    Ingredients

    • 3 Cups of Rolled (not instant!) oats
    • 1/2 cup of peanut butter/cashew butter + 1 additional generous Tablespoon
    • 1/2 cup of canadian maple syrup or good quality honey
    • 1 1/2 cups of almonds , chopped in half's
    • Optional: 1 cup of chopped dates
    • Optional: 1/2 cup of shredded coconut

    Directions

    1. Grab a pot and put the heat on lowest.
    2. Once pot is hot, slather in the maple/honey and nut butter into the pot. Keep stirring until it binds together into one holy union and runs like melted chocolate.
    3. Chop up the almonds and throw them in a mixing bowl with the rest of the ingredients. Mix them together.
    4. Stir in the Mixed Sauce you have ready in the pot to the mixing bowl. Mix everything together with your fragile and delicate hands.
    5. Once you have it mixed really well and formed into a thick batter; grab a baking sheet and line any container you like with the paper. Lastly just fill the container with the granola batter and press it into the corners and sides so that it fits evenly into the container.
    6. Refrigerate for ed-least 7 hours, OR for quick setting freeze for 3 hours to set then switch it to the fridge so it doesn't freeze.

    Tip

    The quality of a date makes a huge impact on any dish where the date is not turned into a sauce or blended into a batter. Make sure to choose the best and freshest dates you can. I recommend fresh dates from the middle east. You probably won't have those dates at your local store, since Anglo stores import local rubbish. So try look for them at suspicious looking convenience stores or Arabic markets/deli's. Little fruit stores seem to always have them too if the owners are ethnic or just serious about dates. In my experience the softer,fresher and larger the date, the more it will cost you. But for raw recipes the smaller softer ones are best value. Just avoid those home-brand local supermarket contract rubbish they try promote at every large supermarket chain, and be Weary of large companies importing the "dried out and old" date batches from other companies. In other words: trust the small private sellers with dates. Best way to make this recipe healthier is to use organic GMO free oats. They taste better, look better, and pack more protein and minerals then their cheaper contenders. Finland export some of the highest quality organic GMO free oats.
