Reclaim your breakfast favorites with this grain free paleo granola recipe! It's grain free, refined sugar free and perfect to eat on dairy free yogurt, by itself, or like cereal in some almond milk.
There is something super satisfying about granola. It adds the perfect crunch to yogurt. It's a slightly sweet snack that hits the spot. And don't even get me started about a bowl of granola topped with some almond milk!
Now, I don't want to mislead you. The granola I am talking about is not the same as what you would find in most stores. Traditional granola is made of oats, which are considered a grain and are not part of the paleo lifestyle. While some may choose to keep oats in their lifestyle, I have opted to leave them out.
Instead, the granola I eat is made of different nuts and seeds, dried fruit, and honey. It uses real ingredients and is nutritious and delicious. Based off of how much of the granola I can eat in one setting, that's a plus. I'm really glad that I can still feel good about what I'm eating (and still button my pants.) Guilt-free granola, coming up!
