Paleo Pumpkin Granola (Gluten-free. Grain-free. Dairy-free)

Paleo Pumpkin Granola (Gluten-free. Grain-free. Dairy-free)

Crispy, sweet, and pleasing is what so many of us crave at certain times in a day. Because it is so nutrient-dense, my paleo, Grain-free Granola just so happens to be the answer to help satisfy that craving, helping us to avoid a junk food binge or a tempting fast-food run.

Another great thing is, this recipe is about as simple as simple can get. Its a super quick preparation of ingredients, and 10-15 minutes in the oven. I added chopped dried fruits (apricots and peaches), and seeds (pumpkin and sunflower) to give it a rich flavor and nutrient boost.

All in all, my Grain-free Granola is delicious! It's one of those enjoyable snack foods that's the perfect nibble to take to work, to enjoy as a post-workout snack, and to make as a gift.
