Grain-Free Granola

A little crunch and a little sweet are often missed when you go low carb. This recipe quite satisfies. For GAPS/SCD, omit the chia and substitute a half cup of honey for the stevia. (Although, I have to say I do not understand that prohibition against stevia in GAPS/SCD. It doesn’t feed bacteria and I don’t believe it irritates the lining of the gut.)

Grain-Free Granola

  • 8 cups nuts of choice, raw, or soaked and dehydrated. Mix of cashews, walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts,…
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 cup nut flour of choice, almond or hazelnut
  • 4 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp ground ginger
  • ¼ cup ground chia (I use a coffee grinder)
  • ½ cup coconut oil, gently melted
  • ½ cup water
  • 6 droppers full alcohol free stevia extract (150 drops)

    Preheat oven to 250 F.

    Mix dry ingredients together well. Whisk together the wet ingredients. Mix all thoroughly.

    Spread on two half sheet pans (approximately 12 x 17). Bake for one hour.

    Cool and enjoy with choice of milk, coconut kefir, or on its own as a snack.

    Makes approximately one gallon. One gallon seem like too much? It’s easy to cut the recipe in half!

    But, around my house, a gallon doesn’t last nearly long enough.
