Although granola is often considered a health food, it’s generally loaded with added sugar and unhealthy fat. But not this homemade granola cereal recipe!
This paleo granola is packed with nuts, “superfood” seeds, and coconut oil for a healthy way to enjoy a snack or breakfast. You’ll love the nutty, chocolaty, slightly coconuty flavor with a hint of natural sweetness.
I’ve added extra protein to this granola so you’ll get the essential amino acids your body needs to make energy and develop lean muscle mass. Protein also keeps you satiated after eating, so it’s perfect for including in your morning meal.
Who wants to feel hungry shortly after eating (which is how you’ll feel after downing a bowl of high sugar cereal)?

Grain-Free Homemade Granola Cereal
There are no grains in this paleo granola, only protein-packed nuts and hemp seeds. Both offer not only extra protein, but heart-healthy fatty acids too. The almonds are loaded with Vitamin E for healthy skin and eyes.
Don’t be intimidated by the hemp seeds in this recipe – they’re full of great health benefits.
Rich in antioxidants to stimulate your immune system, high in dietary fiber, and loaded with healthy fatty acids, hemp seeds contain gamma linoleic acid, a unique fatty acid that reduces inflammation and lowers blood pressure.
This recipe also uses coconut oil, which lowers bad cholesterol and boosts your metabolism.
