Ginger Peach Granola

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites
This granola has turned into a staple in our household.  I keep a large glass container of it on the kitchen island and I must hear the lid come off it at least 5x a day!  Ginger Peach Granola is filled with a mouthful of complex flavors that just keeps you coming back for more.  You can eat it as a walk-by snack, press it into a bar shape for on the go eating or pour a fresh nut milk over it and have it for breakfast.  No matter what delivery form your choose for yourself, you won’t be disappointed!
Ingredients:
  • 5 cups apples cored and chopped (use organic)
  • 1 1/2 cups majool dates, seeded
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup (not raw, see below)
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tsp ginger powder
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 cups raw almonds, soaked 4 hours or more
  • 3 cups raw pecans, soaked 2 hours or more
  • 1 cup raw pumpkin seeds soaked 2 hours or more
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 2 cups dried peach
Preparation:
  1. In a food processor, place the fresh apples, dates, maple syrup, lemon juice, vanilla, cinnamon, salt and grind until completely smooth.  Transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl.
  2. Drain and rinse the nuts and seeds.  Add the almonds, pecans, and pumpkin seeds to the food processor.  Coarsely chop the nuts and seeds in a few quick pulses.  Add them to the bowl with the apple mixture.
  3. Now add the cranberries / raisins  / dried peaches and combine well.
  4. Spread the granola out onto the teflex sheets that comes with your dehydrator.
  5. Dry at 105 degrees for 16-24 hours.  I like my granola more chewy so I don’t dry it as long.  If you want it to be really dry, go for maximum length of time.  Do keep in mind that as the granola cools, it gets a bit harder.  Remember also that if you leave more moisture in your granola it will have a shorter shelf life.
  6. Store in an air-tight container.  If you store it in the fridge, it will extend the self-life if that is a concern.  It freezes beautifully as well.

Tips:
  • This batch made 4 dehydrator trays worth.
  • Feel free to add your own mix of nuts and dried fruits if you want!
  • If you want to keep this recipe completely raw,  you can use agave, honey, or yacon as replacements to the maple.  The maple is a richer flavor so I personally would use yacon.  Click here to learn about it.

    Once again, a big “yum” from my taste buds!

    Amie Sue, since you’re not likely to adopt me (and thereby FEED me on a regular basis)…how do you feel about women? Surely Bob wouldn’t be TOO jealous of you having a girlfriend. ;)
