Granola bars

Donna and I attended a ¬†cooking class with Joan Jackson on eating raw. One of her main points of emphasis is that recipes are really formulas. That is, if the recipe calls for a particular nut, you can substitute ¬†the kind you want to achieve your goal. and as far as measurements, relative proportions are important, but there wasn’t much exact measurement going on in the class.

Thus inspired, I endeavored to make my own granola bars without a recipe or plan. I put each ingredient in the food processor individually, then added to the mix.

sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, shredded coconut, and pecans. mixed in a medium bowl. Added some vegan white chocolate (purchased online) chopped fine. I soaked some flax seed meal for about 20 minutes, then added it as a binder. Also added enough agave to make the mix hold together.

Then spread out on a flat plastic sheet on a dehydrator, and set to 105 degrees. The goal was to dehydrate for 12 hours, turn it over, then do another 12 hours. I only had time for 6 hours or so on a side. They came out amazingly well.IMG_3134 IMG_3135
