I know that’s a bold claim…

But, look, I couldn’t even wait for this raw granola to get out of the dehydrator, before it was almost completely gone. That’s some serious granola.

I really think we have it nailed here…

Send out our application for the Best Raw Granola Cook Off (or Prep Off). We’ll win, I promise. ;-)

Good news is that now you have this awesome raw granola recipe as well!

Go ahead and watch…

Raw Granola or “G-rawwww-nola” Recipe (“The Best Raw Granola in the Universe Ever Plus One”)

2/3 Cups Sprouted Buckwheat
1/2 Cup Sprouted Sunflower Seeds
1/2 Cup Sprouted Oats
1 Cup Chopped Soak Almonds
(the dry ingredients you can play around with… add more nuts that you like add more oats if you you like less buckwheat… what ever you like :-) )

1/4 Cup Coconut Oil*
1/4 cup Raw Local Honey or Maple Syrup*

*to liquefy place decided amount in small jar then place small jar in warm water or out in sun

1 Tbsp Vanilla
Cinnamon to liking
Sea Salt to liking

If you have a Kevin at home plan on doubling the recipe! :-)

Mix together all together with hands. Spread on Dehydrator Sheet and dehydrate at 115 for 8-12 hours.

Serve with a Nut milk and dried or fresh fruit!! Enjoy!

You can put this in the oven at a low temperature if you don’t have a dehydrator… it may not still be “raw” but it will still taste awesome and is still a pretty healthy alternative to Twinkies and Mountain Dew… ;-)

Live Awesome!

    Mmm granola… When I was a kid, I used to eat it with applesauce! Sooo good.

  2. Renée says:

    I had granola once when I was travelling in Laos, and it was great! (Yes, I’ve had granola just once in my life. Strange, I know. It’s not very common in Australia! and usually not vegan when you can get it.) I’m going to give soak the ingredients today, & try it with agave nectar, and possibly add pumpkin seed milk, gojis, & dried apricot to serve. Thanks for the recipe!

  3. Esther says:

    You guys are so adorable! Thanks for sharing your granola recipe. Can’t wait to try it.

    Blueberries would be a great addition.

  4. Jenn says:

    That looks wonderful, no wonder there was only one tray left!

    I really do need to get more into sprouting so I can make things like this.

  5. Kevin Gianni Kevin Gianni says:

    Annie, you can put mango and apples in the vitamix with some cinnamon and really make this amazing!

    Renee, I have to admit, I don’t think I’ve ever met someone who’s had granola only once… ;-) It’s equally as good with agave if you’re strict vegan. Enjoy!

    Esther and Jenn, it tastes amazing… I didn’t feel bad eating it last night, but once I started I realized that I needed to practice a little self control, or else our show would have been shot! ;-)

    This is one of the best sprouting recipes around… plus, just the sunflower seeds sprouted are awesome!

    Can’t wait to get sprouting! Looks yummy. You have inspired me to give it a go. Thanks for all your efforts.

  7. Danieal says:

    I just went to Whole Foods to buy all the stuff. I can’t wait to make this.

  8. sharon says:

    I love your shows, thank you for the inspiration! I have made Brigitte Mars granola from her book Rawsome many times and my husband and son both enjoy it(thats saying something!) I would like to try yours and wonder where you get viable oats – I’ve never found them! Thanks again!

  9. Carol Kraft says:

    Wow Kev and Ann Marie!

    It looks sooo yummy! Only problem is that I don’t have your kind of dehydrator. I do have a round, stackable one (6 trays) with no temp control and you plug in an turn the switch on.
    small fan in base. Would that work okay? How far away from the fan?
    Hope to hear back from you.
    Carol

  10. Anne-Marie says:

    I only have found black buckweat grains, Is it still ok? or can I put any other sprouted grains I have in stock?

    seems very good and I will definitely give it a try!

