Paleo Granola Recipe


The honey in this recipe provides just the right amount of sweetness and the nuts and seeds add a perfect crunch. This granola is paleo-friendly, grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, freezer-friendly, free of refined sugars and vegetarian. For all of my vegan friends who choose to avoid honey, you can use grade B maple syrup instead.

No need to make a special trip the grocery store. As always, we like to keep it simple and easy for you! Use whatever nuts and seeds you have on hand and you’ll be good to go!
