Servings: 20
Preparation Time: 30 minutes

  • 1 cup whole dates, pitted
  • 2 large bananas
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1 lb. old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 lb. unsweetened coconut (flakes or chips)
  • 1 lb. walnuts, chopped
  • 1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 2 cup golden raisins

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.

In a blender, combine dates, bananas, cinnamon and water. Blend until smooth. Add more water a tablespoon at a time if mixture is too thick.

In a large bowl, mix together oats and date mixture until coated, breaking up very large clusters. Stir in dried coconut.

Bake in a thin layer on a baking sheet (must be done in small batches), stirring occasionally to desired crunchiness. About 1 to 1.5 hours.

Remove from oven and cool. Stir in walnuts, pumpkin seeds, almonds and raisins. Store in an airtight container.

Additional stir in ideas: Dried fruits or a combination of blueberries, strawberries, cherries, cranberries, etc.

I like this recipe because there is no added sweetener of any kind. This is a Daniel Fast friendly recipe. How about adding some coconut oil?

Feel free. Try adding the coconut oil in with the date mixture in the beginning.
