Ginger and Almond Rawnola

I haven’t been able to post for a while as I have been so busy with a quick trip to Oslo and preparing for my pop-up breakfast at Deli Cafe Maya.  Whilst it has been lots of work and days of nervous anticipation, I have been so pleased with all the positive feedback I have received.  One of my menu options this week is yoghurt with a berry and vanilla compote, topped with ginger and almond rawnola.  I am a big fan of rawnola.  It is not as sweet as normal granola, it is far healthier and I think you can really taste all the ingredients when they are not covered in sugar or syrup.  The recipe below is for a ginger and almond version, but you can easily switch up the ingredients to put your own twist on this new favourite!

Ginger and Almond Rawnola

200 g soft dates

100 g oats

3 tsp ginger

25 g desiccated coconut

25 g mixed pumpkin and sunflower seeds

50 g dried cranberries

50 g whole almonds

Place the dates, oats and whole almonds into a food processor and pulse until the mixture forms a rough crumble.  If your dates are a little dry, you may need to add a few drops of water to help the mix form into a granola type of crumble.  Mix in the ginger, cranberries, seeds and coconut.  Store in an airtight container for up to a week, preferably in the fridge.
