Grain free granola made with coconut, a variety of nuts, coconut oil and cinnamon. Paleo, gluten-free, low carb and low sugar.
Sugar is a hot topic in the nutrition world today — and for good reason. Many prevalent health concerns (think Type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, cardiovascular disease, liver cirrhosis and dementia) have all been linked to diets loaded with sugar, most of it coming from the added sugars in processed foods and sweetened beverages.
Only 5 Ingredients
unsweetened coconut flakes
raw nuts: I used a blend of cashews, almonds, walnuts and pumpkin seeds

How to Make Grain Free Granola
No Added Sugar
Back to the book… In addition to the 8 week detox program, the book has over 100 sugar-free recipes — with beautiful photos I might add. I’ve already bookmarked a bunch to try but after hearing from Sarah that the granola was one of the most popular recipes, I knew I needed to make a batch.
I made mine without the brown rice syrup and it turned out to be delicious. I can totally see why it’s such a popular recipe. It does a great job of satisfying my craving for sweet and crunchy granola but without the grains and added sugar. It’s so packed with healthy fats from the coconut, nuts and chia seeds so it’s really quite filling. I love it on greek yogurt!
