This is my favorite granola. It never lasts in my house because we go through it so quickly. Yes it does take a a while to make but it’s always worth it. It’s packed with protein and hardy spices that gets me through winter time. I eat it as cereal, with yogurt, in a smoothie bowl or as a snack when I am running out the door.


  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1/2 cup hazelnuts
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla powder
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons ginger

  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds

  1. Place all the nuts in a bowl and fill with water to soak. Add a pinch of salt to the water and cover with a clean cloth. All the nuts to soak for 6 hours or overnight.**Soaking nuts before consuming makes them easier to digest.**
  2. Once the nuts are finished soaking drain the water from the bowl with a clean towel pat the nuts dry to remove excess water.
  3. Place the nuts in a food processor and use the pulse button to chop them into small to medium pieces. (I hit the pulse button about 20 times).
  4. Remove chopped nuts from food process and place them in another bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and stir the mixture until it is combined evenly.
  5. Place granola on dehydrator sheets 1/2 inch to 1 inch high and put them in the dehydrator at about 125 for 12- 24 hours.**If you don't own a dehydrator you can place the granola on a cookie sheet in the oven on 200-225 with the door open and the fan on. About 4-6 hours or until all the water is removed from the granola and it is crunchy**
  6. Remove granola and place in an airtight container until you're ready to consume. Enjoy with yogurt, as cereal or as an on the go snack.
