The beginning of February marked the celebration of Imbolc - the traditional festival marking the beginning of spring. In my home, we cleanse the walls and floors, clear our home with Palo Santo or White Sage, bless the home, bless my altar and I head to the kitchen for a bit of witchery. In the morning, besides a cup of tea, nothing is better than an early mourning feast. Since I am a busy goth mum of two little gothlings and a dark queen with many projects to tackle, I normally would have a big bowl of fruit or a big bowl of nice cream or a smoothie. But every once in a while, I love to feast on raw vegan waffles, raw vegan jicama breakfast tacos, chia seed pudding or my favorite - raw granola.
So, on February 3rd, I made a big batch of Raw Vegan Granola appropriately named after the celebration that welcomes spring - Imbolc's Blessing Granola. Kissed with clove, cinnamon, cardamom and mixed with vanilla, raw pumpkin seeds, organic dark buckwheat, slivered Brazil nuts, organic oats, chia seeds, goji berries and sweetened with coconut nectar - it is perfect for breakfast as cereal or a topping or a snack....the options are endless.
The smell will fill your senses and the air...and that is how it should be. This granola is full of protein, omega-3s, prosperity, good fortune and good health. Blessed Imbolc to all. <3

So, did you try this out for yourself? If so, do tell. I would love to know, see and hear from you.
Until we meet again, my darklings
