paleo granola


Warning: This recipe will result in snack-aholicism.

I thought it would be best to start with a general warning about how dang fantastic this Paleo Granola recipe is my cookbook Paleo Eats. Seriously. If you make this don’t say that I didn’t warn you.  We powered through this recipe in less than 3 days. Mr. Bejelly was eating it as breakfast cereal for breakfast, lunch and dinner and I, well, I was just shoving it in my mouth by the handful.

I know.  You’re thinking. This is paleo granola. Granola is boring. Granola is what people ate in the early 90s.  Well, this recipe will make you rethink granola and having you and your kids begging for more.

Don’t believe me? Make it and let me know what you think below.

    WOW! This has me drooling! Out of everything I make – cake, ice cream, sweet potato rounds, etc – granola is always the one treat I can’t stop eating! I love adding dates to mine – the perfect chewy goodness! 😀

    We couldn’t stop snacking on this granola and almost didn’t have enough for a bowl of breakfast goodness. Although we don’t eat paleo all the time, we are gluten-free kitchen so this granola is a great recipe for people tired of the usual GF cereals. Thanks for the recipe!!
