I recently found a deep love for granola, and shortly after decided that I might love rawnola even more.
Now, I have seen recipes for rawnola floating around the internet for a while, and they essentially boil down to having two ingredients: oats and dates. A lot of people add spices and dried fruits and things of that nature to them, but I wanted to give you the super simple guide to the base of rawnola with the right ratios, and then if you would like to add anything to them, you can essentially just add them in addition to this base recipe.
The reason I love rawnola (and granola) so much is its simple nutritional value. It takes so little effort to make a batch, and the health benefits are so great. It’s low in fats, high in carbs, and super high in flavor. You can add it to anything, and you can add anything to it. So beautiful and simple!
Another great tip before we dive in to the recipe: instead of pulling it into little granola-y pieces, you can also roll them into rounded inch-sized balls to create little oat bites. Those are the best to add extra ingredients to in order to create new flavors and textures!
Thanks for stopping by ♥
- ♥ 1 cup raw rolled oats
- ♥ 20-25 raw dates
- Pulse oats in food processor for a few seconds until evenly chopped up.
- Add in dates 8-10 at a time and pulse until a clumpy, sticky mixture is formed.
- Eat right out of the processor, and save extras by putting them into a jar in the fridge.
- ♥ I like to add cinnamon to mine for a simple delicious addition. If you would like to, simply add 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon into the processor with the dates.
