As I’ve shared before, finding grain free breakfast cereal has been one of our biggest challenges.   Spunky Coconut’s Vanilla Almond Strawberry Granola has been a blessing.  Kelly has no idea of how grateful we are. (Thank you very much Kelly!!) We have varied the recipe a little and changed the name.

Almond/Walnut Granola.

Soak 2 cups of walnuts & 1.5 cups chopped almonds for about 8 hours.
Rinse and strain.
Add :
1 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup almond flour
1 cup applesauce
1 tsp of honey
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
twist sea salt
Dehydrate overnight, until dry and crunchy.
Top with tinned peaches
Serve with goat’s milk.

  1. You do sound a lot like us 🙂
    We are a homeschooling family of 8 (so far 6 little ones). I have had a struggling with my weight for about 7 years now – nothing I have done has made a difference. We have been raw vegan and are now looking into Paleo, I have become an herblist to try and "fix" myself but so far nothing has worked. So I had a question (or 5) for you…
    First – I am having trouble with breakfast the most – we have a farm and need to be done with breakfast quickly. I used to make big batches of granola over the weekend and feed it during the week – that included rolled oats of course (which my very naturally minded doctor has told me that oats do have gluten – he says that is why they are so sticky..). What I have trouble finding is a recipe big enough for my family – any paleo granola recipes out there serve 2-4 people for a couple days. I need enough to serve 5 very hungry kiddos (the animals eat breakfast before we do – so they are hungry) that I can make a big batch of over the weekend.. Have you found anything like that yet? What I really need is a cookbook done by the mama of a large family.. one that also understands that we are all here during lunch too and eating shrimp soup is just not really possible with all the prep work involved.
    Ok – and lunch is usually a sandwich (on homemade or Ezekial bread) and fruit – we have been health nuts for a long while now and all chips, packaged food, etc.. has been long gone 🙂
    And how about any BIG crockpot meals without grains?

    Ok – I am off for now – only have limited computer time. There is a neat blog called "Everyday Paleo" – she is mama to 3 boys and does make larger portions, but she is also able to work out for hours a day (she is a trainer) and make exotic lunchs that homeschooling mommies just dont have time to do…

    I am enjoying looking around your blog – Thanks for all the info 🙂

    I checked out your blog, wow, some familiar living:)
    I'm still struggling to find the answer in the breakfast area myself, but stay tuned;)
    As for lunches I am making progress in that area at last! slow cooker meals, I'll try to write a post for you soon.
    So humbled you are enjoying my blog.
