Sesame-Sun Granola

Not too long ago I posted a granola recipe that was super delicious. Well, I loved it so much I made another batch. However, this time I changed-up the ingredients a bit, and I added lots of sesame seeds. The flavor was out-of-this-world terrific. In fact, it was so good, that we were eating the granola pieces as if they were crackers or chips – very addicting. You could probably make them into crackers…anyway. Here’s the recipe, try it for yourself:

Sesame-Sun Granola
1 cup raw oatmeal
2 cups raw sunflower seeds
1 cup raw almonds
1 cup raw pecans
1 cup raw sesame seeds
1/2 cup flax seeds
1/4 cup chia seeds
1 cup mixed dried berries and raisins
5-6 dates
drizzle of agave nectar or other syrupy sweetener
1 cup vegan chocolate chips
1/2 cup carob chips
1/4 cup cacao nibs
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1-2 T raw carob
2-3 T coconut oil
purified water

Combine all seeds, nuts, and dried fruit in a bowl. Cover with water and soak for 4-6 hours or longer. I soaked mix overnight. Drain water. Place soaked mix into food processor and roughly chop and pulse. Place in big mixing bowl. Add remaining ingredients, except for coconut oil. Mix well. Melt coconut oil and stir into mixture. Spread mixture over dehydrator trays loosely. Dehydrate for 12-16 hours – depending upon desired dryness of granola. (The dryer the mixer, the longer the storage in pantry). Break-up or smash with rolling pin, and serve. Store in airtight containers in pantry or fridge. Serve with fresh fruit, nut milk or yogurt, or over your favorite dessert dish. I love granola!
