Going Nuts for Granola


For those of us facing food challenges, focusing on what we can’t eat sometimes gets discouraging. But then to stumble upon an author/chef who has paved a way ahead, the journey suddenly takes an empowering fork in the road and on we go. Danielle Walker's Against All Grain, Delectable Paleo Recipes to Eat Well & Feel Great: Gluten Free, Grain Free and Dairy Free is just that book for me.

This recipe for  “Vanilla-Almond Granola” can be found in her award-winning cookbook, or at her website here. The nuts are presoaked in salt water for 24 hours so they are easy to digest. I modified the recipe due to personal preference and the ingredients I had on hand, including: almonds, walnuts, pecans, cashews, sea salt, maple syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon, shredded coconut, and golden raisins. You won’t believe it’s Paleo!

Serve over yogurt, with almond milk, or dry as a snack.
