Recipe Tips

  • Keep an eye on the granola when you're baking it in the oven as honey contains a lot of sugar and will burn quickly. 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 well too.
  • If you prefer a less chunky granola then leave it in the food processor for longer. I prefer mine to be slightly chunky.
