Ingredients
  • 2 cups raw Brazil nuts, chopped (just buzz them up in the food processor to chop)
  • 2 cups raw almonds, chopped (just buzz them up in the food processor to chop)
  • 1 tbsp. sea salt (For soaking the nuts. Please see step 1)
  • 2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • ½ cup melted coconut oil
  • 1-3 tbsp. raw honey (Depending on how sweet your strawberries are. When in season they probably won’t even need this! Mine were definitely not in season yet and I did add a few TB of the honey.)
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups pureed strawberries (You will need a little over 2lbs of strawberries between this puree and the chopped strawberries in the next line.)
  • 2 cups sliced or chopped strawberries (Depending on how big you want the strawberry chunks in your cereal)
Instructions
  1. Before you make the cereal, you will want to soak your nuts or seeds to make them easier to digest. Put the chopped nuts in a medium bowl with the sea salt and fill the bowl with water until the nut mixture is covered completely. Let the bowl sit in a warm spot in your kitchen 8-12 hours (It is pretty cold where I live so I set them under the light in my oven in the winter). After soaking, simply strain out the water in a fine mesh strainer and dump the nut mixture into a large mixing bowl to combine the rest of the ingredients. **I soaked my nuts during the day and then got the granola into the dehydrator over night. You could also soak the nuts overnight and get them into the dehydrator during the day.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients except the chopped strawberries, to the nut mixture in the large mixing bowl, and combine well.
  3. Fold in the chopped strawberries.
  4. Spread the granola mixture on your dehydrator trays and dry out according to your machine. I did mine at 135 degrees overnight. If you don’t have a dehydrator, you can still make this! Set your oven at the lowest temp and dry out over a few hours – you will want to do this during the day so you can keep an eye on them and stir the granola around a bit.
  5. After the granola is dryed out, let it cool to room temperature, and then break it apart into the size pieces you want. I keep some bigger as that is how my hubby likes it for his yogurt breakfast at work. And I keep some quite small since I have little mouths eating it.
