Paleo Granola: Walnut Coconut Pecan


 

This easy Paleo Granola with its perfect walnut, coconut, pecan medley, is simple and quick to make. It is great eaten plain, as a snack, or party mix. Add some sliced bananas, pour coconut or almond milk over a bowl full, and enjoy as a yummy breakfast cereal.

 

I prefer a finer consistency in my Paleo Granola, for those times I eat it as cereal with almond milk, so I chop the nuts into smaller pieces. If you like a coarser texture, leave the nuts in larger pieces. This Paleo Granola stores well in an airtight container such as a capped mason jar. I usually put one jar in the freezer and one in the fridge, thinking it will last a long time. But in our house it has a way of disappearing fast!
