Grain Free Granola
One of the (many) fun things about blogging is connecting with other bloggers and authors. I know firsthand just how much work and heart goes into writing a cookbook, so when a blogger friend has a new book out, I always celebrate with them. Pamela Salzman’s new cookbook, Kitchen Matters (Amazon affiliate link), just showed up on my doorstep and I am loving pouring over the beautiful, nourishing recipes. Pamela’s cooking style is much like my own: full of beautiful, whole foods that taste delicious. Pamela agreed to let me share this granola recipe with you.
This grain-free granola is light and crispy, just sweet and salty enough, with irresistible hints of cinnamon and vanilla. I love making homemade granola because it allows me to control the amount of sugar and quality of ingredients. I also love giving homemade granola as gifts around the holidays. You may remember my Chocolate Granola, which also has superfood seeds, or the Tropical Granola in my cookbook. This grain-free granola is just perfect and I can see why it’s such a hit in Pamela’s cooking classes and family.
Kitchen Matters is filled with delicious whole food recipes. I love that so many of the recipes are vegetarian, vegan, or vegan adaptable. Pamela definitely knows how to create recipes that celebrate real food – my favorite!
If you’d like to incorporate more nuts and seeds into your diet, this recipes is a delicious way to do it! Nuts and seeds provide protein, good fats, and fiber to keep us satiated. Sprinkle this granola on yogurt, smoothie bowls, oatmeal, chia pudding, berries, or just snack on it in the afternoon!
You can get Kitchen Matters wherever books are sold, including Amazon (Affiliate Link).
