~ Apple Date Nut Granola (grain free) ~

I didn't have any oats soaked and dehydrated to make granola but had all of my nuts and seeds soaked and ready to go so this is what I came up with.
1 c crispy almonds
1 c crispy walnuts
1 c crispy pecans
1 c crispy cashews
1 c of soaked and dehydrated sunflower seeds
4 Pippin apples, cored and peeled 8 whole dates, pitted and rough chopped
1/4 melted coconut oil

I have a small food processor so I did processed one cup of nuts/seeds at a time. Process them just enough to break them into small pieces. Dump all the nuts into a bowl. Process your apples till they are really small but not mush. Add apples to bowl. Process your dates as small as you can get them. Add dates to apples and nuts. Pour coconut oil in and mix well. Spread on a well oiled or parchment covered sheet pan and bake at 200 for 45 minutes. This turned out so well and because it is all nuts it is protein packed and the kids don't have to eat as much to get full. And, there is no added sugar, which is a bonus for the sugar sensitive people in this house. This post is shared at:


  1. Looks like a great recipe filled with goodness! I love that you don't use sugar.

  2. this sounds delicious almost like an apple crumble but so much better

  3. This sounds so good! I have been searching for the perfect soaked/dried granola recipe, and this sounds like a winner. :) Thanks for posting this - I'm excited to try it!
