My son is at the age where he loves to help in the kitchen. This Paleo granola recipe is a recipe that is really easy and a lot of fun to have kids help with.
When I switched to the Paleo diet I found that I had a lot of trouble with finding a really good filling breakfast other than eggs and bacon. I love eggs and bacon, but I could only have that on so many days! I also missed the crunch of cereal. I used to love eating granola, so I set out to find a good granola recipe.
While I found some good ones out there, (like this tropical paleo granola from Nom Nom Paleo) I wanted something a little more simple that I could make weekly. So I ended up just mixing and experimenting with my own recipe until it came out how I wanted.
You don’t need to be eating a Paleo diet to enjoy this recipe. It’s a great cereal and it’s also gluten free!
The recipe below is for cereal, but I have also used it to make grain free granola bars for my son. I simply added more honey and coconut oil as well as some more kid friendly ingredients such as chocolate chips.
Check out how my son and I make Paleo Granola!
- 3 Cups chopped walnuts, pecans, cashews, and pumpkin seeds
- 1 cup raisins
- 4 T flax seeds
- 4 T chia seeds
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ¼ cup honey
- ¼ cup coconut oil
- Combine coconut oil and honey in a pot on low/medium hit. Once it has melted together add spices and vanilla
- Stir well
- Set aside
- Pour nuts, seeds, flax, chia, and raisins into a large bowl
- Mix well
- Pour honey mixture over top and stir until combined
- On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper spread the granola until even
- Put in the oven at 350 for 10-15 or until granola is golden brown
- Cool until set (This could take a hour or two, if you are short on time put it in the freezer for 30 mins)
- Break granola into pieces

I like to enjoy mine with fresh seasonal fruit and almond milk. I love that this is high in good fats and protein. It keeps me full for hours until I finally get to sit down for lunch! Plus, it’s a great snack for my son without all the extra and unwanted added sugar!
What would you add to your granola?
