Okay guys. It’s the weekend. Let’s talk granola.

Love it? Hate it? Have a favorite brand? Ever tried making it?

Sorry that was a lot of questions. Hope I didn’t scare you away. Bear with me! This topic is worth a chat.

Homemade granola is something I make on a super regular basis for the family that I work for. It’s one of those pantry essentials that’s as necessary to have stocked as milk and eggs. So I’ve really gotten the whole granola making thing down, and trust me, it’s not half as hard as you think it is.

BUT, while I do occasionally eat oats if they’re gluten free, I just feel better if I avoid them, or at least have them in moderation. And you and I both know that for better or for worse, when it’s good, granola is not one of those things that you eat in moderation. Am I right?

If it’s on my counter, I’m gonna eat it every morning for breakfast. Either straight up with almond milk and some fresh berries, or sprinkled over my smoothie (so good. go try it.) Especially if it’s this easy dark chocolate paleo grain free granola.

Because granola with oats is not the only option! Paleo friendly grain free granola is totally a thing and it is totally worth trying.

what is grain free granola?

 

In short, grain free granola is granola without any grains! (duhh of course you knew that) Let’s get a little bit more specific.

While granola has kind of become synonymous with grains, this version subs in nuts and seeds for the grains creating a more nutrient dense and deeply satisfying alternative. It’s held together and sweetened with almond butter and maple syrup, and spiced up with some vanilla extract, cinnamon, and chocolate.

More nutrients and it will keep you full longer? Sign me UP!

So techinically, it’s spring, right? But technically doesn’t mean much when it’s been cold, gray and raining for the past 3 weeks 🙄. I mean, you’d think mama nay nay would be just as ready as us to see the sunshine and the flowers, but I guess for now she has other plans.
