Paleo Granola

Paleo Granola

Since I’ve moved away from gluten for the most part I have tried many new recipes. This paleo granola recipe is really good and can be eaten on anything that needs a sweet crunch. Use it as a topping for muffins, on top of yogurt or coconut ice cream.


1/2 cup maple syrup

1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

1 tablespoon vanilla

1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

1/2 teaspoon allspice

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

2 cups chopped almonds

2 cups chopped pecans

2 cups unsweetened coconut flakes

1/2 cup sunflower seeds

1 cup dried cranberries or raisins

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl minus the raisins. Place on a greased rimmed cookie sheet. Bake at 325 degrees for 25 – 35 minutes, rotating the sheet half way through. Store in gallon size freezer bag for up to 2 weeks in the pantry.
