Grain Free Granola


Print Recipe
LOVE this grain free granola!!! Nuts and seeds instead of grains and more carbs! This is perfect for smoothie bowls, yogurt, cereal, or whatever else you can think of! Warning: It's not that sweet.. I know a lot of store bought granolas are pretty sugary. My main goal with a grain free granola, is to decrease my carbohydrate (sugar) intake, so to make it super sweet would really be missing the point. You can always add more coconut nectar if you want, but I promise you'll like my recipe too!
