This Grain Free Fig & Vanilla Granola fills the house with the most heavenly scent! I could make it everyday, just for that smell.  It is super easy to make, only takes about 10 minutes of hands on time and it is full of fabulous nutrition and taste.

I have many parents coming into the community who's kids are new to the whole foods world.  That is why many of the recipes I create err on the sweeter side. Making these homemade-whole food and gut healthy versions of processed foods a little on the sweeter side at first tends to make for an easier transition.  Once your taste buds are adjusted you can begin cutting back on the sweetener.  This recipe calls for 1/3 cup of honey.  You could use half of that amount and still get a great result.

 
Even with the full complement of honey and dried fruit, this granola packs a good nutrient punch and less sugar than the packaged variety. Full of fiber, protein and gut healthy fat it keeps blood sugar balanced and energy purring along.  It also comes with a full compliment of of micro-nutrients like potassium, magnesium, zinc and vitamins A and K just to name a few!  A big upgrade to that box of Quaker Oats Granola that might have had a spot on your shelf before today!
 
I hope you will give this grain free Fig & Vanilla Granola a try, maybe even this weekend, and I'd love to hear your what you think.

Ever wonder why on earth your child’s body is reacting to foods and attacking them?  It does seem a little strange that something we need in order to live and thrive, like food would cause such terrible reactions.  Food allergies are becoming more and more common and as parents it is important we understand what’s at the root of these hyper reactions.  As I always say, information is power! Knowing what is going on inside the body at a basic level can help us take the needed steps in order to make a difference for our kids and their health.

Tune in to the short video below where I use my son’s Lego to describe food allergies and what is happening inside the body! I’ll also share with you what you need to do to help the situation.  Take 5 minutes and give it a watch.
