Alright cereal aficionados. I’ve got something for you. After giving most grain and gluten the boot a year ago, I was stuck trying to find a non oat gluten free granola. I mean, we ate oatmeal almost everyday. Articles like this one will help you open your eyes and be more cautious about what you put in your cereal bowl in the mornings. I found something called Paleo Crunch but, the price made it hard to keep up with. So here’s a delicious recipe for gluten free granola. Well actually…grain free granola.

Every time I turn someone onto this stuff they just cant get enough.  So it’s time to share this recipe with the masses.

There are so many recipes for grain-free granola out there so it’s hard to figure out who came up with the original recipe.

This homemade granola is grain free, gluten-free and Paleo. If none of the previous descriptions apply to you guess what? It’s delicious. Certainly, you’re in that category right? Everyone that visits my home has to try it. It’s a right of passage. And the reviews have been good.

So what in the cereal? Seeds, vanilla, maple and spices but absolutely no grain.

You can add 3 cups of any nuts of your choosing to this recipe if you’d like but, my kids prefer it nut-free. So that’s how I make it. After the grain free paleo crunch is out of the oven, I add toppings like almonds and fruit.
