I have heard of Paleo Granola and was intrigued that it was made from nuts and seeds. No oats, whatsoever. So I decided to give it a try. I am so glad that I did.
I have made this recipe for Paleo Granola quite a few times now. It is SO good! I don't even miss the oats. It tastes good on it's own as a snack, with a bit of almond milk, or on top of Greek yogurt. Yummy!
First I placed the chopped almonds and pecans, pumpkin seeds, and shredded coconut in a large bowl.
Next I put the coconut oil, honey, maple syrup, cinnamon, and salt in a saucepan.
Over low heat, I mixed the ingredients until they were dissolved and blended together.
I then put the coconut oil mixture into the bowl with the nuts, seeds, and coconut.
Mix, mix, mix until everything is well combined.
I then spread the mixture onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake at 300 degrees, stirring
occasionally, for about 20 minutes.
Once cool add a cup of raisins.
Then, enjoy as a snack on it's own, with a little almond milk, or on top of yogurt.
