Raw Granola Recipe – Tangy Brazil Pine Nut

When I first transitioned to a high raw diet, I was coming off a very traditional western diet that involved very heavy, processed white carb breakfasts. My standard breakfast was either cereal or a full english. Needless to say, it wasn’t serving me. However, I had become incredibly accustomed to having a very large meal in the morning, and mentally, thought that I still needed a big filling breakfast in the morning. I now know this not to be true. In fact I find the morning the best time to have very light foods. But in my transition process, it was very helpful to be able to keep eating a similar type of meal at the start of every day, but have it be raw and healthy. So I am a huge fan of Raw Granola Recipes. They have a special place in my heart.


The Tangy Brazil Pine Nut Raw Granola Recipe

Until doing some nutritional research for this article, I thought that this particular raw granola recipe was especially awesome because I was under the impression that Brazil Nuts don’t require soaking because they are low in enzyme inhibitors. The research I’ve just done indicates that this is not the case. Shiiiiit. I can’t remember now how I came to believe that Brazil Nuts are low in enzyme inhibitors and phytic Acid, which are nature’s natural defense systems for nuts and seeds. They basically make them difficult to digest, so that animals don’t want to eat them. Makes sense. If you want to read a great, in depth article about the effect of phytic acid in the human body, check this out. Anyhow, apparently Brazil Nuts do need to be soaked. Which breaks my heart, because they were my go to nut when I forget to soak nuts the night before.

Alas, Pine Nuts definitely do not need soaking, and this information is very consistent across the web. The other two nuts that are commonly said to not require soaking, pistachios and macadamia nuts, also seem to have differing opinions across the web. Hemp Seeds are pretty universally agreed upon to not require soaking. So my conclusion from this new research is that I will soak all nuts except Pine Nuts, and all seeds except Hemp Seeds. And That’s That!

Back to the food. So I thought this Brazil Pine Nut Raw Granola Recipe didn’t require soaking, so it could be made instantly. It still can, but it isn’t very healthy to eat lots of unsoaked nuts and seeds, and I pretty much don’t eat any of them these days. Except for Brazil Nuts. Not anymore though!

So I recommend soaking and dehydrating the brazil nuts for this recipe. I even usually do the same with the pine nuts, just to activate them and make them healthier, but it’s not necessary. I almost always soak my nuts overnight, and then it only takes a couple hours to dehydrate them.

Raw Granola Recipe – Tangy Brazil Pine Nut


  • ¾ cup Brazil Nuts (soaked & dehydrated)
  • ½ cup Pine Nuts
  • A Pinch of Salt
  • ¼ cup Cranberries
  • ¼ cup Chopped Figs
  • ½ tsp Cinnamon


  1. Blitz Nuts in food processor until desired size is achieved. If you want a granola with big chunks you may want to just blitz all the ingredients together. Or you could add some of the nuts after blitzing most of the ingredients. Do you like big chunks in your granola?
  2. Add remaining ingredients and blitz until mixed.
  3. Serve with raw nut milk or granola. Pictured here with a Liquid raw chocolate smoothie/milk that I made for the music video shoot of my song All We Do (Is Make Raw Chocolate). It was mainly used to pour on people for one of the best scenes in the video (out soon), but I'm glad some ended up in my belly because it was delicious! Raw Chocolate Milk is pretty easy to make, just add some cacao powder to a nut milk. Here's an interesting recipe with Maca Powder in it.

Makes 2 small to medium bowls of granola.
