Grain-Free Granola

Mornings tend to be one of the busiest parts of the day, so quick and easy breakfasts are a must for me! One of my favourite go-to’s is coconut yogurt with granola and fresh fruit. It’s simple, delicious, and the options are virtually endless!

This seed granola is based on a recipe from The Elimination Diet. I find it much easier on my system then other granolas that contain oatmeal or other grains. This one is primarily seeds and spices. Can’t get much simpler than that!

This nut and seed granola is a great option for gluten and grain-sensitive folk.

(These perfectly imperfect bowls are actually Coconut Bowls – coconut shells that have been made into bowls to help reduce waste from making other coconut products. How cool is that?!?)
