{FITNESS FRIDAY} & Paleo Granola/Cereal Recipe


can also be found on my Pinterest Fitness Board 

Another great at home workout!  No excuses with this one and I may even do this over the weekend to avoid the revolutionist at the gym.  

Paleo Granola/Cereal Recipe

I bet you're wondering what makes it "paleo".  Well it's actually just gluten, grain, and processed food free.  
This granola or cereal (depending on how you want to eat it!) is a great substitute to your typical "whole grain" morning cereal.  Just swap almond or coconut milk for dairy milk and you've got yourself a fully blown #paleo breakfast that feels like a typical kid breakfast!  I love mixing in berries and half a banana into mine.   Ok, ok I know... onto the recipe.


1 cup almonds (raw)
1 cup cashews (unsalted)
1/2 cup coconut flakes (unsweetened)
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup sunflower seeds (without shell)
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup coconut oil
1tsp almond extract


Preheat oven to 275*F (135* C)
Put the cashews, almonds, and coconut flakes into a food processor or blender.  Pulse until broken up into small chunks (Don't add the coconut if you were able to find shredded)
Place the honey, coconut oil and almond extract into your mixing bowl and place in the microwave.  Microwave for 30-45 seconds
Add the blended nuts, seeds and coconut flakes to the mixture and stir until thoroughly coated
On a baking sheet (lined with parchment paper), spread the mix evenly
Bake for 20 minutes or until the paleo granola is lightly browned stir halfway through
Remove from the oven and let cool or set for about 15 minutes
Break into chunks and enjoy
