Hey my loves ♥
Today I am sharing my current ADDICTION with you! And when I say addiction I really mean it. Every time I make a batch of my rawnola it is usually gone in a day or two – it is that good!
This recipe is inspired by one of my all time favorite “instagrammers”: Loni Jane. I bet most of you already know her. She is a stunning mom of the cutest baby (soon two) and is definitely an incredibly inspiring ambassador for an abundant vegan lifestyle, high in healthy carbs. Here is a link to her beautiful instagram page. This year she released her beautiful recipe ebook Feel The Lean – I highly recommend to check it out as well.
If you ask me for my favorite foods dates and oats are definitely under the top 10! But combined with coconut flakes into a chunky crunchy granola? YES PLEASE!
This rawnola taste so good on nicecream (blended frozen bananas) or smoothie bowls or you can even make some bliss balls with it for a snack. I looove this recipe because it is so simple to make and you can change the taste up so easily but just adding different dried fruits.
I tried a few different versions of this already and today I am going to show you my 3 favorites.
For the base recipe you need:
- 8 pitted medjool dates
- about 1 cup of raw oats
- 1 tbsp of coconut flakes
- optional: 1 tbsp of coconut sugar
Simply put all the ingredients into a high speed blender or food processor and pulse blend until combined. I like mine quite chunky so I don’t blend for too long.
Mango Coconut Rawnola
This is probably my favorite of these 3 recipes. It taste so nice on açai bowls with some chopped up banana and mango and maybe even some passionfruit.
How to? – Simply add 1 handful of dried mango to the base recipe! I also use a bit more coconut flakes for this one – so tropical! ♥
BTW: I like to order my dried fruits and dates in bulk from KORO DROGERIE. The medjool dates and dried mango are the BEST!!!
With the code JIL you get 5% off your order.
Choco Coco Rawnola
Have you ever tried chocolate nicecream? It’s so simple: just freeze a few chopped up bananas over night, blend them with a tiny bit of water or add 1 fresh banana and 1-2 tbsp of raw cacao or carob powder. YUM! That is already heavenly but this Choco Coco Rawnola takes it to the next level!
How to? – I added 1 tbsp of the Chocolate Lover Mix by Your Superfoods, 1 tbsp of raw cacao nibs and 1 tbsp of cacao powder.
Cherry Chocolate Rawnola
This one is a Christmas inspired version and almost too good to eat it with anything else. I might have to make a big batch of this and surprise my family with these sweet chocolaty treat. And the best is: It is actually good for you!
How to? – Simply add 1 cup of dried sweet cherries, 1 tsp of cinnamon and 1 heaped tbsp of cacao powder. I didn’t use the coconut flakes for this one but I bet some almonds or pecans would fit really nice.
I filmed a recipe video for this one:
Let me know if you try one of these rawnola recipes – or maybe even all of them?! But be careful: like I said it is highly addictive haha 🙂
Have fun in the kitchen!
Much love, J ♥
