20 Best Grain-Free Granola Recipes
Classic granola recipes are made with rolled oats, but if you’re following a grain-free diet like Paleo or keto, all grains – even the gluten-free ones – are off the table. If you’re grain-free and want to enjoy granola, what ingredients are left? Lots, actually. These 20 Best Grain-Free Granola recipes are packed with tasty ingredients and are loaded with healthy fats, protein and fibre.
Grain-free granolas are nutrient-dense and satiating, which means you likely won’t be able to gobble an enormous bowl. There are other ways to use your grain-free granola, like sprinkled on smoothie bowls, dairy-free ice cream, roasted winter squash and dairy-free yogurt. And if you make a savory grain-free granola, you can add it to salads or scrambled eggs. Plenty of possibilities await you!
