Grain-free Granola

This recipe for grain-free granola is adapted from the Make It Paleo cookbook by Bill Staley and Hayley Mason. It seems high maintenance because you have to soak the nuts overnight and then oven dry them the next day. It’s a process, but it’s worth it. Overall, I actually think it’s easier than the traditional granola I’ve made, which involves a sticky mess and lots of stirring. You can make a lot of modifications to the type of nuts and dried fruits you use — just play with it.

Paleo Banana Bread Muffins

I make this simple recipe for paleo banana bread from the Civilized Caveman at least twice a month with my 3 year old daughter. It makes an easy breakfast on days when I’m running out the door. It’s high in protein and healthy fats, and very low in sugar. I use ripe bananas to add some flavor. If you’re accustomed to a lot of sugar, you’ll perceive these as bland. Recalibrate your ‘buds and you’ll enjoy them.
