This is the first of a seven-part post series for Dustin Harder’s new cookbook, Epic Vegan: Wild and Over-the-Top Plant-Based Recipes. I’m so excited for him - after all his epic experiences as The Vegan Roadie on YouTube, Dustin has put together an epic cookbook. The book is full of delicious recipes, which he then collects into combinations that are truly epic. Some examples: Almost Famous Buffalo Chicken Lasagna, Crab Rangoon Pizza, Caramel Cookie Brownie Milkshake - you get the idea. And yes, it’s all vegan! He finds a fabulous way in each recipe.

Easy Orange Pecan Power Granola

I forget how easy granola is to make.  Especially vegan, totally plant-based, real food granola.  There's no need to even melt anything with this particular recipe.  Just toss all the dry stuff in a bowl and all the wet stuff in another smaller bowl, mix those two together, spread it all on cookie sheets, and bake.  There are so many combination possibilities.  What I love about this particular granola is that lovely citrus-dessert flavor that comes from the orange zest and juice mixing with the vanilla and pecans.  Oh yeah.  I love coming across a bite that contains sweet dried apricot and a toasty coconut flake, too.  There's a nice balance of fruit, oats, nuts and seeds, and a richness from this balance even without any butter or oil added.  This granola is a variety of nutritious real food that satiates, is easily packable, and tastes delicious.