    Kevin and Annmarie,
    Thanks for showing us how to do it. It really looks delicious and would be a great snack whenever I need to chew on something.
    What I need to ask is if I can’t find coconut oil, what can be the substitute for it?

    Thanks,
    May

  12. Janice says:

    Looks Great!!! I like dates in my granola, got hooked on majools when I lived in Arizona. What kind of dehydrater are you using????

  13. hi kevin,
    now i know this may not be the right place to post this but maybe you could address this in a future issue. its about cravings. i finished reading energetic contamination of beef products by mike adams and i agree with every word and have heard it all many times before. i have been transitioning for 4 years and am 51 years old i go for weeks at a time with no meat and eating raw and my goal is to be all raw. i want that very bad and have surronded myself with the raw community. but… you know what, even when i was reading that article on how horriably they treat the animals, how we could get mad cow disease etc. thinking about it made me crave a steak! now thats screwed up! my mind knows what is right but my body won’t obey. please talk about this issue. and do you have any testimonies on people who didn’t go raw in one day and may have taken a few years.
    trying really hard,
    Penny thank you for all you do

  14. The blip.tv video doesn’t work as well as the YouTube video. Just FYI.

  15. What I didn’t say about this video though… my mouth watered watching this thing. Wow that looks YUMMY!!!

    I think we’ll be making this… (or maybe I’ll be talking Carrie into making this). She thought it looked super yummy too.

  16. ida margrethe says:

    oh my jeebus, that looks AMAZING!
    i never really eat granola, dont think they have it at home (norway), but they have it where i live now (australia). but i would chuck in a heap of fruit for sure, especially raisins and gojiberries. oh! and fresh blueberries/raspberries/strawberries from the garden, or frozen when its not autumn and berries arnt in the garden anymore.
    yummy! thanks heaps for that. think this is my fav episode so far. LOVE the Ine the kitchen episodes.

    peace

  17. Anthony Ruffa says:

    WOW! That looks soooo good! I don’t think that’s an exaggeration saying that it’s the best raw granola in the universe ever! Can’t wait to try it out! I’m gonna put goji berries and maybe raisins on it and all sorts of fresh WILD berries from the woods this summer! Hemp seed mylk… Mmmmmmmm… :-p Perfect break-fast for raw vegan athletes or anyone for that matter! I’ve been trying to come up with the “best granola recipe ever” and you know what? I think I’ve found it! Thanks for the recipe!!!

  18. Renée says:

    I made it! I don’t know if it’s the best granola on the planet, given my inexperience in the area, but it certainly is superb! I used a little less agave & coconut oil than the recipe calls for, & added a little flaxmeal + water to sticky it up to try to make more chunky bits, which worked really well. =)

  19. Carol B says:

    This is absolutely some of the BEST I have made….never have I wanted to eat the whole lot before it went into the dehydrator…I have heard people say that and never really understood till today…..Thank you….even made my SAD husbands eyes light up….I used maple syrup and honey. This is a winner.

  20. krissy says:

    i’m totally going to try it. i have major major cravings with cereal. do you guys have any other raw cereal ideas? i could probably live off this granola!

    the hardest part for me (i live in canada) is finding raw seeds and grains to sprout. i’ve been scouring the little bitty asian markets here and have found some pretty good and pretty cheap raw grains and seeds. do you think that means they arent organic?

    anyways here’s a recipe for dehydrated ‘cookies’ that i tried yesterday, and i love it

    sprouted wheat
    banana
    dates
    cinnamon and salt

    i ground it all up in a food processor and it tasted awesome, so i put it in the dehydrator in little patties and now have some really awesome cookies! it was super easy.

    i love your site, keep up the good work!
    the recipe portions are GREAT! finding recipes that work, i think, is the hardest part of trying to go raw

    2nd request for help to get the right side of this column to print out. Only the column on the left will print. ???? Don’t have trouble on other web sites.

    Would LOVE to print out these recipes!…..
