Pumpkin Spice Granola (AIP/Paleo) is crunchy, sweet-ish, and contains just the right amount of autumnal spices. Serve with your choice of “milk” or yogurt.Jump to Recipe
I’m not gonna lie. The first time I took a bite of this granola, I got a little teary-eyed. It had been sooooo long since I’d tasted anything even resembling cereal on the AIP diet. Before I embraced this way of eating, I ate granola every morning. I loved it. Then breakfasts became challenging. (Now, of course, I have learned to redefine breakfast!) Being able to have some cereal feels so good. So…normal. 🙂
Now that I created the cereal, I had to figure out what to eat with it. Here are some suggestions:
- on top of coconut yogurt (Christina Tidwell has a GENIUS recipe here.)
- with raisins or other dried fruit as trail mix
- atop mashed banana
- with tigernut milk, coconut milk (or almond milk, if successfully reintroduced)
- by itself as a snack
Though eating cereal for breakfast is wonderful, please don’t let it replace nutrient dense vegetables and high quality meats. (These foods are emphasized on a healing diet.) I can say, at least for myself, that having a treat every once in a while helps me stick with a good diet. I’m grateful to the athletic trainer that insisted that I have treats on occasion so that I would change my eating habits, rather than go on a “diet” that would eventually end.
But back to the granola…
Go make some! And if you are more interested in a granola bar, I’ve got you covered. Check out my Apple Cinnamon Breakfast Bars.
Long live all things pumpkin!
And happy fall! 🍂🎃🍂
