Last week I went to the Everything Food Conference #EFC2017 for food bloggers, and it was so amazing! I got to meet other bloggers in person for the first time, and learn from those who have been really successful. It was inspiring and has definitely kicked me into creative mode to really think about how I can best serve those of you who read this blog. I’d love for you to leave a comment below letting me know your biggest challenge when it comes to your health, diet and food choices. What do you struggle with most, and are there specific answers you seek when you visit this site? Also, be sure to sign up for my mailing list if you haven’t already – I’ll be sending out updates and free resources over the coming months, so you wont want to miss out on that! 🙂
On to today’s newest recipe – homemade granola! I’m a big granola fan but have noticed that it’s impossible to find any granola on the market that doesn’t have sugar added to it. I searched every box at Whole Foods, and while many don’t have refined sugar, they still use some form of sugar, be it maple syrup, agave or coconut sugar. I really wanted a granola that had zero added sugar but still delivered a satisfying level of sweetness.
Enter: this Healthy High Protein Grain Free Granola! With the spices, coconut and roasted flavor from the oven, I promise you – you won’t be missing the sugar!
I made it grain free because I don’t eat a ton of grains in my diet, so experimented here with what the outcome would be with a whole lotta nuts and seeds instead. I loved the result! It’s perfect on top of chia pudding, overnight oats, a smoothie bowl or on its own for a snack.
Have you ever made your own granola? I can’t believe it took me so many years to make my own! For some reason it sounded intimidating, but I assure you – it’s really easy and, as a major bonus, will make your house smell like a fresh bakery. 🙂
