Okay, you guys seriously this has to be the BEST rawnola! I honestly eat it every day (no joke) and love how it only has 3-ingredients. Super simple & easy, I just make it in big batches and keep it mason jars. Best. Snack. Ever. I’ve even made a step-by-step video showing you how to make it!
This week I’ve been trying to focus on eating raw vegan food. It’s a great way to refresh and rehydrate your body, and it’s fun to play around with new flavors & ingredients. In the video below, see how easy it is to make different variations of this delicious rawnola. I added in a tbsp coconut sugar and used 1 cup of oats in place of buckwheat groats.
For anyone who doesn’t know, the raw vegan lifestyle involves eating plant-based foods that have not been cooked about 118 degrees Fahrenheit. I’m here to tell you this does not mean only having juices & smoothies! I believe you should eat what makes you healthiest and happiest, and raw vegan food can be incredibly fun and nourishing.
Now on the the rawnola! Rawnola has really caught on lately (raw + granola = rawnola). And I am most definitely a fan. You can top your smoothie or acai bowl with it, eat it as a snack, or take it for an on-the-go breakfast.
It’s made with only 3 ingredients: dates, rolled oats, and buckwheat groats. That’s it, so easy I could make it blindfolded. I sometimes throw in a tablespoon or two of cinnamon. Who else puts cinnamon on absolutely everything?
The recipe is inspired by the lovely, fellow plant-based foodie Lonijane (@lonijane). I tweaked it a little to my liking. If you try my recipe, please share with me on Instagram @asunshinemission because I love knowing what you all think. Plus, your photos make me smile!
It’s raw, vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, nut-free & free of refined sugar. And it’s completely allergy-friendly so anyone can enjoy it.
- 1/2 cup gluten-free rolled oats

- a dash of cinnamon (optional)
- Soak dates in warm water for 5-10 minutes. If your dates are already soft, skip this step.
