Recipe Directions

  • 1. Process almonds, dates and water. (You don't need them to be totally processed, just process well enough--similar to how you'd process to make a raw pie crust.) You should see smallish chunks of dates and almonds.
  • 2. Transfer almond/date/water mixture into a big mixing bowl.
  • 3. Add everything else to the big mixing bowl and just mix with a spoon or even your hands.
  • 4. Spread granola bars into two glass dishes. (This is a big recipe, so you'll probably want to put it into two separate dishes or else it'll be really thick in one dish.)
  • 5. These raw granola bars can be eaten as is--undehydrated (taste more like brownies then) or you can cut and dehydrate these raw granola bars to make a more traditional crunchy granola bar. Perhaps leave one dish moist and dehydrate the other! Best of both worlds :)

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Raw granola bars are so tasty. I should really make them more often!

Sorry for posting a raw granola bar recipe that calls for so many ingredients, I realize that it goes against my "totally simple" rule... But I just made this recipe up and the flavor is so nice so I wanted to share these raw granola bars with you all!

Plus, it is actually pretty easy once you get past the first food processing bit.

This raw granola bar recipe would actually make a perfect pie crust or raw cake base as well. It's got the standard raw goody texture. :) But the flavor is really unique--in a good way!

If I dehydrate them how should I store them and for how long. I'm taking a 6 week road trip and am looking for food to take with me.

Hi Rebecca! To store for that long you need to make sure there is NO moisture left in them. Maybe go for like 20 hours at the highest heat you are comfortable with, then store in an airtight container

I liked it slightly dehydrated. It gave the "grawnola" a chewy and crunchy texture.

Hi Crystal, you can use wheat germ instead of the flax. Also, perhaps you can try ground or whole chia seed instead as well.

Hope this helps!

Hi Chrystaline - glad you are enjoying them! They are a bit of work to put together but oh so good, right?

Do you dehydrate them in the pan, or spread them on a sheet first?

Will Steel cut oat groats work instead if buckwheat?

Hi Mike! Dehydrating - no pan, just spread them on parchment paper or Teflexx sheets

steel cut oats instead of buckwheat groats? yes, I say give that a go

Hi, thanks for sharing your recepies! You give me soo much inspiration! I'll try to do these bars when I (finally) get my Sedona, but I can't eat wheat germs and I don't know what to use as a substitute?

Hi Sara, you can use ground flaxseed (aka flaxseel meal) instead

I'm so happy, grateful and impressed that you always seem to take the time to answer all questions!
There is no Swedish raw food blogs that can compare with yours, so I'm thrilled that I found yours and will test a lots of your recipes this summer. I'll try to involve my daughters (12 and 13 years) in the (un-)cooking... :-)
