Grain Free Granola! Whole-30 compliant!

For any eating program to be successful, you need variety and great flavors to satisfy your palette! This super simple recipe will do both!

Most people think that store bought granolas are a healthy option. You may be surprised to learn that most of them are not! In fact, many of them have as much sugar and preservative chemicals as some of those cereals that are full of little marshmallows!

If you're not following a whole 30 program, you can modify this recipe by adding 3-4 cups of oatmeal. You can also sweeten it up by adding a 3/4 cup raw honey and 1/4 cup of pure maple syrup along with 2 tablespoons of pure vanilla.

This recipe will take you about 10 minutes to prep and 25 minutes to cook. Make it on a Saturday morning and have it to enjoy all week! Let's get started!


Mix together in large bowl:

2 Cups chopped pecans

2 Cups chopped shelled pistachios

2 Cups chopped walnuts

1 Cup unsweetened coconut flakes or chips

1/2 Cup sunflower seeds (shelled)

1/4 Cup sesame seeds

3/4 Cup roasted pumpkin seeds

3/4 Cup organic pepitas (basically shelled pumpkin seeds!)

1-2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground clove

1 teaspoon sea salt

Optional - 1 cup or raisons or other dried fruit. (Check your whole 30 food guide!)

Mix together in separate bowl:

2/3 Cup unsweetened applesauce

2 tablespoons of chia seeds

2-4 tablespoons of almond butter

1/2 Cup coconut oil melted

2-3 drops *doTERRA cinnamon essential oil (add to melted coconut oil)

1 drop *doTERRA clove essential oil (add to melted coconut oil)

*Do NOT ingest other brands of essential oils unless they have a nutritional supplement label on the bottle. Most things labeled "pure essential oils" are complete synthetic creations and are no different than what's in a plug in air freshener!

Alternative for wet ingredients: Omit applesauce and almond butter and add 2 large egg whites, beaten to light froth. Add the egg whites and mix into dry mixture, THEN add the rest of wet ingredients.

Add wet ingredients to larger bowl and mix together.

Spread onto sheet pan lined with parchment paper

Bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutes, rotating pan half way through cooking time

Let cool then store and enjoy throughout the week!

Serve with almond milk or coconut milk. Garnish with fresh blueberries, blackberries or strawberries!
