Almond and Fennel Honea Grain-Free Granola (Gluten-Free, Vegan)
Preheat your oven to 50°C.
Add all of the ingredients except for your seeds and goji berries into the bowl of your Ninja food processor and process on LOW in 2 second intervals until you have some fine crumbs and bigger chunks. You will need to frequently scrape down the sides with a spatula to ensure you get an even mix. Stir in your mixed seeds.
Line a baking tray with a silicone baking mat or non-stick parchment paper. Transfer your ingredients onto the baking tray and using a spatula spread the mixture thinly and evenly. Place the tray in the oven for 3 hours, be sure to rotate the mixture every 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Remove from the oven and leave to cool completely. Break up the cluster and stir in your goji berries.
Transfer into an airtight container and store for up to 2 weeks at room temperature.
Activating your nuts and seeds will remove most remnants of phytic acid and aid in activating the enzymes that assist in the digestion of nuts, this is an optional step. To activate soak them in water with a teaspoon of salt for at least 4 hours but preferably overnight. Thoroughly rinse then pat them dry with a clean tea towel and lay them out thinly and evenly on a baking tray. Dehydrate by placing them in the oven on a very low temperature (65-70 degrees), for 3-4 hours. Be sure to move them around the tray every hour.
If you’re short on time you can place in the oven at 175 °C and cook for 30 minutes, stirring every 10-30 minutes until golden brown.
