Well, Tiko, my German Shepherd puppy, and I just went for our morning walk. He needs two long walks a day now! He has so much energy, and if I don’t take him, he is S0 mischievous. Anyway, today we passed several dogs (behind their gates luckily) and a myriad of chickens and one goat (outside their fences) and on the way back, three guys leading six burros laden with grasses, and a huge hog in a front yard. And speaking of pigs, I came home hungrily to eat the raw granola I made yesterday, and it was gone! I ate it all! What a pig! Dang it.
2 c. unsweetened coconut flakes (or 1 c. coconut, 1 c. oat flakes)
1/2 c shaved raw chocolate or cacao nibs
1/4 c. almond/platano flour
1/3 c. coconut oil, melted
1/3 c. almond butter
1/3 c. sunflower seeds
1/4 c. honey (or sweetener of choice)
1 1/2 T. water/Tea
1 T. cinnamon (canela)
1 T. chia seeds
pinch raw vanilla powder
options: 1 1/2 cups almonds, 1/4 cup pepitas, raisins, dates, goji berries, any other dried fruit
Combine all ingredients and stir gently. For raw granola, dehydrate at 104 degrees 1-4 hours, or until warm. For quick and easy granola, toast in a skillet over medium-low heat for 20 minutes. For baked granola, bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Whichever way you make it, stir often! Serve with Nispero jam and banana ice cream! Use almond or any coconut/nut/oat/rice milk or tea as a breakfast cereal! Yum. Que rico!
