Blueberry Pecan Granola Recipe

Paleo Blueberry Pecan Granola. 

If you’re like me, snacks aren’t a sometimes, they’re an always. SNACKS. ARE. GREAT.

Popcorn, chips, bars, shakes, crackers, cheese, candy, cookies… basically any form of junk we call “snacks” are providing 0 benefit and a heap of saturated fat, refined sugar and empty calories. There are VERY little nutrients in the snacks listed above, but I understand when we crave something salty or sweet and crunchy.. So here’s how you do that – minus all the crap major brands like to put into their processed packaged items! Ballin.
Remember, snacks don’t have to be processed or come in a bag or a box or from Nabisco or Starbucks… They can and should be healthy choices. If you take 30 minutes one day you have snacks for a whole week! For 1 episode of your Netflix marathons this Sunday make some of this deliciousness and not only will your apartment smell heavenly but your breakfast just got a hell of a lot better and so did your afternoon snack.
Simple & Easy.  Here we go!

Here I used it for a Greek Yogurt parfait. My favorite yogurt is Wallaby’s 0% (read why here) with 2 strawberries sliced and a drizzle of Manuka honey!
