Grain Free Granola

Grain Free Granola

 

When I was following the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, I couldn’t eat grains of any kind. I really missed granola, and back then, I couldn’t find any grain-free varieties in stores so I created this recipe using nuts, seeds, and coconut flakes. Even though I can tolerate most grains again, and there are now many grain-free granola options in stores, I still prefer this homemade version. It makes a wonderful snack, cereal, or topping for yogurt and açaí bowls. Enjoy!
