1. Preheat the oven to 275º F.

  2. Put water and dates in a pot and bring to a boil. Once its boiling take it off the burner, add coconut oil to it and cover with a lid. Let it sit for about 10 min.

  3. Combine oats, nuts and seeds in a mixing bowl. Use a spatula or big spoon to mix it well.

  4. In a food processor add vanilla, salt and the date-water-coconut oil mixture. Blend until smooth.

  5. Add the date mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix until everything is well coated.

  6. Spread raw granola in a thin layer on a baking sheet (see below in the section “Products to create this recipe” what baking sheet works best. You might need 2 of them and spread the granola on both sheets evenly.) and bake for 20-30 min. Keep watching it and take it out before it starts getting too dark and burnt looking.

  7. Once fully baked, add raisins and mix well.

  8. Cool completely before storing. It should be crispy and completely dry. Keep in an airtight container for best storing results.
