Paleo Granola

I have been playing with this Paleo Granola for A LONG TIME and I think I found a winner! I started out using a more traditional recipe from my friend Stephanie, over at The Nutrtion Mom. Stephanie is such an inspiration and has a really beautiful story – stop by and say hi! She’s doing BIG things in beautiful and delicious ways. Stephanie’s also my go to girl for a (delicious) Raw Detox + Cleanse! almods When I realized I needed to get off of grains I was super bummed to think about missing out on one of my all time favorite snacks – granola. I have loved granola since I was a young girl – before it resurged into mainstream when folks would endearingly call me a crazy hippie. Folks being my parents. Boy how they were wrong! Mostly. Love you Mom + Dad❤️

One day it struck me that I didn’t have to give up granola, I simply needed to leave the oats out and add more nuts. And that’s what I did. I love to share this as gifts for holidays or just special days. One of the lovely ladies at my Nutritionist’s office said it was her “favorite new food!”. My heart jumped when I heard her and I realized I had to share it with all of you sooner than later. Enjoy! paleo granola Paleo Granola

4 cups of raw nuts (pecans, cashews, almonds, mixed nuts all work)
1 cup of dates, seeded and finely chopped
1 cup of dried raisins and/or cranberries
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup ground flax
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup any nut butter
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp ginger spice

Pre-heat oven to 200F. Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Mix all ingredients together on the tray (why make more work for yourself with a bowl?). Spread evenly across the tray. Taste test to ensure seasoning is to your liking. If you don’t inhale most of the granola at this point, place in the oven and stir every 15-20 minutes so it doesn’t burn on the bottom. Bake for one hour. Let cool and enjoy!

In Love and Joy,

“Three things will last forever–faith, hope, and love–and the greatest of these is love.”

-1 Corinthians 13:13
