Chewy raw granola recipe:
- vegan 
- hclf (high carb low fat) 
- no refines sugars, additives or oils - only natural ingredients
- really healthy and tastes even better than store - bought granola 
- super chewy and sweet with a delicious tropical twist from the coconut flakes
- great as a healthy snack, over smoothies, yoghurt, with plant-based milk, fruits or just pure like it is 

-> Decided to publish the recipe, because of quite many requests, which I received in the last days about the raw granola from one of my smoothie pictures. Thank you for the interest! :)
-> Feel free to give me some feedback, would make me really happy! :)

Ingredients (remotely based on a recipe by Loni Jane):
• around 12 fresh dates (pitted)
• 60 g oats 
• 60 g toasted coconut flakes 
• some cinnamon 
• toasted buckwheat for more crunch (optional) 
• some peanut butter if you feel really decadent (optional)
• vanilla drops (optional)

- mix all the dry ingredients together in a small bowl 
- cut the fresh dates into small/bite size pieces 
- put the dates and other ingredients into your blender and pulse until the texture gets granola - like (small chunks) and everything is mixed together well
- if you like it more chewy - add some more dates or PB
- store your delicious granola in a pretty box in the fridge or at the cool, dark place 
- enjoy this beauty up there and tell your friends/family about it! :)

Vegan Chocolate Mango Coconut Cream Pie (Aka, Pie That’s Actually Good For You).

I mean. What is there to say? It’s finally arrived: Vegan Chocolate Mango Coconut Cream Pie Day!!!

It’s a cream pie that actually good for you. It’s vegan. It has almost no refined sugar. It’s almost raw, for gosh sakes. It’s light and fluffy and creamy and dreamy and so delicious you’ll be hard pressed to put down your spoon.

It’s deep, dark, chocolatey, packed with superfood protein, and bursting with healthy fats, proteins, and brain food. YUP, I AM TALKING ABOUT A CREAM PIE. How excited are you?

What’s on top? Pure coconut cream whipped with mango, sweetened with a touch of maple and brown sugar. Toasted coconut flakes. Cacao nibs.

To finish it all off—a perfectly simple salty-sweet graham cracker crust. YOU GUYS. Are we ever going to eat anything else?

Probably not. Get the recipe here!
