Hemp Granola

Hemp granola with almond milk in a white bowl on a wooden background

A classic raw breakfast with a high protein twist.
Hemp seeds are around 30% protein (depending on who you listen to), and adding your favourite protein powder is an option here for an extra protein boost, PLUS the nut milk will only add to that protein profile.

The bonus is that this breakfast is also delicious, easy to make, keeps well and the whole family will love it.

  1. Hi! Can I use cacao powder instead of vanilla protein powder?? I don’t have it. If I can, would it be the same ratio? Thank you!

    • Yes you can certainly do that with the same amount, taste and see how you like it. Cacao powder usually needs extra sweetener, so it’s going to be personal taste.

  2. Sounds delicious. Any substitutes for lucuma? Is it used for sweetening or for health benefits?

    • Hey Carole, it’s used for taste, and a little for sweetening. You can leave it out or use maca or mesquite, which are different in taste, but will work.

  3. Love, love, love your recipes…..thank you! Wondering if there could be an easy pdf link to print them out on one sheet of paper with all pertinent info…..would be great!

  4. What’s the difference between shelled hemp seeds and hemp seeds? I have used hemp seeds does it not good?

    • Shelled hemp seeds are sometimes labelled as ‘hemp seeds’, so you may have used the correct ones. You know about it if you’d used unshelled ones in this recipe, because the shells are so hard 🙂

  5. Hi. Is your ingredient “lacuma” a typo for “lucuma”? Also, for “nibs” do you mean “cacao” nibs? Thank you.

  6. Hi Russel thanks for this new recipie, however I was wondering, why add water then dehydrate. Why not just store as is?

    • You mean put all the ingredients together and then don’t add water? If you do that you’ll have a very different consistency – it’ll just be a bunch of crumbled ingredients like a muesli, rather than a cereal with all the ingredients bound together.
