Nut Free Granola + Against All Grain Cookbook Giveaway

Nut Free Granola and Cookbook Giveaway from Weelicious!

The first time I made Gluten-Free Banana Porridge for my family, they went nuts. I make it all the time now even though we’re not gluten-free. Having said that, my husband and I would both admit we feel better when we consume less gluten.

Danielle Walker’s first book -- which contains the aforementioned Banana Porridge recipe -- was (and still is) a gangbuster hit, so trust me when I tell you that her second book, Against All Grain_ Meals Made Simple, is just as exciting and eye-opening when it comes to eating a gluten free and/or paleo diet. I was looking to try out a recipe or two from the book but while reading it everything looked so amazing I ended up putting tabs on more than half of the pages. That didn’t exactly help me narrow down my choices for what to test, so remembering how much my brood loves Danielle's Banana Porridge recipe, I decided that another breakfast recipe like this Nut-Free Granola had to be a score.

A simple honey syrup is made and then tossed with everything from chia seeds to coconut, pepitas, cinnamon and more, creating a scrumptious granola that demands to be served with almond milk or yogurt -- although I ended up munching on handfuls of it simply on its own throughout the week. I added some to my kids' school lunch (a picture of it from my Instagram is posted here for you to see) since it’s a high protein snack treat that's perfect for nut-free schools.
