Nutty Nola

There are no grains in this "granola." It's purely nuts! A breakfast of yogurt (the kind your diet allows) dressed with Nutty Nola and berries will leave you feeling satisfied. Nutty Nola may be "crisped" up in your dehydrator or oven. If using a dehydrator at 105˚F you will have RAW Nutty Nola ... bonus!

Soak overnight and rinse well:

1 cup raw PECANS
1 cup raw ALMONDS
2 cups raw WALNUTS
1/2 cup raw PUMPKIN SEEDS

In food processor combine the following and process to desired "chunkiness":

Soaked NUTS
1/4 cup OLIVE OIL (or coconut oil)
1/4 cup HONEY (or 15-20 drops of liquid SweetLeaf Vanilla Creme or Cinnamon Stevia)
2 tablespoons VANILLA
2 tablespoons GROUND CINNAMON
1/2 teaspoons SEA SALT

OVEN METHOD: Spread on parchment-lined jelly roll sheet and bake at 325˚F for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes.

DEHYDRATOR METHOD: Spread on Teflex-lined dehydrator tray. Dehydrate at 105˚F for 24 hours, stirring once or twice.

Mix in one cup of your favorite dried fruit (if your diet allows).

MODIFIED DIET CONSIDERATIONS: Using liquid Stevia in place of the honey makes this an Anti-Candida Diet (ACD) legal recipe. Any combination of nuts & seeds works just fine.

We really enjoy your recipes. Recently my daughter came across a wonderful recipe from the New Roots blog. She created a variance of the original recipe. It is a sprouted granola. We like quinoa, amaranth and buckwehat. It is awesome and very easy on the tummy. Blessings. Susie

Hi there. Great Site. Wonderful.

I haven't tried this yet, and I'm sure there's a good reason for it, but I'm wondering why you soak the nuts and then dry them out? Why not just mix all the ingredients together and bake?

Hi Nancy ... thanks for stopping by :) Soaking nuts neutralizes the phytic acid found in nuts and legumes. Phytic acid inhibits digestion and therefore many people choose to soak. It is a personal choice. At the time I posted this recipe, my son was having serious digestive issues and so soaking was a must. We have loosened up a bit. xoLexie
