Grain-free Granola
A delicious recipe without all of the added sugar of traditional granola! Full of prebiotic-rich nuts and seeds to grow the friendly bacteria in your gut. I enjoy this granola as a snack or sprinkled over apple slices that have been dipped in fresh ground almond butter. Free of grains, dairy, and gluten! 1 Earthfood per serving: ‚ô•
