An appetizing Nutty Raisin Bran Flakes Recipe in a beautiful red bowl

~ raw, vegan, gluten-free ~

How do you wake up in the morning?  Do you roll out of bed so slow that you flop onto the floor, jolting yourself awake?  Do you hit snooze three times?  Do you bounce out of bed ready to take on the day?  I have known some people who wake up so grumpy that it was in your interest and safety to clear a path that leads them straight to the coffee pot.

I once had a roommate that would hit snooze so many times that she would end up flying out of the apartment, dressing, doing her makeup and hair…. while driving! She did this every day. It exhausted me just to witness it.  These days I am blessed to wake up next to my husband who always wakes up happy, snuggly, and smiley.

Rituals set your day in motion.

If you are always miserable, unhappy, grumpy, and (insert adjective)… it could possibly be due to the rituals that you have put in place, and may not even be aware of them.  Do you stay up to0 late regardless of how early you need to get up in the morning?  Does this lead to oversleeping, causing your day to start out rushed and hectic?  Are you addicted to caffeine and without that morning jolt, you can’t even squeak out a smile. How we start the day can often dictate how the rest of the day is going to go and even end.

The seeds you sew, are the rewards you will reap.

Mornings can be one of the most sacred moments of the day.  The air is quiet, and still, the only sounds found within the house come from the gentle hum of the refrigerator, and the birds are just starting to fill the air with their songs.  The rituals that you create plant seeds and as the day progresses you can reap the rewards.

Through the simple practice of honoring yourself each morning, you can take your life to a whole new level.   To create this precious time for yourself, you might have to do some serious thinking and adjusting… but aren’t YOU worth it.

Homemade fresh raw almond milk with almondsIngredients:


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, oat flour, ground pecans, and salt.
  2. Add the honey and almond milk.  Mix with a fork.
  3. Pour the batter onto a non-stick sheet that comes with the dehydrator.
    • You can use parchment paper but not wax (food will stick).
  4. With an off-set spatula, spread the batter from one edge to another.
    • Don’t worry about getting batter on the sides of the tray.  Once done spreading you can wipe it clean with a paper towel.
  5. Dehydrate at 145 degrees (F) for 1 hour, then reduce to 115 degrees (F) for around 4 hours or until it is dry enough to flip over onto a mesh sheet, gently peeling back the non-stick sheet.
  6. Continue to dry until crispy.  Mine took a total of 24 hours, but the humidity in the ambient air has been high this time of year.
  7. Gently break into small random sized pieces to create the flakes.
  8. Store in an airtight container in the pantry for 2-4 weeks.  I froze a batch and thoroughly enjoyed it a few months later.
  9. This cereal passed my 10-minute test – meaning it still had crunch after sitting in almond milk for 10 minutes.
  10. Enjoy.

    Hi, it’s so funny my mom was talking about if there was a recipe for raw bran flakes and lord and behold, I get an email from you this morning on raw Bran flake lol. My question to you is being that I’m a raw vegan can I substitute the honey with another sweetener?
    Thank you and God Bless

    • amie-sue says:

      I love it when things like that happen. :) Yes, you can use any liquid sweetener that you wish Nina. Enjoy and have a great day, amie sue

    You should open a raw cooking school or offer raw cooking classes – I’d be on the 1st flight out to attend!
    Question: can raw buckwheat flour be substituted in this & most of your recipes where oat flour is called for? I can’t eat oats, but I’d really like to make this. Thanks & have a great Sunday!

    • amie-sue says:

      That is so sweet of you Andrea… until then, my site will have to continue to be my outlet to share my passion and experience with others. :)

      Regarding your question about using buckwheat flour instead of oats… for the most part yes. Do keep in mind that it will alter the end flavors of the recipes I created which might not be a bad thing, just different. :)

      Blessings! amie sue

    What flashed into my mind as soon as I saw this –
    How about making the dough thicker and putting it through a spaghetti disc, then drying, thus getting a pretty good approximation of All Bran?

    • amie-sue says:

      Good morning Teri. I love the idea but I don’t feel that the “dough/batter” wouldn’t hold up to such a pressing and hold together. If you try it, let me know. :) amie sue

  4. V says:

    It looks wonderful, but I don’t own a dehydrator. Is oven baking an option?


    • amie-sue says:

      Hello V,

      I haven’t tried it in the oven so I can’t really give you much instruction on it. Other than if you do give it a go… I might start the temp at 350 degrees (F) and keep a close eye on it, perhaps even flipping it part way through. If you try it, let me know what your experience was. :) Blessings, amie sue

    I am so happy that you are in my life. all your recipes I had tried I just adored. Hallo from Croatia:)

    I’m thinking about buying a dehydrator – What features do you like to see in a dehydrator? Any recommendations?

    • amie-sue says:

      You won’t regret the investment Kristal. It will open a whole new door to your creativity in the kitchen. I personally, recommend Excalibur. I have own many of them, some being at least 7 years old and they are still holding strong. I have tested a few others and always come back to this brand. Easy to clean, square trays which make it easy to make crackers and fruit leathers, comes with a timer, the blower is on the back of the unit instead of the bottom which means you don’t have to rotate trays during the drying process. If you have any further detailed questions just let me know. Here is a link for the ones that I have.


      P.S. – you do need to order the non-stick sheets separately and you will want those. amie sue :)
