AIP Crunchy granola

AIP Paleo • Gluten free • Grain free • Dairy free • Egg free • Nut free

Breakfast on the AIP (Autoimmune Protocol) diet can be the most difficult meal to make, and there no store cereal options free from refined sugar, grain, gluten, nuts and seeds. My Orange Pumpkin and Apple Granola recipe is absolutely delicious! It's full of flavour and has the perfect crunch for a refreshing breakfast, not to mention it includes veges which you will never know are there. Serve with coconut milk and your favorite fresh fruit.
