Serving Suggestion:

How To:

  1. Ahead of time, soak your 1 ½ cups of pitted medjool dates in 2 cups of water. Preferably overnight but if you don’t have time, try to soak for at least two hours.
  2. Once your dates have soaked you can begin prepping the other components. Start by preheating your oven to 300 degrees.
  3. While your oven preheats combine all dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl.
  4. Next, drain your soaked dates and add to a high speed blender with your maple syrup, vanilla extract and ¼ cup of water. Blend on high until smooth.
  5. Once blended, add to dry ingredients and stir until fully combined.
  6. Pour your granola mixture out onto a baking tray and spread to create an even layer.
  7. Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 10-15 minutes. Once your granola appears to have browned, remove from your oven and let cool completely. Once cooled you can remove from the baking tray and store, or add to your favorite dish right away!

*The maple syrup is optional, if you want your granola less sweet omit maple syrup and add slightly more water when you blend your dates.
