I don´t make granola so often and don´t eat it so often, but a couple of weeks ago I was craving for an Acai-bowl. If you eat it the brazilian way you should add some granola on the top. I realized I really missed having granola on my rawghurts and nut milks too, so here is a granola recipe for you. In this granola, that is gluten free, I have buckwheat, millet and oats that is rich in b-vitamins and iron, but you can also use quinoa flakes, coconut flakes, just let your creativity flow. Add nuts if you want. If you are sensitive to nuts and seeds, it´s good if you soak them overnight to make them easier to digest. I added my favorite dried fruits & berries in this one (mangoes, gojies and apricots), but you can change it to your own favorite dried fruits or berries.
3 C Rolled oats, millet flakes, buckwheat flakes or other kind of flakes that you like
½ C Coconut ripple/flakes
½ C Pumpkin seeds
½ C Sesame seeds
1-1½ tbsp Cinnamon, ground
½-1 tbsp Cloves, ground
½-1 tbsp Ginger, ground
½ C Coconut oil
1-2 tbsp Coconut sugar or other sweetener of choice
½ C Water
½-1 C Dried fruits
Place the oats, flakes and seeds in a big bowl. In another bowl whisk together the spices, oil, sweetener and water. Pour the spice-mixture in the bowl with grains/seeds and mix everything well. Spread the mixture out on a baking tin and bake in 170°C/300-325ºF oven for 20 minutes or so. Stir in the mixture every now and then and make sure it doesn´t burn. The granola should be golden yellow when it´s done, so depending on your oven it can take longer time or shorter.
Let the granola cool down, and add your favorite dried fruits. I used dried mango, apricots and goji berries in this. You can also add nuts and bake them together with the granola.

Almonds are packed with good nutrition and fat. They provide protein, magnesium, zink, iron, calcium and a lot of E-vitamin and more. If you´re not drinking milk, almond milk is a good substitute. Have them with your cereals, in your tea or just plain as it is. This is the tastiest almond milk I´ve ever tasted!
1/2 C Almonds, soaked over night
1-2 Dates, soaked, over night if dried
1/8 tsp Vanilla powder, natural black powder
1,5-2 C Water, or as much you want, depending how thick you want the milk
Soak the almonds (and dates if they are dried) over night.
Strain and rinse them.
If you want to use the almond pulp for something else and save it: first put only the almonds and water in a food processor with an S blade. (If you have a good blender you can use that instead. You can also grind the almonds before blending them in the water, making it easier for your processor.)
Process until the almonds and water is creamy and smooth.
Strain the almond mixture in a piece of cheese cloth or nut milk bag.
Save the almond pulp until later making delicious nut burger.
Now you have your natural almond milk without taste. But I find the milk to be a little bit bitter, so I usually add flavor. Now blend the almond milk with the dates and vanilla powder.
Strain again, to get rid of the dates.
Keep the milk in the fridge and enjoy!
