This grain free granola is a really grown up granola. Deeply dark, with almost bitter molasses tones, it is actually more of a breakfast crunch on account of the fact that it does not clump particularly well. Granola is easy to make, but can be tricky to perfect; especially without the properties of grains that make it stick together so well. My first granola recipe has been incredibly popular (included in my book Paleo: 12 Weeks to Change Your Life) and this stuck together really well, on account of the egg white added to gain adhesion, but I wanted this version to be egg free as well as grain free.
It is no accident that traditional breakfast foods such as toast or cereal have been staples for so long. Crunchy, carby, and often sweet, these are the things with which we want to break our nightly fast. Not to mention the need to get up and go. Paleo granola certainly does the job of filling the need when this kind of breakfast calls.
As delicious and tempting as this granola is I would not recommend that it is eaten every day. The recipe includes dried fruit so there is going to be a higher proportion of sugar (albeit natural) and along with the nuts and seeds is very nutrient dense. I would therefore recommend that you stick to solid breakfast staples, such as eggs and avocado, for the majority of the time and treat yourself to granola when the urge strikes.
