METHOD

  
Blend together all the paste ingredients and put in a large bowl to one side. Add all the other ingredients to a food processor and process on the pulse setting until the right consistency is reached – you do not want to process these too much. Combine both mixtures by folding in the paste using a wooden spoon or your hands. Transfer the granola mix onto trays and dehydrate on 40 for 8 hours. If you do not have a dehydrator you can use a preheated oven on 50 with the door ajar for at least 4 hours or until dry. Store in an air-tight glass jar.

 

HOW TO SERVE 

Serve with chilled almond milk and stir in 1 spoon of Ultimate Oil Blend.
