Rawnola is a delicious, quick and easy vegan breakfast that’s loaded with healthy fats, probiotics, antioxidants, fiber, protein, and it’s naturally sweet! Vegan, gluten-free.
Thank you to Mariani for sponsoring today’s healthy recipe post! My opinions are always 100% honest, thank you for supporting the brands that I love and use daily.
People always ask me, “What can you eat for breakfast on a plant-based diet?” If you’re tired of avocado toast (my version has 26 grams of protein so it’s a great way to start the morning) and oatmeal, try a delicious bowl of rawnola! It’s one of my favorite easy vegan breakfasts that I can make super quick, the leftovers last all week, and it tastes delicious!
How to Make Rawnola Bowls
Rawnola is just the raw version of granola! It’s so easy to make and you can make a big batch on Sunday so you have an easy vegan breakfast that’s ready to go all week.
Start by putting all of the nuts into the food processor and pulse it a few times to break them up. Next, add the dates and any dried fruit you’re using and chop that up too. Lastly, add the oats, coconut, flax, chia, cinnamon, salt, and hemp hearts and pulse it a few more times. Serve the rawnola with your favorite plant milk and lots of fresh fruit on top for an easy vegan breakfast on the go!
If you’re one of those people who don’t love oatmeal because it doesn’t have a lot of texture (like my husband), then you’re going to love this rawnola. It has tons of texture! Big chunks of nuts, seeds, and oats mixed with sticky dates and dried fruit, it’s so delicious! I like to eat it like cereal with ice cold coconut milk and tons of fresh fruit.
Rawnola is loaded with healthy fats:
- Chia seeds
Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats are healthy fats that are good for your heart, they help to lower cholesterol, and they help fight inflammation in your body.
Rawnola also has plenty of superfoods:
Superfoods are specific foods that are nutrient-dense and high in vitamins and minerals that your body needs to thrive. I always try to work in a few superfoods to each meal. I want to feel the best that I can!
Rawnola Has Probiotics Too!
I use a mixture of pitted dates and Mariani probiotic apricots or prunes to give rawnola its natural sweetness and the chunky granola-like texture that I love.
I try to remember to take my probiotic supplement every day but sometimes I forget, so I love that this easy vegan breakfast rawnola already has probiotics in it. Just remember that you have to eat the probiotic prunes, apricots, or berries cold, if you heat them then it will kill the good bacteria that your body needs! You could also blend the Mariani probiotic apricots, prunes, or berries into a smoothie if you want a delicious snack on the go.
My favorite rawnola combination is a mixture of stone fruits and superfoods: juicy probiotic apricots, fresh plums, blueberries, and a kiwi for a pop of color. It’s such a delicious easy vegan breakfast! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
