Move over grocery store granola – my homemade paleo granola is here.

Trying to find healthy granola can be tricky.  I am always searching for granola with nourishing ingredients like nuts and dried fruit. But you also want your granola to be sweet – but not too sweet and filled with big clusters of oats, seeds, and nuts. And if you’re anything like me, you’ve come to realize that you are not going to find that granola at the grocery store.

This is exactly why I created my homemade paleo granola recipe.

Not only is this the best granola recipe that is a perfect snack or addition to any breakfast, but it is also so easy to make and completely customizable to your favourite dried fruit or nuts you may be craving.

Healthy, easy, and seriously delicious – my homemade paleo granola recipe is guaranteed to make you not look for granola at the grocery store again.
