprouting times!
  3. Just remember to soak the almonds overnight, then remember to soak the other nuts a few hours before you make the granola.
  4. In a blender, blend the wet mixture until smooth.
  5. Chop all the nuts in the dry mixture (keeping as chunky as you like your granola!) then add them to a large mixing bowl, along with the Goji berries.
  6. Pour the wet mixture on top and mix well.
  7. Spread the granola on Teflex covered over the dehydrator trays and dehydrate at 110 degrees F for about 8 hours. Flip and keep dehydrating for another 8-10 hours, or until the granola is crunchy.
  8. Break into pieces and store in an airtight container in the fridge. The granola will harden in the fridge!
