I absolutely love some good granola- especially homemade. It’s honestly so easy to make, there’s no need to buy store bought! It’s a quick mix of nuts and seeds, then a coating of coconut oil, honey, and cacao for a rich chocolatey flavor.

This granola is gluten free, grain free, dairy free, and refined sugar free.Plus, it’s made with simple ingredients!

This recipe packs fiber, healthy fats, plant-based protein, and prebiotics from the nuts and seeds. So good!

Tip: be sure to allow the granola to completely cool. I know it’s hard to wait, but you want that perfect crunchy, clustery texture!

I’m all about a good crunch factor, especially on top of my smoothies! It makes a smoothie more satisfying, and adds healthy fats to make it more filling. Win win!

    Granola looks delicious! What do you recommend subbing the buckwheat groats for? I don’t have any on hand. Thank you!

  2. CC says:

    Amazing! Didn’t think I’d like it with all of the different nuts but it is seriously delicious.

  3. Artemis says:

    I made it without buckwheat groats since I didn’t have any on hand and I substitute the cashews with pecans. It was delicious! Thank you, Mia!

  4. Josephine Taylor says:

    Delicious! The aroma filled the whole house and got the family super excited…such a treat. Thank you Mia.

  5. Jenn says:

    THE BEST GRANOLA! Made this without the buckwheat groats as well and it was soooo delicious still. A really yummy and simple treat to make yourself/your family! I ate this on its own with almond milk (a great ‘cereal’ type substitute if you struggle to find actual cereal you can eat haha) and I put it in my yogurt or even on ice cream would be delicious.
