Granolas are notoriously high in oil and sugar, but this one is oil- and sugar-free! It gets its sweetness from fruit and its fat from nuts and seeds. Serve it with unsweetened nondairy milk or yogurt or Vanilla Chia Pudding and fresh fruit.
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
Put the water, dates, nut butter, banana, orange, cinnamon, and vanilla extract in a blender or food processor and process into a smooth paste.
