Rawnola is basically a mixture of delicious seeds,nuts, dried fruits and anything else you want to add. It’s like blitzed up muesli. I’ve used oats like a traditional granola, so it’s packed full of slow release energy as well as having all of that goodness from the seeds and nuts. The dates help to hold it all together and give a natural sweetness. I’ve added a little cinnamon which balances out that sweetness and is barely obvious so if you want a more warm cinnamon spice taste just add another teaspoon. I put everything in the food processor and blitz it till it starts to clump together then you can add a little extra coconut flakes for texture.
I only had hemp seeds so milled them down in the Nutribullet. That means the hemp powder is really fresh, much nicer than the ready milled stuff.
This is a great breakfast to have with your choice of milk, yogurt, fresh fruit or you can scatter it over a smoothie bowl. I keep mine in the fridge so its stays extra fresh, it’s so delicious with coconut milk and raspberries! Sprinkle over a teaspoon of cacao nibs and this is serious dessert territory!
