Raw Caramel Pecan Peach Granola

After I made my last batch of Granola, I promised Eric I would make another batch soon because he loved it so much.  So I had to get on it fast, because I always keep my word on things like that.  I was kind of excited about it too because it sounded good to me also and I was craving it.  I decided to go the non-chocolate route this time though, because I did chocolate last time.

This time it was going to be caramel.  Well, not actual caramel.  But you know how brown sugar tastes like caramel?  Well so does maple syrup, coconut sugar and pecan butter with a dash of vanilla.  Which is what I ended up making for my base to coat the oats with instead of the usual coconut oil etc.

I added in some pecans, chia seeds, coconut, and lastly peaches.  Because peaches just seemed like they belonged in this recipe, and many times I try to sneak some fruit in.  This was going to be raw granola, because I felt that my last granola got a little too toasty in the oven and I wanted to preserve the nutrients in the ingredients.

It tasted amazing before I put it in to dehydrate and it smelled even better while it dried.  I awoke to the happiest aroma!  This granola was crave worthy.  Eric approved as well, even though he is a chocolate kind of guy caramel has a place in his heart too.

    This looks fantastic. Do you have oven instructions for those of us that don't own a dehydrator (yet!)? Thanks in advance! :)

      You will have to dry it in the oven at the lowest temperature. Ideally it should be kept below 115F to stay raw, but if you are not concerned about that, just a low oven temp, (like 150F or so), and it will get done a lot faster than the dehydrator.

    This looks delish. I have never made raw muesli before. Must have a go at making this :)
