Crunchy, sweet honey nut granola was one of my all time snack favs in the “before time”. Ya know, life before AIP.
Recreating Honey Nut Granola has been a series of trial and error…. more error… and then some more error. BUT we’re all in luck because I have finally mastered it… and it’s… *kisses finger tips* …perfect-o!
I shall not bore you with a long introduction to the recipe, my Google SEO be damned. Instead, I will outline some of my personal favorite uses for this honey nut recipe and then I’ll leave you to it! ♥
Uses for this Honey “Nut” granola…
- Add a handful to a bowl, pour in this coconut milk and enjoy some honey nut cereal.
- Top CoYo yogurt with it.
- Add it to an AIP compliant parfait, such as this one.
- Portion it out into individual baggies for on-the-go munchies (examples of situations where doing this can come in handy: movie theaters, hikes, road trips, flights, moments containing zero self control *guilty*, work snacks, etc.)
- Use it as an additional add-in with this trail mix recipe here.
- Sprinkle a bit over a bowl of mixed fruit.
- Top a cold bowl of AIP compliant ice cream with some like my friend did here!
AIP Honey "Nut" Granola Recipe
- 1 Bag Organic Gemini Sliced Tigernuts
- 2 Tbsp Tigernut Flour
- 1 Tsp Cinnamon
- 1/4 Tsp Himalayan Pink Salt
- 2 1/2 Tbsp Honey
- 1/2 Tsp Gelatin
Pulse the full bag of sliced tigernuts in a food processor until it resembles the size of quick oats. It only took a few pulses in mine. This is what gives the granola the oat look and mouth feel so don't pulse them too fine.
Once the sliced tigernuts are the size you like, transfer them over to a mixing bowl. Add the remaining granola ingredients, in no particular order, and mix well. My honey was slightly cold so it helped to warm it up a bit first.
Spread the wet granola mixture flat onto a dehydrator liner or a parchment lined baking sheet.
Dehydrate until crunchy on the highest setting (took about 4-5 hours in mine). OR use an oven at the lowest temperature it can go and bake until crunchy (mine is 170° and took about 4 hours).
Don't stir the granola as it's dehydrating or baking. In order for it to hold shape, the honey needs to dry. Once it's finished and crunchy, break the batch up into whatever size of pieces you desire and store in an air tight container! Easy!
