Grain Free Honey Coconut Granola

Grain Free Honey Coconut Granola

I am always on the hunt for yummy and healthy breakfast recipes. I could eat eggs every day all day but my girls like a little variety. And sugar filled cereal just isn't an option in our house. But this, THIS is the perfect crunchy, sweet cereal to enjoy in the mornings with cold almond milk or to add some crunch to your favorite smoothie bowl recipe. 

I got this recipe inspiration from the Against All Grain cookbook. I absolutely love all of her recipes but sometimes they are more tedious, time-consuming steps and ain't no body have time for that! ;) So I decided to skip this or that step and my granola still turned out delicious. Both girls loved it and I kept hearing "more, more" from little miss Iylee. I had a lot of questions when I posted about this recipe in my IG stories {connect with me here!} so I wanted to share it with you all so you can see just how easy this recipe is!

If you are in a breakfast rut this is the perfect way to start your morning. It's also great for on the go snack.

Just make sure that you watch the granola closely towards the end. The honey can burn and mine may have gotten just slightly over cooked but was still super delish.
