Raw Carrot Cake Granola. . .a healthy breakfast made to comfort you, like a cup of tea and a slice of carrot cake.
It seemed like a great idea to make a raw breakfast out of a cake recipe, so the Raw Carrot Cake Granola was born.
If you’re reading this when the temperatures are cooler, your mind, like mine, may go to more warming foods.
Lots of people ask me about eating cooked foods, rather than raw foods, in autumn and winter. Because who doesn’t want that hug-in-a-mug feeling only a good soup, stew or cup of tea can give you? I think it’s definitely a good idea, if that’s what your body is asking for.
Initially I was surprised though, because I’d never related bodily warmth with warm foods, but now I totally get it.
However, if you still want to get some good, nourishing raw foods in during autumn and winter, whilst also feeling comforted, what do you do?
Adding spices to your raw food recipes are the way to go, because they’ll warm you from the inside. This Raw Carrot Cake Granola has you covered here.
Of course, you could serve this raw granola with some homemade almond milk, or you could buy the healthiest store-bought version of any nut, seed or grain milk.
