2 ¼ cups oatmeal
2 ¼ cups almonds
¾ cups water
1 cup dates
¾ cup raisins (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350ºF (175ºC).
Put water and dates in a pot and bring to a boil.
Once boiling, immediately remove from the stove and cover with a lid. Let it stand for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile add oatmeal and almonds in a food processor and blend until you have a coarse meal. Transfer into a bowl.
Now add the water and dates into the food processor and blend until smooth.
Add the oatmeal and almond mixture back to the food processor and pulse a few times, just until combined.
Pour on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Use your hands to create granola-like clusters.
Bake for 15 - 20 minutes until crunchy, turning granola in between to avoid burning.
Let it sit on the counter until completely dry and cool.
Optional: Add raisins.
Store in a breathable container to maintain air flow and to avoid moisture getting trapped.
Serve with plant based milk or yoghurt. Top with fresh fruit.
