This easy vegan & oil-free granola recipe is very versatile which means you can add other seeds/ nuts or spices that you like or leave them out completely. Sweetened with only dates, this crunchy granola is made without any extra added sugar.
Soak dates in water overnight (or a few hours in warm water).
Preheat the oven to 250 ° F (120° C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Drain dates and add to blender with about 1/2 cup soaking water and vanilla extract. Blend until pureed.
In a big bowl mix together dry ingredients: oats, almond flour, seeds, nuts, spices. Add date puree and (with your hands) combine well until everything is coated.
Spread onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for about 1.5 hours, stirring about half way through.
Allow to cool completely before serving. Now you could also add dried fruit like raisins or cranberries.
