Crunchy Paleo Granola

Gluten-Free Granola

A crunchy paleo granola is a fantastic way to start the day, and it makes for a great tasty breakfast. The combination of the honey, nuts cranberries make this dish moreish. Personally, I tend to make this now almost every week, so I can have it for breakfast before I get started with work.

If you’re already on the paleo diet, then you will probably know that breakfast is a little harder as all those cereals, bread is all now off limits. This gluten-free granola recipe makes for a great replacement of cereal and is great for breakfast on the run.

This granola will keep well for a few weeks stored in an airtight container in the cupboard. Whenever you need some granola, just scoop some out of the container. Personally, I love having this around as it’s not every morning I have time to cook breakfast. It also makes for a pretty good paleo friendly snack as well.

Cooking Tips

  • Be careful you keep an eye when you’re cooking this in the oven as honey contains a lot of sugar and will burn easily. If it appears to be burning, then remove from the oven immediately.
  • This paleo granola recipe goes amazing with fresh berries and fruits. If you’re looking for a super healthy breakfast, then try incorporating some in-season fruits in this dish.
  • Feel free to try other different types of dried fruits. My personal preference is either cranberries or raisins, but others work pretty well too.
