Your granola days aren’t over! In fact, they might just be getting started with this cinnamon honey paleo granola.
This recipe has my mouth watering just thinking of it. The traditional granolas most people think of are definitely not considered paleo with additions such as oats and sugar.
This one eliminates both of those things – using nuts such as pecans, walnuts, almonds, sesame seeds, coconut oil, and honey. The cinnamon is a deliciously spicy complement to all of these things.
How this works – you’re going to mix all of your “dry” ingredients (minus the raisins) in a big bowl. Give it a good toss to make sure everything is mixed and coated evenly.
You’ll take your “wet” ingredients in a small saucepan and get them melty over low heat until it’s a nice, smooth consistency. Pour this over your nut mixture and spread on a baking sheet.
Bake for about 40 minutes – be sure to stir it about halfway through the baking time. As always, be sure to keep an eye on your creation! All ovens vary a bit so yours might cook faster or slower. Keep your eyes (and nose!) alert. You don’t want this to burn!
Once it’s nice and toasty, break the granola into small pieces or use a food processor for a couple pulses to break down the size of the nuts.
Then you simply enjoy! You can eat it as is or on top of some coconut yogurt, a green smoothie, or with some almond milk.
Store in an airtight container – we recommend a glass jar!
