1 1/2 cups soaked almonds
1/2 cup soaked sunflower seeds
1/2 cup soaked whole buckwheat
5 cups grated apple, (about 7 small apples), any kind
1/2 cup pureed dates (about 7 large dates) soaked for about 15 minutes
1/2 cup dried cranberries (or other dried fruit)
1/2 cup dry coconut flakes
1/2 cup agave nectar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/3 teaspoon salt
Rinse and drain the seeds. Place in food processor and quickly chop to reduce size of seeds only. Place mixture into large bowl. Grate apples, add to nut mixture. Puree dates in food process with the "S" blade attachment, if the dates are soaked for a short time (not too much or they'll be too soggy) it helps this process, if you forgot to soak the dates, add a little apple while pureeing, it will help. Add all the ingredients to the nut mixture and stir.
Prepare 2 dehydrator trays with Teflex sheets. Place 1/2 the mixture on each sheet, use your hands or a spreader to spread approx 3/8 inch thick. The mixture is moist, but that's a good thing, in the end it is wonderful and chewy. If you like it crunchy, use less apple. Dehydrate at 145 for 1 hour and then reduce temperature to 115 until done. When your granola is dry enough to peel off the Teflex sheets, do so and place onto the grid sheets. Continue to dehydrate until dry. Approx. drying time 48 hours...
