Easy No-Cook Vanilla Cinnamon Granola

by | Recipes and Meal Ideas

Granola is a great way to kick start your energy for the day! This one has all the good stuff. If you have a nut allergy, just replace walnuts with sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds.

  • 1 cup walnuts, raw, chopped
  • 12 dates, Medjool, pitted and chopped
  • 1 cup oats, rolled (gluten-free if necessary)
  • 1/4 cup coconut flakes, unsweetened
  • 1 Tbs chia seeds
  • 1 Tbs hemp seeds
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon, ground
  • salt, to taste


  1. Pit and chop dates


  1. Add walnuts to food processor and pulse until roughly chopped
  2. Add dates and pulse until combined with walnuts
  3. Add balance of ingredients and pulse until combined
  4. Add a few pinches of salt if desired
  5. Pour onto baking sheet and separate with fingers
  6. Let air dry for about four hours

Pecans work well in place of walnuts here.
