LLN Grain Free Granola


Makes: 4.5 Cups

Serves: 8

LLN Grain Free Granola


  • 1 cup raw almonds 
  • 1/2 cup walnuts 
  • 1/2 cup raw macadamias 
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds 
  • 1/2 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds) 
  • 1/2 cup organic shredded coconut 
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil, melted 
  • 2 Tbsp natural sweetener of choice (honey, maple, rice malt; optional) 
  • 1 tsp organic vanilla powder 
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon 
  • 1/2 cup organic dried fruit of choice (optional)


  1. Soak your nuts and seeds overnight in separate bowls with enough water to cover. Soak hard nuts (almonds, macadamias for 6- 8 hours and softer nuts and seeds (walnuts, sunflower seeds and pepitas for 4-6 hours). 
  2. Drain and rinse soaked nuts and seeds well. Drain and place onto paper towel to absorb remaining water to get rid of excess moisture. 
  3. Transfer half the amount of nuts and seeds to a food processor or blender and pulse to roughly chop (or roughly chop by hand). 
  4. In a large mixing bowl combine chopped nuts and seeds, whole nuts and seeds, coconut, coconut oil, natural sweetener, vanilla and cinnamon. 
  5. Transfer granola onto the lined dehydrator trays. Spread evenly in one layer across trays. 
  6. Place into your dehydrator (low setting) for 12-18 hours until crisp. Or use a higher setting for 8-10 hours. (Follow the dehydrators instructions). 
  7. Once you are happy with the crispness of the granola, allow to completely cool. Mix through dried fruit and store in air tight glass containers (glass will keep it fresh and crisp). 
  8. Serve as is, with fruit, yoghurt or plant-based milk. Notes: You can make your own preservative free, natural dried fruit using the Sedona Dehydrator.
