Crunchy Nut Cereal

24 03 2010
Sometimes, particularly as the weather begins to get warmer, I go on raw food kicks. This recipe is one of my favorite raw food cereals. This is a very interesting combination of raw nuts and seeds plus raw flakes that are made similar to flax crackers but slightly sweetened.  I love this cereal with almond milk and some berries. I doubled this recipe when I made it because it keeps well in an airtight container. Remember you do need some special equipment to make raw food (see my post on Raw Food Essential Equipment.) For this recipe, you will need a dehydrator.

Yields 4 cups

1 cup almonds

½ cup pecans

½ cup walnuts

1 cup sunflower seeds

2 cups water

1/8 cup maple sugar (optional) or a little stevia

1 cup golden flaxseed

2 cups water

4 dates, soaked

½ tsp cinnamon

pinch of salt

Soak almonds, pecans, walnuts, and sunflower seeds in 2 cups water for 6 to 8 hours. Rinse, drain, and chop coarsely. Toss the nut and seed mixture in a bowl with the maple sugar or stevia and a pinch of salt. Dehydrate at 105 degrees until crunchy. Set aside.

Soak flaxseed in 2 cups water for 4 hours, then drain and place in a food processor with the cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Process for several minutes to make a batter. Puree the dates in a blender with some of the soaking water. Add to the flax batter and process. Spread the batter very thinly on solid dehydrator sheets. Dry for 6 or more hours until you can turn the sheets over onto perforated dehydrator sheets. Continue drying until it is completely crispy. Crumble into small flakes. Mix these flakes with the dehydrated nut and seed mixture. Store in an airtight container or in the freezer.
