Happy new year and let’s get healthy right now. Everyone always asks me what I have for breakfast? And honestly, I love a good green juice every morning for Breakfast.  But sometimes I want some substance, I want to chew,  and so on those mornings When I really want a hardy dish, I like to make my fresh fruit granola. It’s really good. Today we’re going to make it with walnuts, but you can make it with almonds, sunflower seeds, whatever kind of nut or seed of your choice. You just want to make sure you use two cups. So today we are going to use some walnuts… and you can see my screen on the top. I just ordered this from Amazon. And so you always want to soak your nuts to get all the enzyme inhibitors off the nuts. A lot of people say, gosh, I can’t really digest nuts. They’re hard on my stomach. And the reason why is because they didn’t soak all the enzyme inhibitors off. So that’s always something you want to do overnight. Ideally, a minimum of two hours, but eight to twelve hours is always going to be better. So I’m going to have Megan  strain this water off here and rinse these off. And then we’re going to get started. We’re  going to put these in the Vitamix and get some granola going. So thank you Megan. Now we’re going to cut up six cups of apples. You can use whatever fruit of your choice.You can use pears, berries, whatever you like. I like apples personally because they’re in season now. And I just love the way apples tastes in our granola.

Courtney and Megan sing! : Courtney Uncooked

Courtney: Alright, so we got our apples chopped up and we’ve strained and soaked our nuts. Got all the ingredients ready. So I’m going to put Megan to work. So first we’re going to combine, in our Vitamix, two cups of the nuts or seed of your choice. And our choice today is walnut. So we’re going to give you two cups of those, Megan. Then we’re going to put these dates in there as well. And you can just use your fingers to strain the water off. And then we’re going to put the dates in there.

Megan: Why do you soak the dates?

Courtney: You’re just soaking those to soften them, to make them easier for the Vitamix to blend. They’re not like the nuts. You’re not getting off any enzyme inhibitors or anything like that. You just want to make it easier for our buddy, the Vitamix. Just going to give you your cinnamon…

Megan: One teaspoon of cinnamon, fourth of a teaspoon of nutmeg.

Courtney: Just going to put the lid on here. Really dig that down.

Megan: See that guys, there’s a method to this.

Courtney: Don’t be scared. Get in there.

Megan: Don’t put your hands in there though.

Courtney: All right, so that’s probably good. And then we’re going to put that in a Bowl on its own. Empty this whole mixture out in the bowl. And then we’re going to chop up the apples in the Vitamix. After we chop up all the apples in the Vitamix, we’re going to combine everything with our raisins and Voila! We’re going to have the most delicious fresh fruit granola you’ve ever tried!  And if you leave a little bit of nuts in The Vitamix, it is okay, because it’s all going to be in the granola together. We’re all friends here, so it’s alright. Don’t be too hard on yourself. Okay, so now we’re just going to put the apples right in there. Why don’t you try it Megan? Just go around the outside. Not in the middle. Yeah, just go down the outside, don’t be scared. Get them all in there, only on the outside. So you’re bringing it in just outside cause you don’t want to hit the blade. Just keep it on the outside. So you just want to do it until big pieces are gone. All right, that was really good. I’m just going to let you pour that mixture into our nuts, dates, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Just going to pour the apples on there and then I’m going to strain these raisins. So everything we use is organic, gluten free, mostly raw. Oops! Made a little mess there.

Megan: Actually I might just take some of this.

Courtney: Look how nice that looks. And you can garnish it with some raisins on the top too if you want. But let’s just see what she thinks. Smells so good. If you could smell it, it’s just great.

Megan: We’ll feed it to you.

Courtney: Wouldn’t you like that? Honestly, what do you think? You like it?

Megan: It’s really good.

Courtney: Okay, cool. So this is our fresh fruit granola. Absolutely delicious. Remember to like, subscribe, follow me, and subscribe to my YouTube. Make sure you hit that notification bell and I’lll be happy to send you this recipe for free. That’s right. For free.
