Super Simple Grain Free Granola

Super Simple Grain Free Granola

For the past couple of months, I have been avoiding eggs. I got some blood drawn and learned that I had an allergy. My doctor suggested avoiding eggs for a few months to see if I felt any better. Since they were apart of my daily breakfast routine, I needed to come up with some quick, affordable and filling way to replace my breakfast staple. So, I started brainstorming ideas that would fit the bill. Insert this super simple grain free granola. I whipped up a batch based on what I had my cabinets. This recipe is customizeable! Feel free to add whatever you have on hand!
