So in the past few weeks I've had many people contact me looking for paleo granola options and while I do have some brands that I love dearly, such as:

·       Whole me

·       Bubba’s

·        Steve’s PaleoKrunch

·       PaleoNola

·       Blissful Eats

·       And some others I’ve stumbled across too!

I honestly like making my own the best! It's seriously so easy, it makes more, it's complete deliciousness and it’s cheaper too! Now I'm far from a grocery Nazi, in fact, over the years my grocery budget has actually increased! But I'm ok with that because I find it extremely important to nourish my body with high quality, non-processed foods, so I'm totally on board with paying the extra change that these foods may cost. Why? Because I haven't spent a dime {other than my insurance premiums} on anything healthcare related in years and I give ALL of the credit for that to my diet and healthy lifestyle. And on top of that, I feel and look the best that I ever have in my life, so I’d say it’s #totallyworthit. Doctor’s bills or grocery bills… you decide!

Ok, ok, rant over… but really, if the pre made granola is just not in your budget, try out this recipe! Like I said before it's complete deliciousness, so you might like it better than the store bought stuff anyways;)
