Blueberry Pecan Paleo Granola

Blueberry Pecan Paleo Granola

I love homemade granola. I’m always experimenting with different flavors. Today I had some dried organic blueberries, and I thought they would be wonderful with pecans and maple syrup. So here’s my latest granola recipe — blueberry pecan paleo granola.

This granola is absolutely addictive. I had to put it away in the cupboard so I would stop snacking on it. The maple syrup makes it extra crunchy, and I love the hint of buttery flavor from the ghee. Of course, if you want a completely dairy-free granola, you can always substitute coconut oil for the ghee.

This blueberry pecan paleo granola is super-fast — and it’s gluten-free and grain-free. Try it for breakfast or as a grab-and-go snack any time of the day.

    This looks delicious, Lisa! I love granola and muesli and can hardly afford to buy it. Making my own would be a much better (and probably healthier) option. Blueberries are my favorite food, so your version is calling my name!

      Thanks, Jelli! This granola has been calling my name too. Luckily, my husband finished it off this morning so I won’t eat any more of it. :)

    Do you calculate the nutritional value of your recipes per serving sizes?

    This granola is AMAZING… I did make a couple changes to mine: I used raw honey instead of maple syrup and raisins instead of blueberries. Thanks for the recipe!!

    Finally had a chance to make some! Oh my gosh that is good. I am going to have to make my husband hide it from me before I eat the whole bag!
