I created a simple rawnola recipe with a few things I had in my pantry – chopped dates, rolled oats, dried coconut, walnuts, chia seeds, ground flax, and pumpkin seeds. This tasty combo gets sweetness from medjool dates and plenty of crunch from the nuts and seeds. It was perfect atop this Silk Oat Yeah Mixed Berry yogurt, but I think this would also be delicious served like cereal, with a bit of almond milk (or whatever plant milk you prefer).
Here's my super-simple recipe!
Yields about 1.5 cups
6 medjool dates, pitted and chopped
1 cup rolled oats
4 Tbsp. dried unsweetened coconut
4 Tbsp. raw, chopped walnuts
2 Tbsp. raw pumpkin seeds
2 Tbsp. chia seeds
1 Tbsp. ground flax seed
Stir everything to combine! Since the dates tend to stick together, I find it's necessary to get your hands into the mix and separate date bits, making sure they get good and coated with oat dust. That helps them stay separated. Serve over vegan yogurt or with plant milk.
