Grain free breakfast cereal prepared in advance

Cinnamon-spiced macadamia granola


grain free granola recipe

After a long 12 weeks I have finally settled on a breakfast that I can eat on the SIBO diet that tastes great and I am happy to eat almost daily. It has taken a few tweaks and versions to get this one sorted. I do apologise if you are waiting for some regular recipes to show up here again, they will do soon.

A while ago my friend Jodie shared her gorgeous granola recipe with me. I loved it but needed to come up with a grain-free version. I have seen some Paleo versions at the shops but none I could eat. They all have dried fruit or a grain of some sort. I couldn’t imagine eating cereal that is almost entirely nut-based. This breakfast is satisfying and filling. I have been enjoying it with almond milk.

You could add berries, a banana or other fruit is you would like to do so, or other nuts that you enjoy.

This recipe is best made as a batch in advance and stored in an airtight jar or container. This means you have it on hand for a quick start to the day.
