This Moringa Fruit-Nut-Ola Grain-Free is a delicious and simple mixture of nuts, dried fruits, sesame oil, and Moringa powder. It’s mildly green and a little sweet, a little tart, and filling enough for breakfast. I think of it as trail mix thrown into a food processor!



  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup raisins or other dried fruit of choice
  • ½ cup dried unsulfured apricots, soaked for 10 minutes in warm water and drained
  • 1 cup white sesame seeds
  • ½ cup sesame, walnut or other oil (I don’t recommend olive)
  • 2 tablespoons Moringa powder
  • pinch of salt, optional


  1. Place pecans, almonds and walnuts in food processor. Blend until coarsely chopped, 1-2 minutes.
  2. Add raisins and soaked dried apricots. Blend until fruits and nuts are chopped to about the same size, about 2 more minutes.
  3. Blend in oil, optional salt, and Moringa powder until well mixed. If you want to have some parts of your fruit-nut-ola remain tan-colored as in my photo, remove some of the fruit/nut mixture from the food processor and transfer it to your baking dish. Then add the Moringa powder to the rest.
  4. Spread in an even layer in 9 x 13 baking pan (or 10 x 15 pan if you prefer it very crisp). Press down using a spatula.
  5. Bake at 275 F for 20-25 minutes, or until edges are just slightly browned; cool.
  6. Break into chunks; store in sealed containers.
  7. Serve in bowls with non-dairy or dairy kefir and fresh fruit.


Substitute any of the nuts with any of these: filberts (hazelnuts); macadamia nuts; sunflower seeds; pumpkin seeds

Baking this recipe helps it to set and become crunchy like granola. Note that after baking at 275 degrees F for 20 minutes, your ingredients will no longer be raw. If you are very interested in raw fruit-nut-ola, dehydrate at 135 degrees in a dehydrator for at least 36 hours. Or this mixture can be rolled into balls and refrigerated.
