This is a family favorite for sure, and almost impossible to keep in the house for very long.  We eat it for breakfast sometimes but more often as a snack.

I have tried quite a few grain free granolas but this one is my favorite.  It is super simple to make, and you can easily add, subtract or modify ingredients to your liking.

I got this from Paleo mom (http://www.thepaleomom.com).  I usually triple this recipe but I don’t triple the nutmeg.  I find the flavor almost overpowers the granola.

At times I have left out the vanilla.  Usually by accident but I liked it just as well. I usually slice a bit of a banana in mine and have it with coconut milk.
